On May 5, 1862, in the town of Puebla, the outnumbered Mexican army defeated the French Army. Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of freedom and culture.
Today there will fiestas across the country offering cultural foods, mariachi music, colorful costumes and fun for everyone. Take in the sights and sounds in your neighborhood and share what you are doing for Cinco de Mayo.
My mother, youngest daughter and i are spending the day together. We will make some traditional foods; tortillas, red and green chili enchiladas, salsa and sweet rice.
My daughter is heading back to S. Dakota for college so she has to get her fill of home cooked food. Plus she and her grandmother have plans to share recipes, patterns and crafty projects. Today is also my brother-in-laws birthday; Feliz Cumpleanos Walt!!
Have a wonderful day!! Feliz Cinco de Mayo!!
