Tomorrow is Cinco De Mayo-just that thought makes me crave Mexican food. Of course, it doesn’t take much for me to crave Mexican food-it’s one of my favorites. In my younger days, I used to make my Cinco plans way in advance with careful contemplation of-who was going to have the cheapest margarita prices, the best food specials, the hippest bands, and where could I get in early to hold a table for all my friends. I guess I wised up or just got older to realize the best place to celebrate Cinco De Mayo is home-no crowds. I either make a batch of margaritas or have a few Mexican beers with lime. My biggest decision to make for Cinco nowadays is what to cook. But one thing is for sure, I always have my Mexican Fiesta or Cantina Mariachi CD’s playing. Got to set the party mood!

Here is a recap of a few of my creations to help satisfy any Mexican food cravings.
