Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Saturday, May 5, 2012

Since posting this a few years ago, I have even more Mexican recipes here on my blog. Click here for photos and even more recipes!

Mexican Food Wrap-Up. (May Include Indian Food.)

Just a quick post to say Happy Cinco de Mayo! Whether you are Mexican or not, at least here in the US many of us look forward to this day to enjoy festive food and drink. It occurred – while I sit on the train en route to Portland Maine for the day – that I have a few posts of this ilk, so I’m simply summarizing them here in case you are looking for some last-minute cooking and eating ideas this weekend. These are a mix of Mexican, Southwestern, and Tex Mex foods. This small list will grow over time and doesn’t even include one of my favorite dishes, black bean and corn burritos, which I keep in the freezer for on-hand healthy eating. Ceviche also comes to mind, as does peach salsa with juicy sweet farmers’ market peaches…

In the meantime:

As much as I adore Mexican food, I actually made Indian food yesterday (chana masala) with some of my garbanzo beans in an unanticipated culinary irony; it was a special treat for my husband while I was out of town.

Olé.
