To end my Mexican recipe week, I decided to invite a few friends over to try out some of my favorite dishes! It ended up being quite the feast; a Cinco de Mayo kinda feast!
I spent a few days making paper flowers, a piñata and some more recipes. Made a raglan taco shirt for Liam and found a watermelon tank top for Logan… although I am clearly not a fan of tank tops for my boys! The best part: fake mustaches. The boys looked hilarious wearing them… although, once again, I’m not a fan of mustaches, and I hope they never get a real one when they grow up!!!
So we drank Corona’s, ate tacos, quesadillas and some tortillas. And just before we ate way to much guacamole and homemade salsa my friend Eric had made. For dessert we had some delicious churros with dulce de leche dip. Let’s just say that by the time we were done with the churros we looked like six full fake Mexicans. But there was still a surprise for the kids : a candy filled piñata.
I should have bought the damn thing… I made it at 11 pm the day before, with box/carton and about 20$ worth of duct tape; which made it indestructible! The kids got tired of hitting my cow/donkey with the plastic baseball bat, so Brian had some fun breaking it open with a golf club! Then the kids had a few tears because of who got what, but I guess it’s all part of the fun of having a piñata, and in the end they were all pretty happy to eat some candy although they were already so full!
I think I will celebrate Cinco de Mayo for years to come. All the colors and the amazing food are perfect to get me in the summer spirit! Let’s just hope that next year we’ll get to do it outside, with a bit more sun and wayyy less rain/water!
