It is not Mexican Independence Day, you know. Cinco de Mayo is the celebration of a victory in a great battle, but not against the Spanish. It was a battle in which the outnumbered Mexicans beat the French. Still, it is a great excuse to drink cerveza and eat Mexican food.
Our fun team at work had a small Cinco de Mayo party today. We had Coronas with lime, chips, 8 different salsas, cheese sauce, guacamole, 7 layer dip, sangria, and non-alcoholic beverages. It was great fun for the group - a good pick-me-up in the middle of the afternoon (unless you drank 2 beers like me and would actually like a nap now). We also had a pinata that we attempted to whack open with a stick. The poor ass was beheaded, but no candy fell out. We took care of that problem from the ground. Tonight, Bill and I will continue the theme with a burrito dinner.
Hope you all have a wonderful Cinco de Mayo, too!!!!!!!
