Cinco de Mayo Recap

Last night’s’ Cinco de Mayo festivities were SUPER fun!  We started off with this good stuff…hey, what’s Cinco de Mayo without a margarita?? :-D

We got this margarita machine off of our bridal registry! ;)  Hey, you can register for anything you want!

More festive decor…

I had a couple of these throughout the evening…the mango was my FAVE! :-P

Although as yummy as they were, I think I decided tonight that I like my margaritas better “on the rocks”!

We had LOTS of yummy eats!

Mal made her special fruit salsa with homemade cinnamon sugar pita chips.  SO GOOD!

Sarah & Andrea made homemade guacamole & salsa (the guac is AMAZING…I heard the salsa was too, but I wimped out because I heard it had quite a KICK!) :-P

Kate made a PHENOMENAL dish, Chilaquiles Casserole, which she got from Eating Well.  I’m definitely making this SOON!!!

I also did my share by breaking out a box of frozen taquitoes, poppin’ them in the oven and served them hot along with everything else! Hey, I made other goodies ;)

I ended up having a piece of Kate’s Chilaquiles casserole, LOTS ‘O GUAC w/ some baked scoops, and some fruit salsa with 2 pita chips. It’s a good thing that everyone was not hanging out near the food, because I’m sure my consumption would have been a lot heavier!  To square out my Mexican fiesta meal, I ended with a little big piece of margarita heaven. (I obviously was a little anxious to dig in…) ;)

The cake turned out so moist, with the perfect hint of margarita flavor…all paired with those candied pretzels on the bottom…Mmm Mmm Mmmmmm!  Salty + Sweet = The Perfect Pair :-D

It was a beautiful night so we were all able to sit outside and enjoy the weather with good food, good drinks, and awesome company!  :-D

For breakfast this morning, I actually woke up craving eggs, which rarely happens!  But I went with it and decided to make myself this lovely egg sandwich. :)

I nuked a 1/2 cup of Egg Beaters (with a dash of dried basil) and topped it with a nice big tomato slice and 1 slice of deli turkey.  I also added a smear of the Laughing Cow light Swiss cheese, all on an Arnold’s sandwich thin.  I LOVE these sandwich thins, they’re great!

YUMM! :-P

I’m headed to a conference today, so I’m not sure what’s on the agenda for lunch.  In case I get hungry mid-morning (which I’m sure I will because that always happens to me when I’m just sitting…) I threw together some fresh cantaloupe, strawberries, and raspberries.

Boy, it is a dreary day here this morning!  I want my sunshine back!! 8)

I’ll be back later this afternoon (hopefully) with our next summer wardrobe tip! :)
