Cinco de Mayo Recap

by Courtney on May 6, 2010

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!


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! :)

your fruit bowl looks SO good. I think I could eat raspberries ALL day long.
