Cinco de Mayo; more of an American fiesta celebrating the battle of Puebla, Mexico, where the Mexicans defeated the French in 1862. It’s not so much of a big deal in Mexico; that’s reserved for September 16th, Mexican Independence Day, independence from Spanish rule.
But I digress. We are having a little party, and have a wonderful Mexican supermarket here in town that makes me feel like I’m back in Mexico.
And I didn’t even get to show you the deli. Delicious cooked salsas, guacamole, meats, fish. Enough to make a grown woman cry into her tequila.
Salud, y feliz Cinco de Mayo!
