Old MacDonald had a Fiesta

Cinco de Mayo is a great holiday, not because I understand any of the history or significance behind it, but it has become a perfect excuse for my personal overindulge in really great Mexican cuisine. Taco, beans, Oh my! The festivities began at lunch. I went with the kids to go visit Jon and we had $1 dollar tacos at this authentic (oh so delicious) little taco stand. That night for dinner I made homemade black beans, enchiladas, and virgin margaritas. I know I made it so I’m not supposed to say this, but it was seriously delicious. Ryder got his first taste of black beans, which he enjoyed.

While getting the table set Jon found a radio station online that was playing Mexican-esque (at the very least the words were Spanish) music. One of the songs that was playing kept having yells Ayayyayya! Jon and I were also doing our best yell, Lola joined in and she yelled out E-I-E-I-O. Hahaha she gets effort points at the very least.


  1. That sounds like so much fun. You make me jealous that I didn't do anything. By mistake I made a Mexican Lasagna and it was disgusting :) Ryan said, oh, fun, you made a Mexican meal for Cinco de Mayo... I wish I could have taken the credit, but I did by default. That is so cute about the Ayayyayya and then Lola yelling in EiEio. That's adorable.
    Glad you have a blog! About time you got on board :)
