Happy Cinco de Mayo

Tonight I made a Cinco de Mayo meal for my family. Brandon didn't have golf tonight, so we actually got to sit at the table together - Emily was relieved to not be the only child dining with mom and dad. I'm afraid she'll get plenty of this in the next 4 years!! :-)

I stopped by El Ranchito and picked up fresh Pico de gallo, and then ran over to Food Pavillion for their fresh tortilla chips.

Nothing fancy for the main dish. I grew up with this recipe of my mom's and my family loves it, Spanish Rice. It has hamburger in it AND bacon sprinkled on top with cheese. It's awesome leftover too! Heated up some refried beans (from the can - worked until 4:30 so no time for homemade) and broiled some cheese on top.

I was going to take a picture of the family dining, but Emily came down from dinner directly out of the shower and she had a big purple towel wrapped around her head - I was warned NOT to take a picture . I guess I just didn't feel daring enough tonight to try it! So instead, you get a picture of the meal before the family dove in - not very decorated or fancy, I was going to make virgin margaritas - but everyone wanted milk instead - how boring!!

Hope you enjoyed a beautiful October day?!?!?!

We do the El Ranchito/Grocery store combo for pico and chips too!!! We thought we were the only picky ones, but I guess we are in good company.

Looks good! I came home and whipped up some tacos for my guys. It is nice to have another country's holiday give me a dinner idea. The 'what should I make?' gets to me.
