Cinco de Mayo...OLE'

Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that celebrates Mexico defeating the French in the battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Now one would expect this to be celebrated primarily in Mexico. But those who believe that are wrong, wrong wrong. The fact of the matter is this is celebrated more in the United States than in Mexico, in Mexico it is really only celebrated in the state of Puebla.

Every year my work has an unofficial contest. Cinco de Mustache. The men in the office grow out their facial hair for probably 2-3 weeks. Then they skillfully shave it into the grossest mustache they can think of. I can't even describe it other than yuck! I will try to get some pics today and post them later.

I am not excluded in the celebrating. Last night I fixed chicken enchiladas, rice, and beans for dinner to help kick off the festivities. Along with this beauty

That is a chocolate fudge cake with a raspberry cream cheese filling and, frosted with a chocolate frosting and a raspberry topping. It was delicious! I am sure you could get a marriage proposal by serving this cake. :)

I hope everyone has a Feliz dia de Cinco de Mayo!!!
