OK, so I don’t usually celebrate Cinco de Mayo to this extent… if at all… but with so many reasons to bring people together , why not go all out? This gathering was initially intended to have friends over to celebrate a couple of birthdays, make Chinese food and teach them all my new dumpling making skills; but since May 5th was the scheduled date it just seemed unfitting to not have Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo! So I rounded up a few of my favorite Mexican recipes (from my mom, of course) and with a little help it all came together perfectly.

Here’s what was on the menu:

  • Cactus Salad– Prepared by my dear friend, Juan Carlos. Gracias!

Thanks again  to everyone who helped pull this together. Happy birthday to my dear friends and Happy Cinco de Mayo!
