Hola amigo y amiga! Como esta? Mi gusto!
And that’s all I can say. Well, I know my numbers and colors in Spanish thanks to the Williams Air Force Base Elementary School in Arizona circa 1975. I used to think our Spanish classes were de rigeur because we were going to school on a military base but now I’m thinking it must have been our southwestern locale.
Anyhoo, here’s my weekly roundup of Links I Love #39, which you should check out if you want to be prepared for Cinco De Mayo, which is fast approaching, which is next Tuesday, May 5.
Don’t worry about indulging on the big day. Here are Scientific Reasons to Drink More Tequila.
Moving on from Cinco de Mayo, I just signed up for emails from the Homesick Texan. I’ve had two really great recipes from her in recent weeks thanks to a new coworker who is fun and young and from Texas. I really like her, I think she’s one of my soul sisters. If she was 20 years older or I was 20 years younger we would totally be besties. Speaking of middle-aged women being friends with 20-somethings, have you seen that new show Younger? I’m loving it and trying to catch the new episodes as soon as they come out on Hulu Plus, because that’s the only way I watch tv these days, well Hulu Plus and Netflix, because I’m no longer cable’s biatch. I can’t believe we paid for cable for so long. Loving life without it. But I digress yet again, back to the Homesick Texan.
My friend made these Spicy Chocolate Pecan Cookies, which totally reminded me of my Chocolate Cinnamon Fantasy Cookies only spicier. And, last weekend my boss had a barbecue and my new coworker brought pimento cheese, which she doctored with cilantro, which is totally something I would do. That was the best cheese dip I’ve had in years, so, so, so good. I had to be dragged away from the bowl, kidding, sort of.
Your turn! Scroll down and share with us in the comments your favorite dishes to make for Cinco de Mayo! Have you had pimento cheese?
