I love a fiesta. Especially on Cinco de Mayo. My dear friend Suz knows that I could eat Mexican food every day, and she says she cannot eat it without thinking of me! Tex-Mex, Southwestern... I love it. The seasoned meats and the spicy salsa... crispy chips laden with salt... and you could probably talk me into a margarita pretty easily. Anything.... except Flan! (It just seems too bouncy for me to even try it!) Even my kitchen celebrates our love of this yummy food...
But this year finds me with no fiesta... no salty chips dipped in chilled salsa... and certainly no margarita! No... I'm on a diet. One more day in this ten-day round... and I just couldn't cheat. I feel in control and on the right path. So... the closest I got to celebrating Cinco de Mayo was admiring my new dessert plates... and indulging in a piece of pepper jack cheese. Ummm... Ole? Hmmm... not quite!
(But don't feel too bad for me... I'm definitely celebrating Ocho de Mayo!!)
