Cinco de Mayo




I have a meeting tonight, and thought I'd make something festive to take along since I won't be able to go out for margaritas. I modified Krissa's Rum Cake recipe, using an orange cake mix, cheesecake jello pudding mix & Malibu rum. If it tastes good, I'll tell you all about it tomorrow. If it's awful, you'll never hear about it again...



What are you doing to celebrate Cinco de Mayo?

The Child requested soft tacos tonight for dinner; I'd forgotten it was Cinco de Mayo until just now.

Wow, I am a party animal.

(I haven't forgotten to send the book to you - I plan to get it out to you today!)

Thanks for reminding me. I'm glad I had cottage cheese for lunch because it's salsa, chips and Corona tonight. The cake looks and sounds delicious.

No big celebrations here -- although a friend suggested I find a very tiny sombrero for our prairie dog to wear...

I think I'm going to pay some bills and do some laundry. Cause I'm just so exciting like that.

I drove past three wonderful Mexican restaurants on my way home from work, wished I could go in all three of them, admired the festive balloons and the signs talking about mariachi bands and margaritas.

Instead, drove home to starving k ids, starving cats, starving dogs, and nothing to eat. Oh, and I'm out of wine.

Somebody shoot me.

I thought if I waited until seis de mayo I would have something exciting to add. Didn't quite turn out that way.

I didn't do anything for Cinco De Mayo but this Rum cakes looks so amazing I am practically licking the screen. OH MY GOSH! WOW! You are so multi talented. It's sort of ridiculous...
