Cinco de Mayo!


"Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations."

Our homemade lower sodium and lower fat celebratory Cinco de Mayo dinner of burritos and tacos with refried beans! Cost effective too, all for less than two dollars a serving!
 
 
The above picture might be confusing to some, but what it actually is it is that Hubby removed the garden below our front of the house gardenia bush weeks ago, including the Mexican petunias that are quite hardy and grow anywhere and everywhere! Now this was weeks ago and they were thought to be all gone, and today... do you see it, coincidently on Cinco de Mayo, that little purple flower is... a MEXICAN PETUNIA!
On Cinco de Mayo! That must mean something, but what?????

Any-who, you all enjoy your celebrations too!
