Happy Cinco de Mayo and Happy Birthday to my husband! Today Forbes is 30. And this is a big deal! Birthdays in general are a big deal in our house, but any that end in 5 or 0 are especially important. For Forbes' 30th we are planning a really fun weekend. Therefore today is a little more low-key. Plus we are still in full party-prep mode and that doesn't leave much time for celebrating.
Despite our weekend plans and the ongoing preparations I have managed to salvage a pretty sweet birthday for Forbes. Our morning began with coffee and bagels from our favorite shop in town, followed by a trip to the Verizon store to get him a birthday present. He loves his new iPhone! Forbes had to work for a few hours today but now we are preparing for a fun Mexican dinner out. Originally I planned to cook enchiladas and enjoy dinner at home. However, I have been in the kitchen all day and I am ready for a break.
If you are indeed planning to cook a Mexican feast tonight or tomorrow to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, I recommend these:
The Moab or The Louisiana
Sweet Potato Quesadillas
The enchiladas and quesadillas are so quick to make you could start now and have dinner on the table in 30 minutes!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
