Is it SERIOUSLY May 1st? And are we SERIOUSLY getting a major cold front through most of the country tomorrow?
Let’s forget about the cold winds, rain and snow and sweaters we’ll need in a few hours. Let’s plan for a warm-weather day with some Cinco de Mayo recipes!
We love Tex-Mex and true Mexican flavors in our family; Taco Tuesday is a regular feature in my menu planning and the Kidlets look forward to that meal more than any other each week. In fact, Tex-Mex inspired recipes make up the largest flavor sub-group in my list of easy family-friendly dinner ideas. So, yeah, it wasn’t hard to find inspiration within my own archives for this recipe round-up , and a quick search of some of my favorite food bloggers revealed other yummy looking recipes — all perfect for a Cinco de Mayo Fiesta!
