Cinco! Cinco! Cinco!

Happy Cinco de Mayo, friends! Being a Polish Canadian, I have as much business celebrating this holiday as a t-rex does taking selfies, but I love to join in on the fun regardless. I love Mexican food and latin music and that's reason enough for me!

Today we plan on celebrating by popping across the border to be one country closer to the real festivities. (Actually, it's to pick up a few things at our mailbox and Target but tomato, tomahto.) And while we're there we will be appropriately dining at Qdoba. Or Chipotle. Or anywhere that will sell us burritos.

Last year, we made the ultimate Mexican-themed dinner with quesadillas, chips & guacamole, coronas, and even a little bit of tequila. In all honesty, the tequila wasn't consumed, but it was there for appearances.

So to kick start the party, I have rounded up some themed favourites.
