Eight Cinco de Mayo Favorites

For once in my blogging life, I'm early to a food event!

Is it ambition?
Awesome planning?
Superb organizational skills?
Am I at the top of my game?

No.  No.  No.  And a big fat no.

What this is is the oldest blogging trick in the book.  When all else fails, turn to the trusty round-up!

There's a huge audit coming up at work and because of it my life no longer belongs to me.

I have nothing to write about and no--I mean zip, zilch, nada--motivation to sift through pictures.  And for sure no motivation to resize, crop, or edit anything.

Instead, I'd so much rather stuff myself with whatever chocolate Easter candy remains and have you enjoy some of my favorite Mexican (and Mexican-inspired) dishes.

See Ya in the Gumbo # 130 {potluck}


*~*~* 
It's Gumbo time!
*~*~*

My great grandpa said See ya in the gumbo! 
instead of "good-bye."
It means see ya out there in the mix.

Gumbo is a mix of various ingredients.  
And no two people make it the same way.
To "make a gumbo" means much more than cooking.  When someone says "I'm making a gumbo," it means family and friends are invited.

I invite you to join this POTLUCK PARTY every Sunday night.
Bring whatever mix of ingredients you'd like.
