Happy CInco de Mayo!

Yeah, Cinco de Mayo isn't a big deal in Mexico, just like corned beef and cabbage isn't a big deal in Ireland, but it gives us something nice to celebrate on a COLD AND RAINY May day, and that's what Mr. L and I are going to do.

We had errands to run yesterday, so we stopped at the grocery store and bought everything we need (well, almost) for a nice celebration. The avocados (which are in short supply this year) were hard as rocks, so we passed them by, but we got the beef, tortillas, taco sauce, chilies, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and refried beans. He does the cooking, and I do the chopping, but first ... a Margarita with salt-rimmed glasses.

What other not-so-big holidays do you celebrate?
