Cinco de Mayo Weekend

Honestly, I don’t understand why people in the United States celebrate Cinco de Mayo. (We actually are going to a celebration on Tuesday night.) 🙂 In college, we had a lot of students from Puebla – so it kinda made more sense then.  Oh well, any excuse to celebrate, right?

Anyway, I decided that this weekend we would eat chips and salsa in honor of the Battle of Puebla.  (Any excuse to eat chips and salsa, right?)  Most of the time a nice cold Diet Coke will fit the bill, but I thought this called for a little something extra!  So I bought these glasses for a couple of bucks – for some reason it seems more fun to drink out of a margarita glass than a regular ol’ cup.  🙂  That’s kinda weird too, huh?

Here is how I made the drinks:
6 lemons – juiced
1 pound strawberries
1/2 cup splenda (or sugar)
Bunch of ice

Add all ingredients to blender and blend away. Perfectly refreshing on a lovely May afternoon! Hope you had a great weekend too!

    I think you are right, any excuse to celebrate 🙂 The Spanish teacher at LJHS takes her students to Denver to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. The strawberry slush looks delicious!
