Cinco de Mayo and Fish Tacos

What a great weekend! I feel like I say that every Monday…..hehe

Saturday we finished up some trim painting and I ran to get some milk.  I spent $70!  Ga-lore that’s a lot of money.  I got 2 gallons milk, 3 quarts yogurt, 1 cream, 3 dozen eggs, and homemade soap for my honey.  No we don’t use all this in a week…..this is for 2 weeks.  The farmer only comes to Sugar Land every other week, so we need to do some stocking up.


My friend Sarah from Iowa was here in Houston for work.  I went out for dinner with her last Thursday and caught up on the things in our lives. (I haven’t seen her since my wedding in July) Her birthday was yesterday and her fiancé came to Houston Friday night to visit her.  We met them early afternoon in midtown at Pubfiction so we could catch the Kentucky Derby and celebrate cinco de mayo. 


The race was exciting and the weather was perfect.  After the Kentucky Derby, we went to Cyclone Anaya’s to “sample” their margaritas and enjoy some grub.  We had sooooo much fun at dinner.  The food was delicious, the margaritas plentiful, and the music was bumpin’.   


After we filled our tummies, we went to Celtic Garden and got our grove thang’ on to this amazing DJ.  Yes, this girl was dancin’! 


We got home just after 10:00 and stood outside for awhile and shot-the-shit with the neighbors. 

Sunday morning we went to Lowe’s (we are regulars) and got groceries.  I felt like I had ate enough tortilla chips and salsa the night before (Yikes!), so I thought eating a “lighter” lunch was appropriate. 


 I wanted to make something mexicany, so I decided we would go for fish tacos.  What a good decision! We got some red snapper and I made some mango salsa that was DA-BOMB!  So easy too!  Dice some mango, add a little bit of diced pineapple, some red onion, cilantro, lime juice, and a pinch of salt.  Holy guacamole (we had that too) it was good!


 Sarah joined us for dinner and we enjoyed fish tacos, black beans, and grilled corn. 


Don’t forget a monster cookie and a glass of wine for dessert.  I better get my crap back together this week….cause I had too much fun and boy am I tired.  AND, don’t forget it’s teacher appreciation week!

Question: Did you celebrate cinco de mayo?

Friday Night: Grilled pork chop, zucchini, and acorn squash. 


Saturday Breakfast: Scrambled eggs w/ sautéed veggies and a banana with almond butter and a glass of raw milk.  I woke up hungry 🙂


Saturday Lunch: Chicken, mushroom, broccoli, and potato.  This is what I eat for lunch EVERY day, minus the mushrooms.  I had an extra lunch left over from the week since I ate enough during the school day.  (Sra. Wordehoff let the kids have a food day)
