A Clean Eating Cinco de Mayo Menu – Skinny Margarita Included!

A Clean Eating Cinco de Mayo Menu -Skinny Margarita included!

Cinco de Mayo is this weekend!  I was just planning my grocery shopping list when I realized I needed to plan something festive for Sunday so I’ve rounded up my favorite recipes for the occasion.  Go visit these fantastic food blogs for their recipes!  I’ve made and love all of these, with the exception of a new recipe I’m excited to try: the grain free “tortilla” chips.  I’m not so sure they’ll be anywhere near as good as the fried corn variety, but really I’m just looking for a vehicle for the guac.  Lots of guac :)

True Story: May 5th is Frank’s and my anniversary – Frank is my dog.  It was the last day of my freshman year of college and that night some friends were throwing a party to celebrate the start of summer and Cinco de Mayo.   I walked outside at one point and on the sidewalk saw a poor, mangy, scared looking dog desperately in need of rescuing.  I got close to him and he was a real sweetheart, just wanted to be loved on.  Those eyes were begging me, tugging at my heartstrings, and I just couldn’t leave him.  He was skin and bones, had ticks all over his body and was terrified of any of the guys that tried to pet him.  He just wanted me.  How could I say no?  I left the party early and took him home immediately and we have lived happily ever after since.  This Cinco de Mayo will mark our 9th anniversary!  We usually split a chicken taco and I give him extra kisses and thank him for being the best dog ever.

He really is the best dog!  Look at him in his festive Cinco de Mayo attire!  He loves dressing up.  Olé!  :)
