Cinco de Cinco

taco time

What are you up to this weekend!?  I really really hope your answer was tacos.

It’s the first weekend of May and I can feel my insides tingling with thoughts of summer.  To celebrate, I’m having an all-taco weekend.  Yea… that’s totally a thing.  We’re grown.  We can taco when we want.  Taco = verb.

What else is in your weekend?  Cold beer and short shorts!?  Heck yes!  Let’s be friends for life.  Yea… it’s that easy.

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos topped with super lime cabbage slaw.  I love the base flavor of beans combined with sweet and tender potatoes.  Tart and crunchy slaw makes these tacos irresistible.  Good living!

Kale Coconut and White Bean Tostadas.  Fancy/Not fancy/Stayin’ classy.

ps.  Radishes always.

Get your guacamole on!

I recently made this Goat Cheese and Roasted Corn Guacamole.  ‘Tis the season (and thank heavens it is!).

Should we even talk about Fried Guacamole?  Oh man.  This is so good it’s almost wrong.

Let there be tequila (in teacups) (because we’re classy) (and we don’t own shot glasses).  I think tequila should always be paired with ice, salt, and loads of citrus.  These links make for good weekending.

What’s Gaby’s Cooking has gorgeous Sunburnt Margaritas.

Love and Cupcakes made Rhubarb Mezcalaritas.

HonestlyYum made gorgeous Micheladas.  I means…

  2. Love the Jesus and Mary plates, lol! My daughter has some of the same plates and mugs as well, and her friends always get a kick out of her serving food on them :) Happy Cinco de Mayo to you!

  3. The sun is out in Seattle and its going to be hot! Well probably not LA hot, but good enough for tacos, cold beer and short shorts!

  4. It wasn’t a taco but I did just start the weekend at the Loteria Grill! That being said, almost anything can be enhanced by folding it in a delicious tortilla and adding salsa…happy cinco!

  5. Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos AND the Kale Coconut….thanks for the reminders on those. And Taco as a verb – love it.

    Hope you have a great weekend getting your taco (and margarita) on!
