I’m not one to shy away from a fully stocked bar cart. I mean check out my growing cocktail section. But this time around I thought it would be fun to take those items typically found on the bar cart and create a Cinco de Mayo chips and salsa bar cart. Especially perfect since the holiday falls on a Thursday…I’m thinking this is just the kind of bar cart y’all can get your boss to sign off on 😉
You read that right 🙂 I told you I’m not missing out on Cinco de Mayo again this year! With all this recipe testing I think I’ve celebrated the holiday ten times over (and after this one, ten pounds over..hehe). These margarita cookies don’t disappoint and with the vibrant tequila lime glaze they are ADDICTING! Break out the tequila and get to baking.
It’s corn-on-the-cob season y’all! I always get so excited when I start to see the fresh corn arriving at the grocery stores. Nothing says summer and pool parties quite like a beautifully charred piece of corn right off the grill (of course slathered in butter too). Or, my new favorite, this Mexican Street Corn recipe. The hubs has already requested this twice since I made it the first time a few weeks back – get on it! With all of this corn happening in our lives, these corn napkins are the perfect way to roll your silverware and dress up your table.
Another weekend deserves another cocktail don’t you think? Maybe it’s because I’ve had summer and Cinco de Mayo on the brain but I’ve been in a margarita mood lately. And so, per usual, I share my addiction with you all 🙂 I give you my Mango Margarita – it’s an absolute must!
Margarita glasses, corn on the cob napkins, tequila place cards? Sounds like a fun Cinco de Mayo table setting to me! 🙂 In all honesty I think I’m just trying to make up for years of missed Cinco de Mayo celebrations. So many margarita filled days flew by without me – not cool. This year I am prepared! With my Mexican Street Corn and this fun table setting it’s bound to be a festive day that includes one heck of a siesta.
Cinco de Mayo is less than a month away! Truth be told, I feel like this holiday always sort of sneaks up on me and I inevitably wind up missing my perfectly good excuse to drown myself in chips and queso and fish bowl margaritas. Not this year y’all! I have so many fun Cinco de Mayo posts coming your way. To kick it all off we’re starting with my Mexican Street Corn. This is not only a fun Cinco de Mayo side dish but the perfect side kick to your grilled steaks and burgers.
