0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

Tonight my son and his date will be attending the Appoquinimink Senior High School Prom and he will be staying out much later than he ever has. You know that I won’t get much sleep until he walks back in the door, I’ll be praying that they all have a safe and wonderful time!  

Monday is Cinco de Mayo, which isn’t a major holiday in Mexico; but here in America, it’s an excuse to over indulge in Mexican food and to drink lots of beer.  So in honor of this holiday, today’s Friday’s Foodie Feature is an easy recipe for Ground Turkey and Bean Burritos.

    Feels like I had my prom just yesterday (and yes, my mom and dad waited up for me, lol). Here in the Southwest Cinco de Mayo is a huge Mexican food fest and while I love to gorge on it all, my all time faves are tacos. Have a fabulous weekend (and hope your son has a great prom).

      He got home a little after 3 so it was took bad, he said all of the after parties were cancelled which was a good thing for me…for him not so much! I think I could eat Mexican Food everyday…unfortunately the consequences wouldn’t be desirable! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
