Sneak Peek

So my roommate and I are having a Cinco de Mayo/End of the Semester party tomorrow (cue excitement). I decided to make actual Mexican dishes (petit-sized) and other goodies. Anyways, I have started making some of the treats since I won't have that much time tomorrow--being the last day of classes and all.

Here is a preview of what will be completed and served tomorrow.

But before that I also wanted to explain that Cinco de Mayo in the US and in Mexico is a completely different holiday. The only "holiday" detail I can remember about Cinco en Mexico is not having classes that day. Other than that, its just another ordinary day.

For all of you who don't know why the holiday takes place, it is done to commemorate the victory of the Mexican army over the French in Puebla (I guess maybe if I go to puebla on the fifth of May I might encounter a more similar holiday celebration).

Also, I will be posting the finished product and recipes at the end of the week (probably), so stay tuned!
