Happy Cinco de Mayo!
In true “We-celebrate-EVERYTHING!” form, I made some crispy-cheesey-beafy-bean-fajita-dillas for the kids and Smoochie. Spicy white beans with garlic, cornbread (3/4 C cornmeal, 1 1/4 C flour, 1/2 C Olive Oil, 1/2 t salt, 3/4 C water, 3 T sugar, 3 T applesauce, 2 t baking powder, 400 degrees for 20 minutes), caramelized onions, a pile of chopped Romaine, chopped black olives and tomatoes…and the piece de resistance: fresh cilantro right from the garden! Mmm! Oh, and everything doused in hot sauce!
We dined al fresco,
While we enjoyed the sights…
Bajillions of these whirly gigs:
floated down around us like little helicopters. Speaking of things that fly…
Yesterday we parked on a closed-road near where a big air show was going on and watched the planes for a few minutes.
After we got home, we were in the garden (naturally) and six of the blue angel jets in formation flew RIGHT over the garden! Literally right above our heads, they were so close you could see the details of the planes. The Spy was thrilled! He is also thrilled that the hose has been reconnected (we still need to attach the sprinkler head) because he loves a good soaking and it has been HOT! 90 degrees today!
