cinco de mayo

hola!  and happy cinco de mayo.  not only is it cinco de mayo - official holiday of margaritas & guac - but it's also our 6 month mark.  exactly 6 months from today craig and i will be saying "i do"!  very exciting : )

in the spirit of celebration, i thought i'd share my super easy "guacamole" recipe.  it's not really mexican guac in the traditional sense - you'll see why.  but it's delicious and so simple to prepare.  we eat it on chicken, turkey burgers, vegetarian chili, fish, you name it.

1 avocado
1 tsp chopped garlic
1-2 tsp grated parmesan (i know it's not mexican, but it makes it taste good)

scoop avocado into a bowl.  add in garlic & parm.  mash & mix.  that's it.  you'll love it.  for a bonus, add a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime.

how about an easy margarita recipe, just as a bonus?

1 bottle skinnygirl margarita
pour 4 oz over ice.

so, happy cinco de mayo!  and don't forget to enter the shabby apple dress giveaway.  you have until next wednesday to enter!
