Five on Friday!

Happy Cinco de Mayo Friday!

one. In honor of Cinco de Mayo I had to share my favorite guacamole recipe!

two. What’s that? You say you want another festive recipe? Okay, you got it! Here is my favorite Cinco de Mayo beverage — Cherry Beergaritas, to go alongside your guac!

three. Is this not the happiest welcome mat? I impulsively picked it up at Target last week and was convinced Matt was going to make me take it back as soon as he arrived home so I ripped off the tags right away! But to my surprise…he loved it!  

four. It’s Teacher Appreciation Week at the kiddos’ school. Each day is a different theme/gift and yesterday was “treat day.” I figured all of our teachers were maxed out on B&BW lotions and candy (although I thought last year’s candy gift was cute and clever) and sweets (see previous “Smart Cookie” gift). Anyway, we have some pretty incredible teachers so this year I thought I’d make each of them each dinner! I don’t know if this is a weird gift or an awesome gift but if someone gifted me a night off of cooking I’d be pretty pumped. Anyway, I tripled my favorite Baked Spaghetti recipe which yielded 6 meals plus some leftovers for us one night.

five. I realize this was a heavy food post, but I have to share one more recipe I made earlier this week because it is so dang good and it’s perfect for Cinco de Mayo tonight — Sesame Beef Tacos with quick pickled veggies and spicy crema!

    Everything looks so yummy! Target is killing it with their welcome mat selection lately. We need 2 at our house so I may need to make a Tar-jay run this weekend!
