With both Derby Day and Cinco de Mayo falling on the same weekend, we have a lot to celebrate. The Kentucky Derby takes 2 minutes to run, hardly enough time to down a mint julep. But Cinco de Mayo offers fun foods and festivities galore. Being Americans, we enjoy celebrating each other’s holidays. I like having an excuse to eat tacos on a day other than Taco Tuesday.
The Cake for Milk Lovers
Tom, Lisa and the girls invited me to take part in making a Tres Leches Cake, the yummy South of the Border delicacy that boasts three different milks. Since the girls provided plenty of help, I just watched the mixing and baking. I also gave advice and helped lick the spoons afterwards. But mostly I just laughed at the antics of my fun-loving family, as you can see in the photos below.
