Tip of the Week: Cinco De Mayo

This Week’s Featured Recipe

So once again I am wasting time on Pinterest, when I come across this delicious looking recipe for Oven Fajitas. I love fajitas, but frying them on the stovetop is just too messy.  Then it occurs to me, Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner, and the perfect reason to try my new Oven Fajita recipe!  I’ll serve them with whole wheat tortillas, Greek yogurt (a healthier choice than sour cream), lettuce, cheese, and lots of cilantro (my favorite).  I’ll probably make some brown rice with corn, black beans, and cumin mixed in as a side dish. See this week’s featured recipe to make your own Oven Fajitas.

If you are very crafty, Hannah, our Marketing Assistant, suggests getting the kids involved by making your own mini maracas. She thinks her 4-year-old would love this craft and it will help him to understand the holiday. But if you can’t handle the sound of mini maracas going non-stop in your house, you can make your own piñatas instead.

Did you know Cinco de Mayo is a much bigger holiday in America than it is in Mexico?  On May 5th, get the conversation started with your family by sharing these five fun facts about Cinco De Mayo at your family table.
