Happy Hump Day and Cinco De Mayo (Recipes included)

First off, I just wanted to say thank you all SO MUCH for the wonderful birthday wishes you left for me yesterday.  I had an awesome birthday and have such awesome bloggy friends!  You guys are the BESTEST evah! :o)

In honor of Cinco De Mayo - I thought I would include some yummy recipes for your enjoyment today:

2 avocados
1/2 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil

Cut the avocados into halves. Remove the seeds, and scoop out the pulp into a small bowl. Use a fork to mash the avocado. Stir in lemon juice, onion, salt, and olive oil. Cover the bowl, and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

(From their website):  "The real trick to great guacamole is to use good avocados. Make sure your avocados are ripe and of the Haas variety! Serve this dip with corn chips, or an array of fresh vegetables."

Then, of course - if you're like me - you'll want to serve it with one (or several) of these:

Frozen Margaritas:
1 (6 ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate
6 fluid ounces tequila
2 fluid ounces triple sec

Fill blender with crushed ice. Pour in limeade concentrate, tequila and triple sec. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.
or maybe some of these (my new favorite drink):

2 leaves fresh mint
1 tablespoon simple syrup
2 cubes ice
1 1/4 fluid ounces rum
1 fluid ounce carbonated water
1 sprig fresh mint

In a cocktail glass, muddle (crush) mint leaves with simple syrup. Add ice and rum. Top with carbonated water. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.

Whatever is on your agenda today, I hope that you have a wonderul day and enjoy your Cinco De Mayo with recipes for tonights dinner! :o)  Have a wonderful day my peeps! 

Lots of love and hugs,
