Party Time | Cinco de Mayo

Hola Babes! In anticipation of Cinco de Mayo, I’ve got some festive fiesta inspiration for you!

But first, a little history lesson.

Cinco de Mayo is a day to pay tribute to the Mexican army’s improbable victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. The French army was well-equipped, had twice the man power, and had not been defeated in almost 50 years, but under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín, 4,000 Mexican soldiers defeated the French forces. As Time magazine remarked, “The Puebla victory came to symbolize unity and pride for what seemed like a Mexican David defeating a French Goliath.” Mexico did remain occupied by the French a year later, but the victory at Puebla helped establish a much-needed sense of national unity and patriotism.

In America today, due to typical over-commercialization and general stupidity, Cinco de Mayo is an excuse to buy (racist) fake mustaches from the party store and get bombed on tequila. I try to keep the core spirit of any holiday in mind when celebrating, so for Cinco de Mayo, I’ll be cooking up some authentic Mexican recipes and enjoying the sunshine with friends. No appropriation or inebriation for this babe.

If you’re interested in celebrando, here’s a look at some Cinco de Mayo food & fun:

Margarita | Barbacoa | Corn | Guacamole | Sorbet | Agua Fresca

Table | Gilded Piñata | Streamers | Planters | Wall Hanging | Cactus Piñata | Flowers

How will you be celebrating Cinco de Mayo?

Who’s Hungry | Alaskan Eats

On this day in 1867, Secretary of State William H. Seward spent 7.2 million dollars on the purchase of Alaska from Russia. At the time, some Americans criticized this purchase, calling it “Seward’s folly”. It wasn’t until major discoveries of gold were made in the 1890’s that Alaska was seen as a valuable acquisition. Today, we know it was the right move.

To celebrate this great land that I now call home, today’s Who’s Hungry is all Alaskan!

  1. Sourdough Bread from Grit
  2. Reindeer Hot Dogs from Travel and Leisure
  3. King Crab Eggs Benedict from Confections of a Foodie Bride
  4. Slammin’ Alaska Salmon Burgers with Garlic Dill Aioli from Allergy Free Alaska
  5. Tequila-Lime Halibut Tacos with Red Cabbage Slaw from Use Real Butter
  6. Baked Alaska from Food Network

What are your favorite Alaskan eats?
