Cinco de Mayo Recipe Roundup

Today marks two very important events.

The day that I complete my first year of graduate school (with all my hair intact and not pulled out) AND Cinco de Mayo. Perfect timing, too, because after work, the girls and I are getting a drink. Or a pitcher. We will split it, don’t worry.

So here’s a little recipe roundup for you guys just in case your celebration is tonight and you still need some ideas and inspiration.
