Cinco de Mayo: Sneak Peak

Tequila, lime, cilantro, jalapeños…need I say more? Today has been filled with lots of exercising, errand running and prepping for tomorrow’s Cinco de Mayo/Graduation Fiesta. The menu is full of Mexican must-haves like homemade guacamole, tacos, etc. but I’m also whipping up a Pineapple Jalapeño Salsa to top grilled chicken (marinaded overnight in juice from oranges, lemons and limes with garlic), a Quinoa Black Bean and Grilled Corn Salad, as well as Tequila Lime Shrimp (pictured below). Lots of delicious dishes in the works, our kitchen smells way too good right now.

I’m pooped from an early three miles and a Piloxing class (pilates + boxing, a very interesting combo) so will be hitting the sack shortly for all of tomorrow’s festivities. I can already tell that my glutes and quads are not going to be happy with me in the morning. Phew!
Any fun Cinco de Mayo plans? What’s your favorite Mexican dish?

Sprinkled with Love,
Lauren
