Drinko, I Mean Cinco de Mayo...

Happy Monday Everybody! How was your weekend? I had a festive one. As you ladies and gents already know, it was Cinco de Mayo (LOL aka Drinko de Mayo) Saturday. So I went to a popular Mexican restaurant here in New Orleans called Superior Grill on St. Charles Avenue. Got there before the stampede. By the time we ordered, all the tables were filled. HaHa I had Tortillas & Salsa, Margaritas, Barq's Root Beer, and Chicken & Steak Fajitas. Mmm Mmm! I love Mexican food. Did you guys go out? Do you like Mexican food? What's your favorite?

My mom's birthday was last weekend, so I also included a pic of her cake from Swiss Confectionery. Very simple, but very good this year (yellow & white). Last year, I took her to Las Vegas for her birthday and had Freed's Bakery of Las Vegas make her a cake. Adorable! If you're in Vegas and need a cake delivered to your hotel room (we stayed at The Venetian) they will do it and their cakes taste SO GOOD! Ok, talk to you guys tomorrow! :)

I didn't get a chance to partake in the cinco de mayo festivities this year, though I really could've gone for a margarita on the patio!
That cake is so amazing- the silver bow is especially incredible.

Sincerely,

We didn't celebrate Cinco de Mayo ... We ate steak instead. That isn't very Cinco de Mayo-ish, is it? Ha.

Hi Kim! I love those chips photos! I love Mexican food but didn't go out this weekend to my favorite Oaxacan place because I figured it'd be too crowded. Maybe this weekend!

Welcome back, Kim! It's good to have respite from blogging because it can be so overwhelming at times. It's a full time hobby! What a lovely thing to do for your mom. One day, I'd love to try authentic Mexican cuisine, not the fakeroo ones we get here in the UK.

Cara said...

Ohhh,everything looks delicious! Last time I was in New Orleans we ate there and had such a great meal. Your Mom's birthday cakes are so lovely!!
