The 5th of May
...also known as glorious Cinco de Mayo! Ok- not quite as glorious in Berlin. No Coronas, somberos, or crazy Mexicans BUT we did cook some pretty kick-ass Mexican food. Just perchance my German penpal was available to come over today and we have been wanting to cook her some Mexican food for a while. Burritos with tortillas from home, chili powder in everything, gaucamole with the crazy Israeli avocados, and home-made salsa with pineapple- Lecker! (By the way parents, out of refried beans and tortillas- hint hint). Kerstin was a little suspicious of the refried beans (and who wouldn't be if you hadn't been raised with them), but she liked everything, even our first attempt at salsa. Arriba!
