The other night I invited my neighbor over for Cinco de Mayo. I was going to make Pulled Pork Tacos (SO EASY!) and all I asked in exchange was that she bring her blender for margaritas. She went one further and offered to bring her blender AND make a layered Mexican dip. Awesome.
The next day I threw the pork in the crock pot and later that afternoon began prepping taco toppings and making some Avocado Mango Tomato Salsa. My neighbor called me from the grocery store, where she was picking up stuff to make her layered dip, and asked if I needed anything.
“Nope, I’m good. See you soon.”
“Ok,” she replied.
An hour or so later, my Honey was home, so I called up the neighbors and told them they could come over whenever they were ready.
“You know Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow, right?”
“Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow. Today’s the 4th.”
Once it was established that this was a calendar error on my part, rather than my inability to count to 10 in Spanish, we both died laughing. Apparently I’m a moron. (Or a work/stay-at-home mom!) God love her though, she offered to hurry up, make her layered dip, and come on over. I assured her the food would all keep until the REAL Cinco de Mayo though and proceeded to make the traditional Cuatro de Mayo meal of frozen pizza.
The next day my neighbor came over with her dip, her blender, some other goodies, and we all ate happily ever after.
Below is the Avocado Mango Tomato Salsa I made. It’s tasty on chips, over a seared tuna salad, or straight out of the bowl.
Hope you enjoy the salsa. And if one of you could check on me now and again with a calendar update, that would be great, since my husband apparently doesn’t look at calendars either.
Any moron moments from your week you’d like to share with total strangers? If so, leave me a comment!
