Cinco de Mayo Bento (96)

Mini Ground Beef Tacos, Mini Cheese Crisps, Spanish Rice, Salsa, Guacamole, Mango Chunks.

Today is Cinco de Mayo which in Arizona is a pretty big deal. Literally translated to “Fifth of May” Cinco de Mayo is a commemoration of the Mexican army’s victory over the French forces in the Battle of Puebla on this date in 1862.

It seems to be a bigger holiday in the US than in Mexico and I know our area is no exception. There have been local celebrations beginning this past weekend and they will culminate with a lot of Mexican food and cerveza well into the evening.

Our home will give a nod to the holiday with a Mexican dinner though there will be no mariachi’s playing or sombrero’s worn. 🙂

Today’s bento also shows respect for the holiday with mini tacos, mini cheese crisps with guacamole and salsa, spanish rice, and mango chunks.

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!
