Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo and in H's Spanish class they had a party. My kids have learned Do Not Raise Your Hand for the complicated contributions! Let me provide chips and salsa! It's not that I don't enjoy cooking - obviously I do. It's just having that one extra thing to think about on a school day that throws me. So H's assignment was a centerpiece and a fruit salad. I have some great table linens from Mexico so the centerpiece was easy. I filled a Mason jar with colorful candy and put some silk flowers in it - it actually turned out quite cute and apparently the candy was very popular. Go figure.
For the fruit I prepared it the way they serve it for breakfast down in the Yucatan. Mango, watermelon, grapes and bananas, drizzled with yogurt and then sprinkled with granola. I used the Wildwood Soyogurt plain flavor and mixed in some agave nectar. She said the kids in her group pretty much finished off the fruit so I guess it a success.
We attended a fundraiser dinner last night - not many vegan options - essentially some sauteed peppers on a tortilla with salsa but it was fun!
