I love this quote. Great food should be part of every family's traditions and when we gather together and enjoy a meal, it should feel like a party, a celebration. Working on the frontlines of the obesity epidemic, I love to power up with great food every chance I can get, which is one reason why the first weekend in May is so much fun.
The first Saturday in May is the Kentucky Derby, known as the Fastest 2 Minutes in Sports. This Saturday in Louisville, Kentucky is the giant party known for fast horses, beautiful hats, great food and drinks. Sunday is Cinco de Mayo, a holiday I love to celebrate because it is a great reason to make fresh guacamole and salsa. Cinco de Mayo – or the fifth of May – commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). While Cinco de Mayo is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, it is a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage in the United States.
