Cinco De Mayo

One by one the restaurant patios are opening, ready for long family dinners that take a cue from the Mexican culture that brings us Cinco De Mayo. I know I could also stand to take a few pointers from the Spaniards, who introduced us to the “siesta”, a concept that most Americans (myself included) can only dream about.

Instead of hurrying through the day just to make it to a microwavable dinner that I will eat in front of the television, this year I plan on embracing the slowness of other cultures.

This means enjoying their signature dinners that start late and last long. Here is the margarita that I will be sipping leisurely, preferably while talking with friends and family over a huge spread that I took my time preparing.
