happy cinco de mayo!

Yep, those are jackfruit carnitas taco-deliverers of spicy delish! This is all part of my grand master plan to celebrate all and every holiday that means I get to eat party food on a monday night. And thank you Melisser for the recipe!

Oh, and it really is cause for celebration, since I got these wonderful things in the mail a few days ago - JCD's More Than Twigs & Berries zine, which is full of recipes I can't wait to try out, like soup with homemade noodles, nanaimo bars and peanut butter banana muffins! And my first postcard in the ppk mail-art swap came! (thanks Pixel!)

I love getting things in the mail... in fact so much that my local postage-guy (who curiously works every single day, all day) seems more than a little amused every time I walk up to the counter with yet more mysterious and brightly-stickered/doodled packages and letters... postage is like a treasure system, really.

(oh, and the zine is crinkled like that cause I've already cooked with it :)

Those tacos look great! I'll have to check out that recipe again. I feel bad I didn't celebrate today, being a Texan, but I don't need an excuse to eat Mexican food.

Have fun with the new cookzine. I hope you make nanaimo bars first!

I love getting mail, too, but I don't get nearly enough. Still, when I get a bank statement I do a little happy dance!

I'm with you - let's use all of the mid-week holidays as an excuse to celebrate and eat good food! Keep me updated on your zine - I definitely enjoyed trying some of the indian food that you posted about.

After this, I think I'm going to celebrate Siete de Mayo tonight. It looks heavenly. I only get bills in the mail :-(

Is it weird that these tacos look so appealing that I'd like to get naked and smear them all over my body? =p jk well that would be dumb, but yeah.. they look great!

Enjoy your mail and zine! I love getting letters and packages and cards. Treasure system... you put it well =)
