Care to Play Some Food Tag?

Elaine from California Living, one of my cyberfriends from French Fridays with Dorie, tagged me in a game of food holiday tag. Elaine’s blog is delightful. She shares my interests in cooking and gardening, and she is also into crafts, but is much more accomplished.

This started as Easter tag, but that’s past. The rule of this game is to share menu suggestions of 5 – 10 dishes previously posted on your blog for an upcoming food holiday, with photos and links to the recipes. Then, you tag 10 more bloggers to follow suit. I say pick a menu for any upcoming holiday. Everyone has their own celebrations they observe. What about a Mother’s Day brunch or dinner, a graduation party, a Memorial Day barbeque or some personal holiday theme on your calendar?

I’m picking Cinco de Mayo because we love Mexican food (and today is May 5). Here a few favorites that I’ve shared before:


Quick Posole with Pulled Pork and Hominy

Tomatillo Rice with Shrimp and Bacon

Turkey Tomatillo Enchiladas

Black Bean Salad

Mango Guacamole

I’m tagging the following bloggers to continue the game!

Cher at The not so exciting world of a dabbler…
Lana at Bibberche
Candy at Candy Girl
Jen at My Morning Chocolate
Sara at Three Clever Sisters
Sanya at The Good Life

Have fun if you care to play!
