Yea, I can bring it, How does friday night, south of the border night sound? Everyone bring what they want on the quadillias, or if everyone brought one thing, we could all share, and I could cook it, also, what about some dips, I know some I could make as well. Yes steph, there is a campground, but I would wait to make reservations because they charge 8 dollars to make it, and we may not need to because they said its not really busy that time of year, Thursday would be great, what time do u want to leave? Rhonda, what time can I pick you up?

Taco/Quesadilla Bar
salsa hot and mild
taco meat ground beef
hard shells tortillas chips
chicken strips
sour cream
flavored rice
refried beans

Not that we need all of these, but am I on the right track here? The dip I make is served at room temperature, a layered deal with cream cheese on the bottom salsa and cheese, etc. Sorry gals I am no gourmet cook.

Anybody have a recipe for pico de gallo? I love it and Michelle had made some glacamole to die for, another thing I don't know how to make.

Does everyone like magaritas?

airedale 03-03-2008 10:19 PM

IM not sure how I feel about Beef right now!! There is a large re-call

wheel interested 03-03-2008 10:36 PM

Celebrate with our neighbors
Thought this would be of interest if we go with the theme, might as well see what we are celebrating.

Cinco de Mayo
The 5th of May is not Mexican Independence Day, but it should be! And Cinco de Mayo is not an American holiday, but it should be. Mexico declared its independence from mother Spain on midnight, the 15th of September, 1810. And it took 11 years before the first Spanish soldiers were told and forced to leave Mexico.
So, why Cinco de Mayo? And why should Americans savor this day as well? Because 4,000 Mexican soldiers smashed the French and traitor Mexican army of 8,000 at Puebla, Mexico, 100 miles east of Mexico City on the morning of May 5, 1862.
The French had landed in Mexico (along with Spanish and English troops) five months earlier on the pretext of collecting Mexican debts from the newly elected government of democratic President (and Indian) Benito Juarez. The English and Spanish quickly made deals and left. The French, however, had different ideas.
Under Emperor Napoleon III, who detested the United States, the French came to stay. They brought a Hapsburg prince with them to rule the new Mexican empire. His name was Maximilian; his wife, Carolota. Napoleon's French Army had not been defeated in 50 years, and it invaded Mexico with the finest modern equipment and with a newly reconstituted Foreign Legion. The French were not afraid of anyone, especially since the United States was embroiled in its own Civil War.
The French Army left the port of Vera Cruz to attack Mexico City to the west, as the French assumed that the Mexicans would give up should their capital fall to the enemy -- as European countries traditionally did.
Under the command of Texas-born General Zaragosa, (and the cavalry under the command of Colonel Porfirio Diaz, later to be Mexico's president and dictator), the Mexicans awaited. Brightly dressed French Dragoons led the enemy columns. The Mexican Army was less stylish.
General Zaragosa ordered Colonel Diaz to take his cavalry, the best in the world, out to the French flanks. In response, the French did a most stupid thing; they sent their cavalry off to chase Diaz and his men, who proceeded to butcher them. The remaining French infantrymen charged the Mexican defenders through sloppy mud from a thunderstorm and through hundreds of head of stampeding cattle stirred up by Indians armed only with machetes.
When the battle was over, many French were killed or wounded and their cavalry was being chased by Diaz' superb horsemen miles away. The Mexicans had won a great victory that kept Napoleon III from supplying the confederate rebels for another year, allowing the United States to build the greatest army the world had ever seen. This grand army smashed the Confederates at Gettysburg just 14 months after the battle of Puebla, essentially ending the Civil War.
Union forces were then rushed to the Texas/Mexican border under General Phil Sheridan, who made sure that the Mexicans got all the weapons and ammunition they needed to expel the French. American soldiers were discharged with their uniforms and rifles if they promised to join the Mexican Army to fight the French. The American Legion of Honor marched in the Victory Parade in Mexico, City.
It might be a historical stretch to credit the survival of the United States to those brave 4,000 Mexicans who faced an army twice as large in 1862. But who knows?

tin sista 03-05-2008 08:17 PM

pico de gallo, etc.
Hey Carol,
I use cilantro, onion, tomato, tomatillos and that's it--my cousin's wife is from Mexico she taught me her way, I'm sure there's many varities. Its not the same as salsa so its more the flavor of the cilantro/tomato/etc. I can make some if you'd like. Cinco de mayo is a great theme, anyone have one of those cool margarita machines?? I can just bring my friend Jose Cuervo...

Sharon, too funny about the men. Are they optional or mandatory for the rally? Tee hee just kidding Dave and Sam...

wheel interested 03-05-2008 08:37 PM

You made me think jalapenos :brows: might be added to our list!

I never saw a tomatillo Steph. :blush: I just looked them up. Your recipe sounds great. I don't think one could improve upon real authenticity.

Lime salt and Jose, yum.

airedale 03-05-2008 11:05 PM
