Okay, I might have gone a little overboard with the amount of photos in this post. Just giving you a fair warning now. I’m not apologizing for it.
So Cinco de Mayo is coming! By the time you read this post, the holiday will be tomorrow, but I wrote this in the past, so that means it’s in two days. It’s also my awesome friend’s birthday – Happy Birthday, Naomi!
I started this blog a little over a year ago, though for most of 2014, I didn’t work on it (if you want to know why, you can read my novel in my relaunch post). When I came back, it was the middle of December. I had debated on doing some sort of holiday-themed recipe, but I didn’t really have a schedule or plan for what I would be posting. I just knew I had to get the blog going again. So I’ve basically missed the mark on sharing recipes that would be fitting for holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas! I could have done something for Easter, but for some reason I missed that train too. I wasn’t about to make the same mistake for Cinco de Mayo.
My original plan was to make delicious carnitas! But I did something really dumb and my pork shoulder went bad. I was so bummed; I hate wasting food. It wasn’t really in my budget to go buy another roast, so I moved on. They will happen at some point, though. Promise….
