Reason to Celebrate

May 3, 2019

It’s May. And if that wasn’t reason enough to celebrate, this first weekend brings us both the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo. Like we needed an excuse for a delightful Bourbon cocktail or quick plate of Mexican. So, what’ll it be? Maybe both.

Mexican comfort food. Can you think of a better way to start the New Year than with a bowl of tortilla chips simmered in salsa and topped with a fried egg, cheese, avocado, onion and cilantro? The hardest part is the gathering of the ingredients. If you can put some salsa in a pot and fry an egg, you’ve got this.
