Fiesta 5.1.10


Eric and Christina know how to throw a mad Cinco de Mayo party, and their homemade tamales are the centerpiece. Apparently this batch took at least 6 man hours of labor to make. Labor of love, I tell you. Totally divine.

We were going to start our party with a jaunt to the Spiral Jetty. I've been dying to see it for years. Unfortunately, I didn't do my research, and had no idea that it would take about 2 hours just to get there...not the perfect outing for a rainy afternoon before a party. So we headed to Sugarhouse Park instead and let the kids run.






After the park we headed back to Eric and Nina's for a feast: Pina coladas, Ashleigh's amazing guacamole (we all agree hers is the best in the world, hands down), tamales, fruit, chile rellano, and quesadillas for the kiddos. Then tres leches from Cafe Rio (thanks to Blake), tres leches cake (Ashleigh), and Mexican brownies (Eric and Christina) with cayenne pepper and cinnamon.

I don't think I will eat again until Tuesday.




We ended the night with a pinata in the pouring rain.


It was another super fun night with super wonderful people. Thanks so much, E & N. We love you guys.
