I saw the big Cinco de Mayo sign in the sky from the middle of Tito's parking lot.

    It was not that big....it was just that close (and very yellow). Open 24 hours a day?

        We're doing a Cinco de Mayo potluck at work today. My contribution is a braised 8 pound bone-in pork shoulder. Used onion, garlic, cumin, bay leaf, chipotles in adobo, s&p, cloves, and chili powder, braised for about 5 hours. I reduced the braising liquid and removed most of the fat, to reheat the meat in right before we eat. Also made some pickled onions and spicy black beans. Lots of other good food from dips to enchiladas, the office is starting to smell pretty good at this point.

              You work in a fun office Seamus!

              We have our moments.
               
              I'm stuffed to the gills. Pork tacos, Mexican "lasagna", taco dip, lots of fresh toppings, homemade guacamole, spicy chicken... I need a siesta!

                I want SeamusD tacos!
                 
                Nice boat.
                 
                Cinco de Mayo must have a great 4AM business because it's usually empty.  I do like their eggs and onion burrito at an early hour but I'm never up during an early hour any more.  (I used to stop there on the way to work over twenty years ago so they're doing something right)

                  There's a funny Yelp review about Cinco de Mayo...

                  "The only good thing about this place is that it's open 24/7"

                  Hello.

                    Damn--I have eaten well today, but am suddenly hungry after reading about SeamusD's contribution to the office party.  Not fair!
                     
                    What about that boat, CC???  That looks like a party, too.  We should be having margaritas with Seamus's tacos.

                            A wildly exciting desk lunch of a single coconut greek yogurt...should have packed something.

                                    Another flavor...



                                    But that's 8 WW points..and the Don't Walk sign would start flashing.

                                      My gosh, CC!  I have to get to one of the Indian stores around here to see if we have those chips. 
                                       
                                      Don't talk to me about WW points.  Ballpark food for lunch today:

                                        HOT MASALA! HOT MASALA!

                                        I stopped crying a few minutes ago.

                                        That looks delicious! That park looks really fun...too!

                                        We'll say it's 4 points. Shhhh...nobody else will ever know.

                                              Pnw - That sandwich looks wonderful.  Mmmmm...
                                               
                                              You are right about the dogs!
                                               
                                              Yes, Mustards is still there and still turning out delicious, beautiful food.  I love their savory items, too, but here's a photo of their famous lemon lime tart with brown sugar meringue.  Yes, it's crazy and over the top, but also a thing of beauty.

                                               
                                              LOL, CC.  I will be seeing crosswalks in a whole new way now.

                                                  Pnw - That sandwich looks wonderful.  Mmmmm...

                                                  You are right about the dogs!

                                                  Yes, Mustards is still there and still turning out delicious, beautiful food.  I love their savory items, too, but here's a photo of their famous lemon lime tart with brown sugar meringue.  Yes, it's crazy and over the top, but also a thing of beauty.
                                                   

                                                  LOL, CC.  I will be seeing crosswalks in a whole new way now.


                                                  L2B, I always like Mustards, great food. Nice picture of the LL tart, nice job on the meringue

                                                    Well, CCinNJ probably wouldn't approve, but I'm eating a grilled onion cheddar burger from that place with yellow arches.

                                                          Sensible snack time (we don't have a snack thread )...

                                                          Two chakri & some sweet shakkar para....



                                                          Sweet shakkar para is like the flavors of a fortune cookie...but if the fortune cookie misbehaved a little bit and decided to be a little richer & luxurious.

                                                            CC - I so love naan fresh out of the clay oven, slathered with melted butter. 
                                                             
                                                            Met some former classmates at Mission College for their end-of-semester BBQ.  I tried to be sensible:

                                                             
                                                            Until they brought out these cinnamon buns (made from scratch), and it was all over for me...
