You don’t have to be Latino to join in the celebration of Cinco de Mayo. The holiday is akin to our Independence Day/Fourth of July holiday and celebrates the victory of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. You can count on every authentic Latino restaurant in the area being hyper-busy this weekend, so here are a few alternative options for having “mucha fiesta.”

Saturday
Cincy Cinco, noon-11 p.m. Saturday, noon-6 p.m. Sunday, Fountain Square, 520 Vine St., Downtown. Free. Family-friendly event showcases Latino music, culture and food. Children’s area with games, raffles, pinatas, cake and a mascot parade on Saturday. Live music from the region’s hottest Salsa bands. Traditional dances, Hispanic youth orchestra and more. Tacopolis features over a dozen restaurants offering wide variety of tacos and “alambres” (Mexican kabobs), plus Argentinian empanadas, Venezuelan fare and many other tasty treats. Largest Latino cultural celebration in the region. cincy-cinco.com.

The Festival
About the Show
Since its inception in 2014, our Barrel Aged Beer Bash has wowed crowds, inspired craft beer enthusiasts, and celebrated the art of barrel aging! Aged in bourbon, tequila, or rum barrels, barrel-aged beers are often deeply flavorful, nuanced, and intense. From light and funky, to sour and bright, to deep, dark, and roasty, there’s something for everyone to try and enjoy!

Our Promise
This year, we’re celebrating the 6th iteration of this beloved festival with over 100 bold and inventive beers! Rare, hard-to-find, and maybe even exclusive to this epic event, these beers are truly special. Tickets include entry to this year’s Barrel Aged Beer Bash, a tasting guide, and a commemorative glass for you to keep!

Slow & Steady
It takes time to age these beers, so we recommend that you take time to drink and appreciate them, as well. These beers are heavy and often have higher-than-average alcohol content, so we encourage you to enjoy these heavier beverages slowly and to appreciate the depth and nuance in each pour.

Try then Buy
We’ve gathered these incredible beers together so that you can taste, sample, and discover new favorites! Though some of the beers at our show are actually unavailable to the public, many of these barrel-aged beers are available downstairs in our Beer Department on a continuous or seasonal basis! So, make sure to take notes and record your favorites so that you can find them in our store!

I’m preparing Christmas Dinner for me and Mom. It’s our first Christmas without Dad and it’s a bit sad but I’m trying to keep things upbeat for Mom. We’re having Dinner for just the 2 of us but later in the afternoon or early evening there will be several people coming over so that will help her spirits. For our Dinner I prepared a 4 lb. Prime Rib, Mashed Potatoes, opened up a quart jar of the Canned Green Beans, and Baked some Hawaiian Rolls. Mom had a baked an Apple Pie and a Pecan Pie yesterday. Both were made using Splenda Sweetner. I’d like to wish each and every one of you along with your families a Very Merry Christmas! And to all a good night…..

Hi everyone and Merry Christmas! We are having a a Christmas Eve Party tonight and its all Appetizers and Sandwiches. Yesterday I went to Kroger and purchased Lunch Meat and Cheese to make Meat and Cheese Tray. Then I bought a loaf of Mini Cocktail Rye Bread and a Pork Tenderloin Roast. I’ll bake the Roast and slice it thin and lightly bake the Rye Bread and make Mini Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches, with Spicy Mustard and Horseradish Sauce on the side for toppings. Finally I bought a couple of Frozen Appetizers for the Kids that I’ll bake.

Merry Christmas all!

Today’s Menu: Kitchen is closed today!

I had to fast this morning. I had to be at the doctor’s office for my 4 month check up for Cholesterol, sugar and all the vitals. 30 degrees and flurries outside this morning. 35 degrees and cloudy for the day. I normally don’t eat out but I told Mom I would take her out to eat for Dinner the day I go for my check up. So tonight I took her to Outback Steakhouse. We both had the Sirloin Steak Dinner. Sorry no pictures, I don’t like taking pictures in restaurants. Kitchen back open tomorrow. Enjoy all, later!

I came across an excellent article on the Health Benefits of Pumpkin. It’s from the Web MD website (https://www.webmd.com/). You can click the link at the end of the post to see the whole article or click the link above to go to the Web MD website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy!

Health Benefits of Pumpkin

Beta Carotene Boost
Just like their orange cousins, the carrot and the sweet potato, pumpkins are rich in beta carotene. Your body changes this antioxidant to vitamin A. You need vitamin A to see, ward off germs, and for your reproductive system to work the way it should. It also helps your heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs stay healthy………

I’m still having issues with Windows 10. Now when I transfer my photos of my Dinner or any pictures transfer from a camera I can’t find where the pictures are being sent! I have a friend coming over Friday to see if he can help so until that time I can not show any new pictures. I can post the pictures I have on file but that’s all. Like my Dinner tonight, I’ll have no overall dinner plate picture. I will post the individual pictures I have on file. Sorry hope to have it worked out soon! Thank you all!!

PS – I miss Windows 7!!!!!
