Mexican Egg Casserole
Sat., May 5th will be the celebration day of the festive Cinco de Mayo. Many people do believe that is the day of Mexico’s Independence; however, no indeed, Mexico’s Independence Day is on Sept. 16. May 5th is the day that a very brave small Mexican army fought against the invading much larger French army in Puebla, Mexico in 1862. The Mexican army won that battle. At the same time the beginning of our American Civil war was going on so it’s also a day to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy here. On June 7th, 2005, the US Congress issued a Concurrent Resolution calling on the President of the US to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the US to observe Cinco de Mayo with appropriate ceremonies and activities. That day is therefore celebrated here in the USA and in Puebla, Mexico. Herewith I present for your eating delight, a dish I hope that for both our Mexican community as well as for those of us from other parts of the world will enjoy.
