Here in Texas, there have always been so many Mexican restaurants celebrating this holiday. As I just looked at the title,I had never noticed the influence of Mayonnaise had on this great holiday. This week I saw this on FB and thought it was so cute, I wanted to post it for all to see.
“Most people don’t know that back in 1912, Hellmann’s Mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after it’s stop in NY. This would have been the largest single shipment of mayo ever delivered in Mexico.
But as you know, the great ship did not make it to NY. The ship hit an iceberg and sank. The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayo, and were eagerly awaiting it’s delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great that they declared a National Day of Mourning.
The Natl Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known of course as….Sinko De Mayo!”
Happy Taco Tuesday everyone! We actually ate out for the first time on Sunday night and went of course to a Mexican restaurant. We were craving stuffed chile rellanos and they were absolutely wonderful. There were only 3 couples in the restaurant so we had all the time to sit there and enjoy being out of the house. Because we wore our mask while walking in, we were seated and Randy ask our waiter what the trick was to eating wearing the mask. We found it to be a little trickier than we thought, eating while wearing it, but we managed to down an entire basket of chips and hot sauce. The mask was thrown in the wash as soon as we got home. It was only after we paid that the cashier told us that it was only the employees that had to wear the mask. We think that since we mastered that trick that it will now be our new diet plan. Eat while wearing our mask. I’ll let you know how it goes. Happy Sinko De Mayo!!!!!
