Feliz Cinco de Mayo!!!! #FoodieExtravaganza

What are you serving up for Cinco de Mayo tonight?  I am making a Chopped Shrimp and Avocado Salad and then finishing up with these delightful bowls of Fresas con Crema.  Strawberries and Cream are a match made in Heaven and I love this Mexican version.  It is the perfect dessert.  Sweet, Fruity, and Creamy.  As an added bonus....It only takes minutes to put together.  


It is National Strawberry Month and the Festive Foodies are celebrating........

Sneha of Sneha's Recipe invited us to join her in sharing recipes to celebrate that perfect summertime treat, the strawberry.  Since we are having this event on Cinco de Mayo, I thought it only appropriate that I find a Mexican recipe to share.  Let's see what the others have prepared..........



This is a traditional and popular Mexican dessert.  It took me longer to gather the ingredients from the refrigerator and pantry than it did to make it.  It is ready to serve immediately but can be refrigerated before serving if you want to make it earlier in the day.
