Friday Favorites: Cinco de Mayo Style

{roasted vegetable tacos}

Happy Friday! And this Friday is especially happy because it’s my boyfriend’s last day of his first year of law school <— Insert party emojis here 🙂 I don’t know who’s more excited, me or him. And what better way to celebrate than with some amazing Cinco de Mayo recipes?!

Now, I’m still obsessing over these Vegan Burrito Bowl Enchiladas from Wednesday, but I’m definitely eyeing up all a few of the dishes below. Not that I have any big plans for cinco or anything, seeing that it’s a work day and all. Does anyone else agree it should become a school holiday? No? Oh well, at least there will be delicious food involved. Do you have any exciting plans for May 5 (or this weekend)?

Have a wonderful Friday everyone!

avocado salsa— best. thing. ever.

this quinoa black bean avocado salad with cilantro lime vinaigrette looks so healthy
