It's Cinco de My O'Birthday Giveaway

My trip to Ireland is less than a month away, and so for today, I'm feeling both Mexican and Irish!  Their flags are remarkably similar, don't you think?

Ireland

Mexico

How could I resist having a giveaway to celebrate Cinco de My O'Birthday (translation:  it's my birthday and I feel O'ld).  Anyone care to guess how O'ld I'm feeling today?  



I'll give you a hint:  It starts with "cinco" and ends in "ocho".  Or, if you prefer the Irish translation, it starts with "cuig" and ends in "ochd".

Now, this is nacho ordinary giveaway.  There's a hot and spicy prize lined up for you.


I was going to post an image of me in my bikini, but I didn't want you to burn your eyes.  (You're welcome.)

But before we get to the prize, let's party on!  George and Gracie are fired up and ready to rumble!

Speaking of spicy:


And hot:



Let's party like there's no tomorrow!  Because at my age, you just never know.


Time to bust open the pinata and see what's inside.


Today's hot and spicy prize is a 10 fat quarter bundle of Misty Impressions by Ty Pennington.


To win, leave a comment telling me what you order from your favorite Mexican restaurant menu.  Me?  Chile rellenos all the way . . . right after my margarita.  Followers, seasoned or new, can gain an extra chance by leaving a second comment telling me so.  Blog about this giveaway for a third chance to win.  Just leave another comment with a link to your post.


So let's party on!  I'll leave the comments open for one week from today, and announce the winner next Saturday, May 12th.

let's party. I mean let's celebrate.

Any meal on the menu that claims to have shrimp in it. Yummy, love shrimp. Shrimp burritos have been very good a time or two; I had a shrimp quesadilla once that nearly made me weep it was so good. If the special contains shrimp then I will often be brave and go for that.

Their orange soda is as good as Crush.

Happy Cinco de Your Birthday.. just doesn't work as well does it?

I LOVE chile rellenos so I get that on the side and also enchilladas de mole which I didn't know I would like until I tried it. Chocolate on an enchilla..?? ;) That the jumbo margarita to share with the hubby and life is good!

Samantha said...

I'm a follower.. and correct my other comment.....

That AND the jumbo margarita..

Sadly, I've not been drinking, I'd likely be MORE coherent if I had. ;)

Gill said...

What a great birthday celebration!

After the margaritas, I hardly even mind what I get to eat. :) But if I think about it, some kind of enchillada is my choice.

I usually get, like you, first a marguerite , then I like what is called Mexico City tacos at our favorite restaurant called Papa's and Beer. It is 3 tacos, one chick, one beef, and one pork. YUM!!

Last month we went to a small family-style Mexican restaurant in Diana, TX, while I was visiting my Dad (I'm in NC). I ordered a dish with beef strips, peppers & onions. Don't remember the name, but it was delicious. But the best was the guacamole that also came on the plate. Happy Birthday. Hope you have a great trip. Thanks for the giveaway.

Linda said...

The Mexican restuarant I go has fishbowl margaritas! Deadly!! I love hot chicken burritos.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Mhairi said...

Being allergic to tomatoes and alcohol, Mexican isn't really my favourite food but a number of years ago I did give my beloved great aunt a card for her birthday that said - "you are so old that if you were cheese you would be ..... mouldy! Not nice but she kept it and got me back the following year with an equally funny card.
Happy Birthday!!

Teresa F. said...

I've never been to a Mexican restaurant. There aren't any where I live. It doesn't matter. the most important is you Happy Birthday Barbara!!!

Happy O'birthday! I didn't realize today was Cinco de Mayo til you mentioned it. As for my fav Mexican dish ... ummm ... I never really order it :o*(

Goood luck to all the participants!

Celtic Thistle said...

Happy Birthday, hope you have a great day!

It is a long time since I have been in a Mexican restaurant, but if my memory serves me right (and at my age that is not always the case!) my favourite dish was chicken enchilladas.

Celtic Thistle said...

I am a follower too.

Love those fabrics, you are very generous to give them away!

We are off to Dublin later this month for a family wedding, and really looking forward to our trip to Ireland like you.

Teresa in Music City said...

You cracked me up with your post today Barbara! =^..^= Loved the pictures of Gracie and George - I'd party with them any day!!! Hope you are having a wonderful birthday week!

I always order the chicken fajitas because I love to see them still cooking in that little pan and then build them up just the way I like :*)

Teresa in Music City said...

And of course I'm a follower!

~Kelie~ said...

Hope you are having a WONDERFUL b-day!!!!
My fav thing to order is the beef enchilladas and soft tacos and cheese dip!!! I love Mexican food!!!!
Thanks for the chance to win!!

Lisa Cox said...

I'm kinda strange when it comes to ordering from my favorite Mexican restaurant. I usually order beef fajita nachos, but I hate it when the chips are all soggy. So, I order the nachos with no chips, no onions, and no green peppers, ick.
That way I can use the chips with salsa they bring to the table and my chips are always crisp.

Lisa Cox said...

Happy Birthday!!!!
Hope you have a great one.
I am a faithful follower of course

Dana Gaffney said...

Happy Birthday to you.... I'm looking at that same number this year. If it's a new to me restaurant I want some kind of combo, so I can try a little of everything, keeps me from stealing off of other's plates. If we go to the only good Mexican restaurant in town, I have fajitas. I hope you have an amazing day.

Happy 50!!! Life is just getting good now. Always order hot wings and chicken nacho grande. yum! Thanks for a chance.

Kate said...

Happy Birthday! It depends on which Mexican place we go to as to what I order. There's a place in the town where My Guy got went to college that we always order a burrito enchindla style split on two plates. Yummy!

Gene Black said...

Happy Birthday, Happy Cinco de Mayo, happy happy!
My favorite dish to order at ONE of my favorite Mexican restaurants is a Shrimp (camarone) Chimichanga.
At the other favorite, it is "Camarones Veracruzanas."
I also love Tacos de Carne Asada. MMmmmmmm now I am hungry.

Gene Black said...

I am a follower....and I wish I could follow you to Ireland - the land of some of my ancestors. Drink a Guiness for me!

KatieQ said...

Happy Birthday! I only remember I'm old when I look in the mirror or even worse, I see a picture of myself. Cameras have become enemy. They make me look old because they can't capture the twinkle in my eye, the spring in my step, or the radiant glow of my personality. They do a pretty good job capturing the wrinkles on my face.

Diane Wild said...

You are way too funny. You should have a talk show. Happy Birthday. Favorite Mexican dish? Okay, that cheesy stuff wrapped up in a tortilla with sour cream and lotsa Margaritas..Yup, I'm into the culture.

Diane Wild said...

Here kitty, kitty. I'm a follower.

KatieQ said...

My favorite item at a Mexican restaurant is a hard choice. As long as I have a Margarita first, I'll eat anything but shrimp (my favorite food, but I am deathly allergic). I am partial to tortilla soup. I love all of the tasty goodies floating around. I also like fajitas, burritos, soft tacos, and a heap of guacamole.

Mimi said...

Happy birthday - great way to celebrate!!! My favorite dish to order is Nachos!! Thanks for the chance.

Mimi said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just think, the world is celebrating with you! Love the hats on cats.

My FAVORITE dish is at El Agave, a little place in Pacific, MO. I never would have tried this except a friend ordered it and gave me a bite. It's a Baja roll filled with . . . here's the strange part . . . grilled chicken, Feta cheese, Spinach and black beans and some type of spicy sauce. I get the white cheese dip and pour over it along with some pico de gallo. It sounded more Greek to me but this is one of the best things I ever ate. And I'm picky at restaurants.

kc said...

Whoohooo!! Happy Cinco de My-oBirthday! Love that pinata!

Oh, meeohmyo.....what to order? Depends. If we were in Mexico, in our very favorite restaurant, we'd start with (of course) 2 frio margaritas, then a plate of panchos, all the way (that's like cheese nachos, but they have fajita meat & jalapenos, too), then Driver would read the menu for a while & finally settle on some kind of fajita, while I'd stick with taco salad, pollo, sin queso, sin crema.... (chicken, no cheese, no sour cream)

And if we were here in the good ole USA, he'd order something green & spicy, while I'd stick with my grilled shrimp. I *always* get the same thing, no matter which country we happen to be in! :) mmmmm......makes me rethink what I'd planned for dinner!

Janet said...

Happy birthday! I LOVE chicken enchiladas so they are what I check out first. Sometimes I fall back on corn flour tortillas. Only one Mexican restaurant where I live and the quality of food goes up and down depending on who the current cook is.

We always order the margarita first and I go for the chili rellenos and DH has the shredded beef burrito (I think because it is bigger. LoL Judy C thanks you

As for ordering Mexican, typically I love a marguerita with salted rim and chimichangas, or Marguerita with salted rim and enchiladas, or Marguerita {You guessed it} a salted rim with chile rellanos, or a Marguerita with (can you tell I really enjoy anything on the menu with a marguerita- traditional, strawberry, mango.........all of course with a salted rim!)

Happy Birthday! We celebrated Cinco de Mayo with Margaritas, pineapple jicama and avocado salad, chile rellanos stuffed with spinach, raisins, pine nuts and cheese then baked, not fried. Cilantro rice and esquitas (a corn dish) were thes sides. Mushroom quesadillas for appetizers. It truly was a flavorful feast!

Happy Birthday. I LOVE your party cat. Too cute. I will be nice and not guess that age thing since I'm right behind you if I've figured your hints out correctly.

We have an amazing Mexican restaurant minutes from our house and they make the most awesome tasting fajitas. That is what I order all the time. Steak fajitas of course with lots of veggies and tons of guacamole. YUM! THIS really was not the question for me to answer though because for the past three days I've been dying for Mexican food. Hubby mentioned Taco Bell and I laughed reminding him I said MEXCIAN FOOD. HA I think he may have been offended. oops. We got chicken. :(

Anyway have an awesome birthday.

Happy Birthday, and that's a fabulous cat pinata, I love it! I always always always order the same thing from my favorite restaurant (of course I always order a different same thing at my 2nd favorite mexican restaurant each time too...)
Chicken fajitas with flour tortillas and negro modelo beer. Speaking of that I have leftovers fajitas from dinner Saturday night coming up here soon for lunch!

Thank you for the giveaway!

Happy birthday!

Oh, how I miss Chi-Chi's...I miss the Chicken Chimichanga. I've tried other places near me but none have rivaled their delicious Chimi.
