I hate to cook... as in I Hate To Cook Day, which is incidentally today. But, I guess, I'm going to make an exception for mexican food! You know, I really envy those people in California... they are going to have a great time with Mariachi Night! A night of mexican food, dance amd music is enough to make everyone go 'Hola'!
