Well son, you see, there's this little website I like to call Wikipedia, if you don't know about it, you should Google that while you're at it.
I'm such a jerk
Actually, I think having him research it is a much better way of him understanding what it is don't you?
Here's what I got:
"MOM, just tell me"
no, you like your computer so much figure it out
After a few minutes, yelling from the other room "Mexico beat France in a war and so they should be celebrated"
For those of you who don't know, the small Mexican army beat France in 1862 which was a feat that was not expected. France invaded Mexico because they wanted their money back and were not willing to negotiate (the civil wars left them bankrupt and not able to repay debts).
Anyway, this isn't a history lesson so if you'd like to learn more visit here.
Now, I normally don't create dishes based on events i.e. St. Patricks day, Valentines Day etc. but hey, I like Mexico and their food and so here is me commemorating the day!
