In 1968, President Lyndon Johnson signed into law a week-long celebration of the contributions and influences Hispanic Americans have made on the culture and history of the United States. This observance was expanded from a week to a month by President Ronald Reagan in 1988, to begin on September 15th, which recognizes the start of the Mexican War for Independence. All US presidents since 1988 have given a Presidential Proclamation to mark this historic date.
Today, there are roughly 63 million Hispanics living in the United States, that make up 19% of the population. They come from diverse countries and bring with them unique and different cultures and cuisines.
At Kingsland Walk Senior Living, we will be recognizing those culinary contributions and celebrating the food of Mexico by serving watermelon tomatillo salad, shrimp tacos, refried beans, and mini taco tarts for Happy Hour.
I chose this country because I love Mexican food! During this process I learned tomatillos and watermelon go together well, with honey to offset the bitterness.
We hope you enjoy our interpretation of these dishes and learn a little more about Mexico in the process!
