Clay Aiken – 70 Million Pounds


Today is Cinco de Mayo, the yearly holiday that celebrates all things Mexican. The festival dates back to May 5, 1862 when Mexican Republic forces defeated the invading French military at the Battle of Puebla, despite being vastly outnumbered. Although the holiday is not currently celebrated through much of Mexico, it remains as popular as ever in the United States and other parts of the world.

Chandler, Arizona even celebrates the day. They have Chihuahua races and even crown two of the dogs king and queen.

A long time ago, Clay said that he was not a big fan of Guacamole or avocados and complained that too much food in California “is smothered in the green stuff.”

He may be correct! According to the California Avocado Commission, Americans are expected to consume more than 70 million pounds of avocados on Cinco de Mayo alone. That’s a lot of guacamole.  A report from My Web Grocer shows that jalapeno peppers and cheese sales have increased more than 70 percent in the past week. The sale of avocados, limes, and refried beans increased more than 30 percent in the past week as well.

We have pictures of Clay shopping for food at Baja Fresh.

Maybe he actually likes a taco or two and maybe he likes to munch on a plateful of Nachos.

  It might be

Fiesta Time at the Aiken Home!!

Maybe we can celebrate with a great video of Clay singing Without You when he was on  The View.

We have many readers from all over the world.  

Do any of you celebrate Cinco de Mayo?

Have a great day, and why not toast to Clay with a delicious Margarita !
