We have monthly birthday parties with my husband's Serbian/German family members. There are a lot of us and it somewhat resembles the My Big Fat Greek Wedding when we are together! Food is shared and enjoyed by all! This month we are having a Mexican Fiesta with fried taco's and this fabulous Mexican Rice recipe from my mother in law.
