Bienvenidos! 

 

Since this week  on the 16th is Mexican Independence Day , I wanted  to share a few  of my favorite things.

Pan Dulce (Mexican pastry),  is always a special treat for me and my family.  It’s tasty and colorful.

I remember my mom sending my dad to buy some if she knew that we were having company.

Then we have menudo which is a soup made from tripe and hominy, it’s another favorite of mine, but many people get turned off because of the tripe.

Mexican pottery is something I collect. I especially like Talavera  and vintage pottery.  This blue nesting set of bowls was found at an estate sale and is vintage.

These bowls are hard to find and when you do find them, they can be quite pricey.  This set was a great deal.

My favorite pottery is the Talavera.  I love the blue and yellow, but I also have a red piece.

Even though I am a very Americanized Mexican, I do try to keep the traditions going for my children and grandchildren.  It’s so important not to forget your heritage and be proud of it as well.♥♥♥♥
