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.♥♥♥♥
My duck quilt is slowly but surely coming along. I just need to stitch around some of the ducks, and choose a border. This will be for a friend that is expecting a grand daughter.
Now for the past.
A big favorite for boys and men. This particular one came out in 1996.
Yes, they look kind of scary. My youngest daughter collected these in the 90’s. She had all sizes with different costumes.
Vintage Mexican pottery is very collectable. I don’t have too many pieces, but I do collect them when I can get them for a good price, which is rare.
