New Year!

I finally get a chance to post something!

For the Christmas holiday we went to Mexico. It's been a long time since I had been down there! 
Too many things have  changed. It makes me happy and sad at the same time.

Just to name some of  these things, the technology and transportation are so much 
better than they were years ago. But there are some traditions that slowly are banishing away.  
I didn't see people traveling on horses any more. 
I guess we can't have it both ways.

We had the fortune to eat some very delicious foods, and a bunch of fresh fruits.
On of my favorite fruit  I eat was guayaba. I payed only 13 pesos for a kilo!! 
The above picture, is at the Tianguis. 
Tianguis happens on an appointed day of  the week in almost every town of Mexico.
 That day vendors take over the streets to sell goods, an open day market.
I also got to eat my very favorite food, mole. 
 I love mole! My Mom has cooked  it for me since I was a baby.
 It has been a long time since I've eaten it. More than 6 years! 

I know we can go to Walmart or some other store and get a jar of mole, but trust me, it will never taste as good as the one made with all these ingredients. 

                                           It's THE LITTLE THINGS that make it taste soo good.
I don't have the recipe. I only will tell you some of the ingredients my Mom puts in it: Fried tortilla,
almonds, fried cookies named Galletas Marias, onion, peanuts, 
chocolate named Chocolate Aguelita, clove, raisins, fried bread, garlic, 
and sesame seeds are some of the ingredients in mole. 

I'm very grateful for the chance of finally going to visit my Mexico after a long time ago. 
I couldn't ask for anything better to finish 2012!

  1. Your photos are very nice. I've never tried mole - looks delicious. It is bittersweet when traditions change - we can't stop progress - tis a pity.

    Happy New Year!

  2. Sounds like an amazing trip! So happy for you. The mole looks wonderful, and I'm sure way better than a jar of it at Walmart! I'm so glad you were able to join us for Little Things Thursday!
