Friday Five - Mexican Independence edition
Viva Mexico! Today is Mexican Independence day! Or at least it's when our independence war was declared... Technically we were not independent from Spain until 1820.
So today my Friday five are five things that I still miss about Mexico
1. Family and friends - of course my number one. I have aunts, uncles, cousins, the guy who owned the store where we bought our tortas, the taco guy in the corner.
2. Taco stands on every corner - yes, this one was real in my hometown. There were many taco stands, all very close to each other, it was the most magical thing ever !
3. Fruit stands (and other snack stands). Whenever I'm hungry and on my way to soccer, I always wish for a giant cup of mango chunks with lime and chile. Bags of garbanzos, or peanuts!!
4 Mexican bakeries. No additional other comment needed
5. Fresh fruits, veggies, meat and tortillas. - I used to dream about buying fresh tortillas and meat!! The meat in Mexico tasted so good !
What would you miss from your life if you had to move somewhere else?
Favorite taco ?
