I have some more food photos from my last jaunt to Mexico and thought I would post a few of them in honor of the day.
This a picture of some catcus paddles on the griddle. See the flat breads in the background? The grilled nopales will be the topping for them.
To the right is a photo of paletas, or juicy, fruit-filled ice pops. A wonderfully refreshing way to end a spicy meal. In the background, one of my husband's favorites, chocolate covered bananas.
This is the inside of a candy store, or a dulceria. This section displays a lot of the candied fruits and vegetables. Please click on the photo to enlarge it so you can see all the wonderful goodies.
