So many Christmas decorations are still up.
You’ll remember I spent Christmas and New Year’s with Cynthia in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas and I am now in San Antonio, Lake Chapala, Jalisco with Michi. The Holiday Season rages on. This is a good web page telling about a ton of Christmas traditions in Mexico from December 12 – February 2 with good pictures of food, decorations, etc.
Yesterday we decided to celebrate January 6th, the day when the children in Mexico traditionally get their gifts from the three Magi (because I wanted to see what that cake was like!). There’s a 3 Kings Cake reminiscent of the Mardi Gras King Cake with a baby Jesus baked in. Michi hit the baby on her first cut! We ate a little of the cake and gave the rest away…
Boxes of 3 Kings Cake available in San Cris and the one Michi bought for us here in San Antonio.
..and the church that looks a lot like a California mission.
In a prior life Michi was a private chef for hoity-toity parties in Aspen and Vail. Now she cooks for her friends. YUM!
Prep for the meat dish. Yikes!
