Loteria!
(Mexican Bingo)



We usually play this game with dried beans but how cute are these Hello Maypole felt balls????














Musica: 


My favorite station on Pandora. 








La Comida:



Mole Poblano is a typical and traditional dish served in Puebla. Usually eaten with Turkey but we decided to try it with chicken. If you are local, we buy ours in Utah County. The recipe has ben passed down two generations and it is amazing. 
(email me if you want to purchase the mole paste) 

The Menu:

Mole Poblano with chicken
Mexican Rice
Black Beans w/ Queso Fresco


Quacamole

Pico de Gallo
Chips


Fruit! -Pineapple, watermelon, papaya, cucumbers or mangos 
We love to each out fruit with a little bit of salt, lime juice and some Tajin (a type of chile powder)






Drink

Aguas Frescas- try some nice cold water, crushed ice and different splices of fruit to give it some color and flavor.  

(no sugar required) 

Or some Jarrito's soda which you can find at your local market


Dessert:
Try this delicious Tres Leches Cake my friend Michelle made over at The Sweet Molcajetes  along with other delicious and authentic mexican desserts.
