El Dia de Los Muertos
We celebrated Day of the Dead this year on November 1st, so my friend Miranda could come--she's a teacher and her Tuesdays are really tough. So, Sunday night it was. Lots of yummy food--(we're still eating the leftovers!) First time to make tamales! Pickled veggies, guacamole, queso fundido, cinqo leche cake, biscochitos, 3 homemade salsas, pork & beef and rajas and crema tacos, black beans, yum! Anyway, thought I'd post a picture of the altar we made. Pictures and mementos of those who are no longer with us. It was nice. It did take me a while to pack it all back up. Why is it that putting out the decorations is always fun--you, know, like Christmas--but putting it away not so much fun?
