I Don't Like Menudo!!

WHERE ARE WE? La Penita, Mexico

Today is Sunday or Domingo in Spanish.  Domingo is the day that Abuela Tina does Birria!!  If you haven't had birria, you aint Mexican.  I love it, but the only part I find hard to do is eat it when they do at 9 in the morning!!   Its beef and that is lunch to me.  So I generally come for the late shift around 11 which works better for me.  Most of the family showed up and there was lots of laughter most of which I had no idea what it was about.  I do catch some of it, but they have to interpret some of it to me as well if it is really funny.  

The dusty trail to Abuela's house. I feel like little Red Riding Hood!!!

They also had Menudo which is like the tough fat that a butcher strips off a good cut of meat.  They boil it and it turns all squishy and I just can't make myself like it.  I did try it once and the taste is ok but the texture is like eating a sponge.  I will try it again one day.

Oscar had to show off his pet rooster.  It follows him around and he picks it up and pets it.  

In the afternoon I got a text from our friend George who had been to the paint shop yesterday checking when his job would be done.  He sent me these pictures which confirm that we are close to getting it back.  Hopefully early next week.

After supper we headed downtown with JR and Claudine to get a frappe from Kenia's.  On the way we caught a sunset by the Malacon.

Kenia didn't have a lot of customers so we sat down and enjoyed some frappes and deep fried Oreos.

I always like to stop at the taco stand just to take in the smells.  A person can actually get hungry just standing here for a while.  

A quick stop at the grocery store and we were on our way home.  Its been a good day.  Good Nite!!!


  1. Now that Jeep looks familiar. I've covered many vehicles in paper at my summer job.

  2. You are a brave man to try some of that stuff. Lol


  3. Lol. I guess I'm not Mexican. I've never eaten birria. Then they serve goopy birria tacos with the consumme. None for me please. And that bowl of "menudo"....nope. We only had menudo once a year...New Years Eve and New Years Day. It's ok for once a year.
