Yes, I know Halloween and Day of the Dead were a good two weeks ago. But I had such nice pictures, that I just had to share. Even if I´m sharing late!
Anyway, we loved how pretty the jack ´o lanterns were, Clara and Joey got dressed up to go trick or treating. Note: ours seems to be the only private residence that gives out Halloween candy. We hit up all the corner stores (and the tortilla store, of course) within a block radius of our house. And, for future reference, the OXXO does NOT give out candy! ;) No real surprise there!
We celebraed Day of the Dead by making pan de muerto--traditional bread that I eat far too much of during September and October. I used a different recipe than last year. It was good bread, but it didn´t call for orange extract, so it just didn´t taste like pan de muerto. We´ll try a different recipe next year.
