So today we took a trip to Bellingham to spend the afternoon and have dinner with my hunny's family. We all got together at his aunt's house and ate a TON~ Since my empanadas didn't work out, I decided to just make deviled eggs which by the way SOOO did not go with the rest of the Mexican style food that my MIL made. The pic above is Tortas de Camaron con Nopales y Charales (Little ground shrimp and egg patties with cactus and some sort of little dried fishies called Charales). This is pretty much a Good Friday staple in a mexican household. Its really yummy! She also made like a fish soup with crab legs, shrimp, and red snapper, etc. AND she also fried up some breaded red snapper which we ate as fish tacos with a super spicy pico de gallo courtesy of my FIL! PLUS, our dessert was mexican bread pudding (SOOO YUMMM!) which was eaten WAY after due to our massive bellies. All in all it was a great time spent with family and great food.
