Headed to Vegas!

I will be heading to Las Vegas this week to cover the Latin Grammys. Last year, I was lucky to be able to attend and. thanks to Verizon, I will be attending again this year. Stay tuned because I will be posting pics. I will only be there for 2 days so it's a short trip.

Here are some pics of us at the awards last year!

Throwback Thursday ~ The Grand Canyon

This is us at the Grand Canyon. We went when we lived in Santa Fe, NM. That was over 8 years ago. It was winter and it was cold. But it was super duper amazing. It was scary though because there was ice and I was worried we would slip and fall.

Festival Latino, Wilmington NC

Who knew that Wilmington, NC had a Latino Festival. I didn't. When I found out, I knew I had to go even if just for a peek. Tom was working but I still decided to go see what the brouhaha was.

I was surprised at how many people were there. It wasn't a huge festival but there were lots of people. There was music and shows, mainly for kids. They had a whole area just for kids. There were also some vendors and organizations set up. I looked around but did not find anything to buy. I chatted up a few folks and then headed over to the food vendors.

They had food from Mexico and a lot of Central American food. No Ticos though. But it was a slice of heaven. I started out with Elote. That is corn on the cob. Mexican corn on the cob is slathered in mayo and then rolled in cheese and chili powder. It is really a culinary delight. I always forget to do that with my corn when I make it. Maybe next summer, I will do it.

There were tacos, enchiladas, pupusas, burritos, aguas frescas and so much more. After trolling the food stands, I decided to have Pupusas. They are like these stuffed tortillas. Mine had pork and cheese and were heavenly. OMG, I love a good pupusa. There was not that much else to do but I was glad I took the time to go. I will definitely be back next year.
