Passport to Fun // Mexico City, Mexico



our passport to fun date to Mexico City was this past weekend & this was the easiest one so far! we both love Mexican food so i had a plethora of options! i made my mom's stacked enchiladas for our dinner because it's one of my favorites. i also got some chips, salsa, and guacamole! i served the guacamole in our green grasshopper dish because that's the best way to eat guac! i couldn't find churros so i went with Choco Tacos for dessert! & i also used Beth's sangria recipe for some yummy drinks!

i didn't pick out a movie because i didn't think we would have time for one. but i found sombreros at Wilson's so i got some for us! because it's not a fiesta without sombreros! plus they are just fun! we did have an interesting time trying to take a picture of both of us wearing them though since they are so big! i had to squat so we could both fit in the frame! it was so much fun though & now we've got another one in the books!

  1. Those stacked enchiladas sure look tasty! I have made a dish like that before. Angel's Dad is from Mexico City, but I've never been there.
