One of the things I love about Zihua is the giant market, a series of vegetable, fruit, meat and fish stalls. Our friends Stacy and Keri brought us here on a former trip. I love it even though it's sweltering inside and the hanging dried beef strips will smack you in the face if you're not careful.
Check out all this bootie I bought for just over $3:
I've been making salads on the days we are home for lunch:
If you can actually find a salad on a menu in town, the base is usually iceberg lettuce. I miss my dark leafy greens!
I've been taking in plenty of green in the form of guacamole. This is a once a day event for me:
If cheese comes sprinkled on top TH eats the top layer and then I break out my raw corn chips. Between the chips and my food photo shoots, I don't know how anyone can bear to have dinner with me. TH is such a good sport.
I've also been enjoying a lot of raw fish, in the form of ceviche or tiritas. Tiritas are skinny strips of fish "cooked" in the acidity of lime. I love them with avocados and a hearty dose of hot sauce.
Question: How did you spend Christmas? Did you enjoy any traditional foods?
