Our last Saturday night
Almost the whole year we've kept up a tradition for Saturday nights. We'd head to the Ajijic, San Antonio or San Juan Cosala plaza mejor and eat tacos at a taco stand.
My favorite are in San Antonio. Dave, Jane and I get the Tacos Adobada. Riley, Charlie and Milli get the Bistek. Adobada is Bistek with a spicy sauce on them.
Dave likes the Tacos al Pastor in Ajijic best, they are pork done on a spit.
San Antonio has lots of toppings which is pretty unusual in Mexico. Most tacos stands we've been to only have onion, cilantro and lime to put on them.
The kids always get soda with their tacos. Saturday is one of the few times we let them get soda. I usually get horchata, a rice and cinnamon drink that reminds me of watery rice pudding. Charlie often ends up drinking all of my first cup full.
Frequently after we get tacos, we go to the nearby heladeria (ice cream shop) and get ice cream or popsicles. My favorite is a lime popsicle or a Magnum bar. I know Dave will soon start having Magnum bar withdrawals. He ate a ton of these. We've had them before in Europe, but never seen them in the US. The ice cream and popsicles are usually made right in the store. (Except the Magnums).
I was glad we had our last Saturday night free to have our tradition one last time. We'll miss it.
