Sponsored this week by Las Palomas Beach & Golf Resort – featuring Carlos Cuevas for Independence Day celebrations

¡VIVA MEXICO!  We find ourselves once again enveloped by hues of red, white, and green, heralding Mexico’s most patriotic month of all “Mes de la Patria”, with the grand celebration of Mexican Independence Day topping festivities on the night of September 15th.  There are lots of delicious delights to devour during Independence Day celebrations around town, complemented with an assortment of music and entertainment!   Curiously, in sticking with the season, I came across a box of chiles en nogada at Sam’s the other day. Yes, Sam’s. In the frozen foods section. Well, as tempting as that may sound, if you know where (and when) these can be found locally PLEASE let me know!  I believe Regina’s on the way to the Old Port may be the best bet for these scrumptious stuffed poblano chiles topped with walnut sauce and pomegranate. Yum, ahh September!  Let’s dig in and run down the weekend! ¡VIVA!

Of interest: September 15th also provides the opportunity for Mayor Kiko Munro’s 1st mayoral address of the 2018-2021 administration (and his 4th yearly address in all).
