VeganMoFo: Beware; -kind of- long post!

Hello. I've been hella busy with school and many other things. For example, yesterday, I returned from a mini-trip I made with my dad to a town in Estado de México (estado de méxico is another state in my country, super close to México City).

Why, you ask? Because we were invited to a wedding.
I was really worried because I didn't know if I was going to have food options at both the hotel and wedding reception.
So, I made a quick trip to San Diego with my mom and got a few things...2 clif bars, 2 raw bars, apple sauce, 2 instant rice noodle soups and a cookie : D
All these things were really helpful for the flight and while we were in the hotel room.

Happy applesauce-face before leaving to the airport and part of Master Yoda's head.

Ok, here's the church!

Isn't it gorgeous? It's more than 400 years old : D and it has a beautiful baroque style decoration inside.

The wedding had a beautiful indian theme and many of the bride's relatives got dressed up according to it:

The bride looked so pretty and her dress was amazingly beautiful as well.
Right after the ceremony, we headed to the reception, that was held in a ranch.

Cute/small artificial lake near the reception

Well, well, well, onto the food.
My dad told me that the bride's grandma is a vegetarian...but I never thought there would be vegan food!

Ensalada de nopales: not great, but edible and spicy ; )

The perfect combination of sweet, spicy and tangy; [delicious!!] tamarind martini (I would also say boozy, but I couldn't taste the alcohol)

Tabouleh over lettuce leaves, hummus and pita wedge

After my meal, I had a snack!

Potato chips with lime juice/salt and drowned in hot sauce (valentina!) or Hot sauce with potato chips...

Enjoying the concert (yeah, Juan Gabriel sang at the wedding, haha)

Plane snack (err, breakfast)

I had a great time and the wedding was awesome. I wish I had posted more this month, but it was impossible. Before christmas, I'll be posting holiday recipes : D!
Currently, I have in mind ponche navideño ; ) with piquete (booooze, haha, I'm sorry. Anyway, I think I'll have mine alcohol-less : p).


  1. I love when you are surprised at events/weddings and you get decent vegan food! But good idea taking snacks as well ;)

  2. those chip sound crazy! lots of fun!

  3. Sounds like a lovely (and delicious!) time :)
