On our way to and from Mexico we stopped in Mira Loma to spend time with our friends and family there. It was a little chaotic this time with so many people, my sister-in-law recovering from surgery and so many new baby animals on the rancho. None the less it was a great time.
Susie has two bulldogs who were both pregnant. Talk about delicate dogs, they had to be inseminated and have c-sections. Here's one of the five pups.

I love how social food is. Everyone helps in some way and we eat some damn good food with great conversation.

I'm always down to try mysterious things. No one would tell me what was in this until I ate it. Apparently it was crab brains and other nasty body parts. It was spicy and delicious.
This fried fish was so good, I would've eaten more than one, but I had to leave enough for everyone else.
Jose pouring water for Magaly to make corn tortillas. She added cilantro to the masa, something I've never seen before, it gave it a good flavor.
My mother-in-law and her friend. I've never seen her laugh so hysterically. I wasn't fast enough to record them laughing, but here they are making tortillas.

One thing I really like about California is how heavily saturated it is with Mexican culture. There are so many local specialty shops and the paletero drives buy selling popsicles and snacks.
Kids are so funny. Leah got sick of the littles ones, kicked them out of her playhouse and made this note for the door. Janeece, in the most serious voice, asked me if Leah was going to get a spanking because she really needs one. It made me LOL.
