A man’s guide to buying Christmas gifts for women | VOXXI

A man’s guide to buying Christmas gifts for women | VOXXI | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

Women would love us to be mind-readers. But, if you pay attention, your lady will end up thinking you actually did read her mind! If you tune in to her, you will notice subtle hints such as pointing out to you what she think is “so cute” in a magazine, asking your opinion on a certain dress or perfume at a store, conveniently cutting out and accidentally forgetting on the dashboard of your truck that picture of a great pair of shoes from the newspaper insert. She may even be upfront and declare: “I simply must have this!”. For the most part, you should easily be able to figure out exactly what she wants...

Pan-Tuflas: Comfort Shoes | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

Pantufla – zapatilla sin orejas ni talón para andar por casa. Or house shoes in English, pa los que no entiendan. After a long day’s work there’s nothing better than getting home, kicking off your shoes, and throwing on a pair of pantuflas, especially if it’s cold! My own have mysteriously disappeared, which I think only means I’ve forgotten where I’ve placed them. Yet another reminder of how old I’m actually getting...

Celebrating the Holidays Latino Style | a Chron.com blog

Celebrating the Holidays Latino Style | a Chron.com blog | mexicanismos | Scoop.it
So for Navidad and New Year’s there was always much more formality in terms of what we did to celebrate the occasions. As opposed to Thanksgiving, when we weren’t as accustomed to what the holiday was about, much less how to properly cook a turkey, for these holidays there were always essentials in our household.

Here’s a quick rundown of what always made our festivities bien Latinas...

Miracle in Edingburg, Texas

Miracle in Edingburg, Texas | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

Whether it had been a particularly difficult year only my parents knew. We’d still managed to make it to school everyday like we normally did. On Saturdays like clockwork we’d all pack into the chocolate, our fudge brown colored, four door, rusty sedan, and drive down to the Valley Mart in town for mamá to do the weekly grocery shopping for the household. Eggs and milk were mainstays on our shopping list and so long as we had beans and rice to go along with them, we were in pretty good shape. For school there were always clean clothes waiting for us in the morning...

Growing up, Christmas with my grandparents was always Tamales, Buñuelos and Ponche. Here in Mexico with Hubby's family, things are a little different. The menu for our big Christmas Eve dinner changes from year to year. One year we'll feast on my suegra's amazing Pozole. And the next year might be an Asian inspired potluck.

I came across this image online and thought it was hilarious. How awesome would a pair of these shoes be? How soft must they feel? And then the all too telling personal question, could I resist eating them once I got hungry and didn’t feel like getting up to cook something? No sé. Maybe some things ARE better off unsaid, or in our imaginations...

Ask Juan: How to tell if you’re at a Pachanga?

Ask Juan: How to tell if you’re at a Pachanga? | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

It should be pretty simple to tell. I mean you can’t pass off a tamal or a torta for an hors d’oeuvre, much less frijoles pintos or asado… though in all fairness, word around the street is that these new gourmet food trucks are doing wonderful things with our comida. But for this question I figured (well Anjelica pointed it out to me) that it would be better to let Los Metiches answer for all of us. Check it out!
