mexican market.

I spent the afternoon with "cinco ninas" a while back and documented some of our adventures while at the Mexican Market. Our family friends introduced me to an amazing Mexican donut called Conchas. They are a Mexican shell-shaped pastries that are sold in Mexican bakeries (panaderias). All the pastries were cheap cheap cheap and such a good deal! The girls love that these donuts look like a, for lack of a better word, boob. HA. They taught me that the best way to eat them is to zap it in the microwave for a little bit so they are super warm and go a little softer. They were soooooooooooooo good. So if you find yourself around a Mexican Market or bakery, get yourself a Concha! Or some "Cha Chas" haha
It is perfection really.
