    You bet. With the heat we're having these days, I'm sure the next ice cream fair is not far ahead.

    oooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I remember that!!!!! Really refreshing!!! I only had that once..in Mexico of course!

    It's great you tried "raspados", even if it was only once!! Every time I had the oportunity, I ask for one (de grosella, my favorite); it's kind of magic, the very taste of it brings me back to my childhood.

    ¡Ay chihuahua! CarlosRoberto, oyster ice cream!!!? ¿En serio!?

    Of course, the first time I heard of jalapeño candy many years ago I thought that sounded weird too but it was delicious. So maybe when we go to the ice cream fair with Laura I'll try the shrimp and chicharrón.

    I've had chicken mole but I don't really know what's in it. One of my ex-wives used to make it with a mole mixture that came in a small jar. It had chocolate in it. I've heard that there are different recipes for mole.

    Aquí también tenemos el raspado, exactamente igual que en México.

    Lo del verbo granizar debe ser porque como aquí nunca graniza, (que raro me suena) pues no ha habido oportunidad de escucharlo mucho...

    Por lo del helado de sabores
    like shrimp, oysters, chicharrón, avocado, mole
    la verdad no me anima mucho aunque no pasaría por alto la oportunidad de probarlos. De cualquier manera, prefiero comerlo en su forma natural (camarones al ajillo) y después un helado de almendras o nueces con chocolate...hummm.

    You're right, variations depend on the region mole is prepared, end even the person who prepares it, but here are the main ingredients mole has to have:

    Chile ancho
    Chile pasilla
    Chile mulato
    Chile mora o chipotle
    Almendras
    Avellanas
    Nueces
    Piñones
    Cacahuates
    Ajonjolí
    Uva pasa sin semilla
    Semilla de calabaza
    Semilla de cilantro
    Plátano frito
    Canela
    Ajo
    Cebolla
    Comino
    Clavo
    Anís
    Pimienta
    Pan tostado
    Tortilla tostada
    Chocolate
    Sal
    Aceite vegetal
    Hoja de aguacate

    Next time you come to Mexico, you have to try mole poblano, perhaps the best of them all!!!

    And actually I also prefer camarones al ajillo than in ice cream, Sandra, but it was an interesting experience to try all those strange flavors. Yes, I suppose you've never had hailstorms in Cuba, with that marvelous Caribbean climate you have, but even though in Mexico City we have never seen snow because it's hot most of the time, it hails (graniza) very frequently.

    Saludos

    Wow, I really had no idea about hailstorms in Mexico. You also have a beautiful climate for sure although in some regions it can get very cold, something that does not happen here at all. And sometimes I really feel like having some cold weather, believe me!!

    Hola CarlosRoberto:

    Fuí al super ayer para comprar unas cositas y me dí cuenta que se vénden paquetitos de una mexcla para hacer mole rojo. ¿Sabes eso? Me pregunto si vale la pena comprarlo.

    Hola Sandra:

    Te creo! Hace mucho tiempo desde que vivía en Miami pero recuerdo que el clima cambió muy poco. ¿Es parecido de lo de Cuba, no? Aquí en Texas hace frio en el invierno, no mucho pero si, a veces nieva. Pero el verano aquí es horrible. Es como un horno por todos partes del estado y en ésos dias añoro el frio.

    Por favor, corríjan mis erróres. Grácias!
    vicente

    La verdad Vicente, creo que Miami es muy parecido a Cuba pero me parece que Miami es un poquito más frio que Cuba. Este horno permanente ni te lo imaginas. Decimos que se puede freir un huevo en la acera.
