    Hi, Gloria. You have a large offering this year.

    Hola Prieta,

    Me pasa lo mismo, esta vez si me dio mucha nostalgia, mi hermano me envio las fotos y me puso un poco triste.

  11. I should have thought to refer to the photos my count. It was photo #5 that I was asking about. In its lower left hand corner there are orange things with what looks like chocolate on top.

  13. Hi KAren Anne,

    If you are talking about the one next to the yellow and bright green little caskets. Those are small clay pots filled with fake Mexican red rice and green peas and Mole with sesame seeds on top. Since that is one of the most love dishes of Mexicans, some people instead of cooking, buy the miniature representation and place it on their offering to their love ones.
    The other dishes next to it represent other favorite meals like Sopes, flautas, etc.

    Thanks for coming back.

    Mley

  19. Que bella forma de recordar a los que ya no estan con nosotros, y lo mejor es que esta tradicion esta declarada como patrimonio Mundial y pues en estas fechas todos viran sus ojos hacia este hermoso pais Mexico. Me encanta el pan de muerto, aunque el sabor es totalmente diferente a el original de alla que por su puesto es mas rico :)
    soy fan de ese dulce de calabaza(el blanco con semillitas negras) y cada que puedo ir a una tienda mexicana me compro uno.

    Saludos Mely y espero que ya te sientas mejor de Salud.

    XO♥
