One of my favorite things to do on a Sunday, is to go to the swap meet. Are swap meets a thing everywhere, or just in Southern California? (I think lots of places have them, but they have different names like open air markets, flea markets, bazzars, etc...). My most favorite swap meet is the Santa Fe Springs Swap Meet. It's full of bargains. This morning I got 24 pairs of earrings, a pair of shoes, 3 pairs of socks, a set of adorable nail decals, a bag of duritos (a pinwheel shaped fried wheat snack), and the best glass of lemonade I've ever had, for a measley $12.50!
But in addition to the awesome deals, they also have awesome music. Every Friday night, Saturday and Sunday afternoons, there are live bands playing. My favorites are the cover bands. Think bands like No Duh, Slaves Against the Machine, This Charming Man, Hard Days Night, and Red Not Chili Peppers, just to name a few. My favorite, though, is probably Metalachi. They are a heavy meatal mariachi band. If you don't believe me...
The Santa Fe Springs Swap Meet is packed full of amazing Mexican food, music, and culture. So, today's super simple recipe comes from Hearty Vegan, aka, Home-Cooked Vegan Comfort Food: More Than 200 Belly-Filling, Lip-Smacking Recipes for a dipping sauce inspired by the popular Mexican street snack of grilled corn covered in mayonnaise and cheese that you can get at the swap meet. And in honor of swap meets and good deals, I've got a sweet deal for one of you...I'm giving away a copy of Hearty Vegan. To enter, just follow the prompts in the rafflecopter widget below.
