Your Mexican kitchen isn’t complete without it.

Mom meant serious business when it came to her kitchen curtains.

She’d wash and swap them out every couple of weeks.

Decor was basically a complete lie… Everything was fake.

Fake fruit, fake flowers. They collected dust and smelled so weird.

Your fridge was covered in these…

Why so much fake fruit?

Mom held on to expired food.

Because “todavía está buena.”

Of course, you couldn’t open the fridge without seeing this…

All kinds of recycled containers. We call it Mexican Tupperware.

It’s not a Mexican kitchen without a Mexican calendar.

To remind your mom of all your cousin’s birthdays.

Salt shakers held more than salt.

Like random grains of rice.

Yeah, we have Tapatío and Valentina, but raw chiles were always available.

This is getting real. Round one #chilemexicano #porqueno #imamexican

Because you never know when you’ll need more chile.

Let’s be real, mom used it to fake homemade salsa.

She never really used the molcajete.

There was always imported cheese.

Gracias a mi mamá. Por traerme mi queso favorito #quesoMexicano #cheese #breakfast #HappyMonday

Your tíos smuggled it every time they crossed the border.

For some reason, the stove was covered in foil.

It’s the equivalent of plastic wrapped sofas.

Mexico, Colombia, Brazil and Puerto Rico Inspired these MLS Jersey Remixes

La Casaca is a blog dedicated to remixing soccer jerseys from around the world.


If you love the colors of fútbol, they’re always tinkering with designs and asking “What if X jersey looked like Y?”

Here’s an example: La Casaca asked: “What if national teams wore jerseys designed by famous clothing brands?

They imagined what it would look like if France’s jersey was made by Lacoste, the US jersey was made by Ralph Lauren and Italy’s jersey was made by Armani. Not bad, right?

This month, the designers at La Casaca were asked by Major League Soccer to create some designs inspired by Hispanic Heritage Month in the United States. So they took a few MLS jerseys and added a Latin American twist to each of them.

Their Chicago Fire jersey was inspired by former Mexican player Cuauhtémoc Blanco and Mexican painter Hector Duarte.
