Like Water For Chocolate

Today was my monthly book/movie get together with girlfriends. We read a chosen book in advance and come together to watch the movie version over food inspired by the story. This month we read & watched, Like Water For Chocolate. It's a wonderfully written book about unrequited love and how emotions are expressed through food. My girlfriends and I decided the book was much better than the movie... but is still worth watching just to view the differences.
For this girls day in, we all brought in Mexican inspired fare in honor of the setting in which the story takes place. Here are pics from the event:
