Mexican Pizza



Like almost everything else here in Mexico πŸ‡²πŸ‡½ it comes with a side of salsa - and while it may look a little different than most pizzas πŸ• in the States, it's basically the same thing (in my opinion). 

This bad boy cost us 200 pesos, which included the 15 peso tip to the delivery driver (about $11 USD). And it's been a tradition since we first came to MazatlΓ‘n last November. 

Actually, we've had a long standing family tradition of pizza and either watching movies or playing games on Friday nights. But when we moved to Mexico, I switched our Netflix account to Spanish, and only let the kids watch TV shows and movies in Spanish. 

Except for Friday nights. Friday nights fondly became known as "English Movie Night" at our house. Even during our time home in the States for the summer, I did my best to have them watch everything in Spanish... except for on "English Movie Night" πŸŽ₯  πŸΏ 

Ordering the pizza was probably one of the biggest challenges we faced as a family when we first arrived here last fall. But thanks to WhatsApp and Google Translate  we can text our order instead of having to call on the phone ☎️ 

Because let me tell you... understanding Spanish is hard enough in person, but over the phone, without the help of hand signals and pointing... let's just say it adds a whole new level of difficulty. 

So the tradition continues, on this second time around living abroad. English Movie Night. 

And there is something satisfying the rest of the week when they watch tv πŸ“Ί in Spanish. It's like, I feel less guilty about letting them watch an hour or two of television some days because, hey, they are learning a second language at the same time!

Have you switched your kids' television time to a second language? Are you considering it? Tell me your thoughts below πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ
