El Supermercado

I LOVE the grocery stores in Mexico (supermercados). It's like a treasure hunt, you never know exactly what you're going to find (or where to find it). Some of things you find, you aren't sure what they are. And unless you're in the rice and beans section, or the peppers and tomato sauce aisles, there usually isn't much of a selection - and that's ok. The fruits are gorgeous, the tortillas fresh and the people are helpful.

One of the best things is, the prices. Today's store run was 1038.77 pesos ($30.28 USD), and here's what I got:

  • 4 Avocado
  • 6 Limes
  • Cilantro
  • Mint
  • Red and white onion
  • 4 Potatoes
  • 1 Pineapple
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 4 Tomatoes
  • 2 packages of fresh tortillas
  • 1 box of pasta
  • 1 loaf of bread
  • 2 steaks
  • 2 packages of beef for tacos
  • 1 package of turkey
  • 1 box of cereal
  • 1 package of cookies
  • 2 bottles of wine (!!)
  • 1 6 pack of diet coke

I suppose if you want to add on the $3.00 Uber ride each way, it would come out to $36.00. I figure this shopping trip would have been about $80-$90 in the US.

All fruit and veggies that come into the boat get washed and rinsed before being put away - just to make sure the bugs and anything else undesirable are gone.

Boxes get removed from the boat right away. Cockroaches and other critters like the cardboard.

Tortillas made today!

Anyone want to come over for tacos tonight!?

  2. If we are working in an organization it is lots of situation that we have to go with. We must be adjustable to cope up with any kind of situation. We can call it as an illusion of control. Thank you for describing more on that herejogos friv gratis 2019
