Food that tastes like food

Another reason to love living in Mexico. Fresh fruit and vegetables that taste good and cost little.

This morning, at the local fruit lady's place, I spent 82 pesos, or the equivalent of $5.95 in USDollars.

For that, I got ... 8 eggs, 4 large carrots, 2 mangos, a large stalk of broccoli, 4 large potatoes, a pineapple, 2 bananas, 2 tomatoes and a cucumber.

At the front door this morning, I bought two kilos of strawberries (that's 2.2 pounds) for 20 pesos (about $1.45 USD).

Of course fruit lady and strawberry guy aren't the only folks that come to the door. My favorite is the bread lady ... piles of fresh donuts, sweet rolls, jelly rolls, dinner rolls, all about 22 cents each, in the back of her covered truck bed.

And don't forget furniture guy, woven blinds guy, steamed banana guy, fish guy, shrimp guy, cold drinks guy, tamale guy ... well, I've forgotten the entire list, but each and everyone had delivered a good product at a very fair price. Like, two kilos of shrimp for l00 pesos ($7.25 USD).

Ahhh ... Mexico!
