It Did Not Hit Me Until Today. . .


Me:  Hi, I looked everywhere, but I don't see any tortillas.  Do you sell tortillas?

Grocery Store Clerk:  Uh, yeah, you mean like those shell things?  They're in the refrigerator case next to the milk.

Apparently, I moved to Pennsylvania, where Tex-Mex goes to die.

:) well, at least they had them! We have a small Mexican area in my little grocery store here in Ottawa... little by little, you will be able to establish routines and find food that is not easily found...

Sadly, there are no corn tortillas. I guess I could look for a Mexican grocery in Pittsburgh.

I had to laugh out loud. What culture shock indeed.

How funny! At least you have other places you can find it.

hmm...that would be disturbing. Maybe you will have to make your own?

Wow. That should be a crime. But, I'm with GJoanna. You should make your own. Corn tortillas are super cheap and easy to make. And they're SOOOOOO yummy. Especially when fried. My suspicion would be that flour tortillas would be equally easy and cheap. Great for kids to make too.
