Ah, the Food!

The other day my friend and I were walking down the street towards her house and almost missed the basket of avocados in the doorway of a store. The sign in the basket said "10 for $1." Yes, $1 for 10 avocados and they were big ones. I'm happy when I can get 4 big ones for $1. Well of course we got 10 of them. We shared them because neither of us could think of what we'd use 10 for all by ourselves. I know, they freeze, but that requires room in the freezer and I have mine pretty full right now.

Then, right behind the avocados were a box of lovely tomatoes. There wasn't a price on those so I asked. They were $1 per kilo (2.2 pounds). OK, I can do that. There are prices like that fairly regularly (well at least for the tomatoes) and when they're in abundance you can get lemons 20 for $1. That's when I make the most lemonade and lemon pie (key lime using lemons instead).

I've been here two years and I still get excited about the price of fresh produce.

I may have photos soon.
