When it comes to food, sometimes I take the easy route and go with pre-packaged stuff. When I found Taco Bell Fat Free Refried Beans, I had a product I could really sink my teeth into. Unfortunately, it’s all but disappeared. So…it was back to making beans at home. Continue reading
This trend is sad news indeed. There are rarely enough check-outs open and many of them are slow. I still have to un-cart, sometimes bag, and then re-cart my items. Except for the scanning, I’m self-serving anyway—without the slowdown of … Continue reading

(Monterrey, Mexico), sellers of Mission Tortillas Continue reading
