Mexican Market

I LOVE stopping by the Mexican market near my school. I usually see some of my families shopping. I could spend an hour looking at all of the stuff and practicing my Spanish. These are some of the spices. The store is not very large, but they have every spice I have ever heard of. This is only about 1/3 of the total spices they carry.
And, tons of dried chiles...also dried shrimp, corn, fruit...
An entire wall of tortillas. When we bought them yesterday, they were still warm!!
Last night Mom and Larry came over for dinner. We had Carne Asada and Carne Pollo...muy bien! They have a beautiful meat counter and everything is priced great!!
Anyone for a "Skin-On Pork Foot?" Uh...yuck! They also have whole Beef Tongue and Boiled Pork Skin. I cannot bring myself to try that kind of stuff. Even though I'm a Kansas girl, some animal parts just should not be eaten!!!
The produce is yummy...and all the signs are written in Spanish!
It is fun to visit the Mexican market and our dinner was delicious!! Adios Amigos!
