I love little markets! I started shopping at this little mercado down the street where there are different stalls selling different types of food. There were a couple fruit/veggie people, a cremeria which sells cheeses and tortillas and bread, and some meat places (yuck...), also there are little shops around the edges selling cheap plastic/household items/toys. Saturday morning I walked down and came back with two bags and a purse full of food, for about $9. I bought Panela (a soft, mild cheese), tortillas, lettuce, carrots, fresh green beans, strawberries, a pear, green pepper, apple, orange, and peach.
Saturdays are turning into my domestic days. After I buy the fruits and vegetables I have to soak them for 15 minutes in water with this disinfecting solution. So I end up spending a good portion of time in the kitchen. Saturday was, "hey...Why don't I make soup", "Oh, I should cook some of my brown rice for the soup", "Why don't I make some of these green beans to eat with the rice"
Yay for having a job! I love the feeling of not having papers, reading, projects, and tests looming over me. Although I definitely have "homework" as a teacher, it's not the same. I feel much more free.
