home for christmas

Grocery shopping in middle America.

Grandma: (ticking off a list) Let's see...cole slaw, canned fruit, saltines, white bread--
Mom: (interrupting) Is there an organic aisle?
Grandma: (shudders) Mina, dear, is there any favorite food that you'd like me to buy for YOU?
Me: Um...diet coke?
Mom: Look! Shiitake mushrooms!

my family is from southern Illinois, one of the bigger test markets for new snacks. this means that I have eaten pizza-flavored Campbells soup and pickle potato chips.

Have you ever had pizza flavor-blasted goldfish? They are DELISH! I wish I had a flavor blaster that I could apply to all foods.
