The convenience store near Erica's house identifies itself in three languages ("First Foods", "La Primera", and something in Polish(?) I don't remember) so we made a dinner from the snack foods of three or four cultures:

  • two frozen Stouffer's dinners (me - turkey and mashed, Erica - Salisbury steak and corn mac and cheese)
  • Cockta - a soft drink imported from Slovenia ("caffiene and phosphoric acid free"). It was flat and the taste makes Erica gag (I thought it just tasted like flat Pepsi).
  • Plantain chips from Miami
  • Sabritones - "Authentic Mexican Chile and Lime Flavor". (Frito-Lay's Mexican brand Sabritas controls 81% of the snack food market there.) Tangy!
