We Bought a Toaster

We Bought a Toaster
posting by Debi, 7/22/07

We bought a toaster two weeks ago. OK? So what’s the big deal? Well the big deal is why did we buy the toaster?

We’ve been here a year and a half and never even considered the need for a toaster. Whenever Tom wanted toast we just laid the bread across a burner on the stove till it browned, easy enough. Or if I needed toasted rolls or loaves for something I went out to the grill.

So why now did we need a toaster? Bagels! We found bagels at Mega. Mega is a higher end super market. Well higher end than the Chedraui I generally shop at. Now don’t get me wrong, Chedraui is a fine store. It’s just that MY Chedraui is on Avenida Itzaes and is older, less well maintained, and less well stocked with little gringo delicacies than the North End Chedrauis.

OK, also we had friends arriving from the States and I was trying to be sure we had sufficient stuff for mornings. I knew we’d be out and about most days so was mainly concerned with getting started in the mornings. Fruit, yogurt, cereal, eggs, and now lovely bagels; multigrain, cinnamon raisin, onion, yummy, yummy, yummy.

UMMMMMM, I smell the bagel

Sam's bagels are pretty good too and have several flavors also. The problem with us is that we eat them all smothered with cream cheese in a weekend! So we try to be rational and get them very far apart LOL!:D

We hate Costco because doesn't have bagels anymore.
