This past Wednesday, I had the chance to walk around downtown Torino with a sister from my ward. Maeiko has been in Torino for 4 years with her husband and daughter. We had decided to get together and walk around the city. She had mentioned that she found a Cheese shop that sells Cheddar Cheese!! So of course, we went there and to my delight, they also have Feta Cheese!! That makes me so happy. Now I can cross those 2 items of my “Can’t find in Torino” list. Next more window shopping and a search for Tex-Mex items. So she took me to another store that has import items. So, if I ever want Campbell’s Soup, I know where to go.
As we walked, I happened to notice a sign in a window that said….”Tortilla de Mais”… which is… “Corn Tortillas”. I was so excited that I had to go in. I FOUND BLACK BEANS!!!!! I was soo excited I bought a can, even though they were kinda expensive. (but everything here is expensive) I also bought some aluminum Christmas ornaments!
The rest of the day we spent walking to the Asian shops where I found Vanilla Extract and Cumin!!! I didn’t buy them just yet, because it’s not something I need at the moment. I also wasn’t sure if the Vanilla Extract was the same as what I get at home.
Now, if I can find some shortening, baking powder and baking soda…. I can start making some serious food!!
Once I got home, I debated where to put my Christmas ornaments. I decided to be like my mom…. and put them in my dining room.
I don’t know about you… but I think they make my house look Mexcellent!
