The United Nations in the Supermarket

As the cultural food choices expand in my city, my reasons to drive to the ethnic markets in Atlanta shrink. Oh, I will still find a reason, but the new Publix Supermarket in Hixson Tennessee has provided a surprisingly wide range of international food options. Some of my finds:

Prepared Indian meal mixes

Cuban/Latin food in the freezer

Jamaican canned fruits and vegetables.

English canned goods. (Do Mushy Peas sound non-appealing to anyone else or is it just me?)

Indian spices.

Plus they are super-de-doooper friendly in there, and you don't need a Bonus card to realize savings (and have your buying preferences tracked). As the cashier said when I asked if I needed such a card, "No, the specials are for everyone." Egalitarian. Yes.

Oh no. I have been branded prejudiced against peas. I shall never be able to look the Green Giant in the eyes again. : (
