Good timing

Terry eats chips and salsa almost every day of the week. It’s one of his main food groups. Since he has them for lunch on most days that he is home, they are a weekly staple on my grocery list. His favorites are Casa Sanchez brand, mild salsa and thick and crisp tortilla chips. Occasionally I have had to make substitutions if the store didn’t have that brand or another brand was at a much lower price. But, I am careful with what I select. He really is quite the aficionado of chips and salsa.

Today, Terry did the grocery shopping, taking the list I had made and going to our local food retailer, Save Mart. He had almost given up getting his chips as he could not find them anywhere in the store until he noticed that the delivery man he had to move for had boxes with Casa Sanchez written on their sides.

“I think you have just what I’m looking for,” he told the young man, pointing to his boxes.

“Which kind do you like?” He opened that box and pulled out a fresh bag of thick and crisp tortilla chips for Terry. It was indeed good timing.

  1. Mmmmm…. I love salsa and chips!

  2. Costco sells a really good Salsa.

  3. i love Tostios and salsa–or even a bit of Queso cheese, in a little dish and just dunk and crunch, dunk and crunch. In fact, that was my supper tonight. LOL

  4. What fun. Has he ever tried making his own salsa. It’s really easy to do.
    Thank you for your note today.

    • I have made salsa, especially in the summer when we have an abundance of ripe tomatoes. Unfortunately, I have not replaced my Cuisinart so can’t make it this year.
