Since I've lost my cook, I've been forced to find some vegetables I acually recognize, so my first stop was the tiny produce shop directly across the road from our apartment complex. Even though they offer free home delivery (it seems everywhere in India does this), I decided to walk over and peruse their wares.

Luckily, most of the vegetables were ones I've seen before. I bought some 3 apples, 3 potatoes, a handful of okra, 3 tomatoes, 1 pinapple, and 1 onion. Yum! All for less than $3. Can't beat that. No wonder vegetarians are so common here.

Anyway, the trip was uneventful, but Timothy borrowed my iPhone and took some snapshots, so I thought I'd show them off here.

A random assortment of grains - corn, rice, wheat based.
I really need to figure out how to cook with this stuff.

Peas
 (yes you shell them yourself here, though I have found the shelled frozen variety elsewhere)

I have no idea what these are - I tried to ask, but the cashier did not speak English.

Our friendly cashier.
My kids will be total brats by the time we head back to the US, because their blond hair and blue eyes make them exotic, and the people here are very excited to meet them, even if their attitudes leave much to be desired. (We went during Tyler's normal nap time, and he was cranky)

"...because their blond hair and blue eyes make them exotic..."

I heard that's a big deal even in countries like Italy where the majority have dark hair and dark eyes.

I'd probably fit in pretty well in India looks-wise.

Tyler was cranky? I don't believe that.
