ethnic food

Note to Self:

You used the term "ethnic food" at the grocery store yesterday.  What you wanted to say was "Mexican spices" but you tailored to the vapid terminology used by supermarket marketers. You know better.  All food is ethnic.  Food never exists in a cultural vacuum.  Except perhaps Kraft Mac and Cheese.  That's pretty much tailored to a non-existent global, monolithic fast food culture.  Oh, and Pop Tarts.  Yeah, and you can add Hot Pockets to the list as well.  Beyond that, let's be honest.  All food is ethnic.
