Another of our vacation accomplishments was taking the gold line train to East LA to hit up the Mexican mall.
The fruits of our labor were myriad. James got a realistic looking prop gun for $6, I got dulce de leche, which we ate over ice cream and brownies on New Year's Eve, and this candied lime. My mom translated (she's fluent, but really coy about it) the lady's instruction to eat the whole thing, peel and all. I was dubious, but, seriously, if you ever come across a lime stuffed with coconut, do us both a favor and eat it with the peel. It's amazing.
