I'm trying to make dinner in the desert. It's really not that hard. I did bring most of the supplies from Flagstaff but forgot skewers and some other things. I went into Loa (a bigger, not-tourist town close to Torrey) and reinforced my provisions:
The list of what you can buy there is impressive:
Red cluster tomatoes for $1.49/lb
Wild mushroom mix (oyster mushrooms, enoki, shitake)
As you’d expect, there are some things you can’t get. This store serves a large county but it’s not a very populated one. The people demanding truffles are far and few between. It’s a poor county. Even if they wanted truffles, they probably couldn’t afford them any more than I could.
Things you can’t get at the Food Town in Loa:
Boneless, Skinless chicken thighs
Organic Spring Mix
Panko break crumbs.
