A funny thing happened when I moved to the small community of Ruskin. I began to appreciate the small pleasures of life.
One day, as I was trying to avoid the pot holes in front of the Ruskin Post Office, I accidentally discovered the Alvarez Tortilla Factory. I went inside and met store owner Tito Alvarez.
Tito opens his shop every day at 6 a.m. to make corn tortillas and tortilla chips. For a $1.75, you get a bag of the fresh corn tortillas chips AND homemade salsa to boot! The chips are fresh and crisp; and the salsa is addicting. Such a deal!
