One leg, or two?
I am sure that when foreigners first visit an American grocery store, they think that some of our items are a bit odd, and they cannot imagine what we do with those things when we get home. Knowing that, I try to stay open-minded when I go to a new place's grocery store, but just in case, I ALWAYS have a camera on hand!
Our trip to Spain was no different. I scored boxes of GOLDEN GRAHAMS cereal, a bag of Chips Ahoy cookies and a few loaves of REAL WHITE BREAD like from America! However, there was one thing I encountered in three different stores that made me stop, ponder, and of course, snap a photo! My only questions about this particular item are: One leg or two? Exactly how many pig legs do you need to feed a family? And what size ovens must they own to cook these things? Or do you even cook them? Instead do you just set this on the counter with a jar of mayo and a loaf of that yummy white bread and then tell everyone in the family that they are having "pulled pork sandwiches" for lunch!?
