“When I came to America, I asked my brother-in-law, ‘What should I do for work?’ He said, ‘Find something you love, because you’re going to be doing it every day.’’ After twelve years in the flooring business, doing just about everything possibly related to the selling of floors, Victor of Caspian…
Hoping I will be able to find this when we are in Portland
We love a good Pico de Gallo. It’s so fresh and fragrant and can really brighten up many different dishes. Who doesn’t love sitting on the couch, watching TV, eating a bag of chips with some fresh salsa? For this post, Eric from the 333 Truck shared his food truck’s Pico de Gallo recipe.

At American Girl®, our celebration of girls doesn’t end at puberty–and now neither does our product line! Our groundbreaking new Contraception Collection, the first installment in our series of Teenage Expansion Packs, provides a gentle lesson about reproductive responsibility, while also teaching girls about our culture’s rich and varied birth control history.
Molly (Jefferson, IL, born 1934): Molly is a modern girl and is eager to be well-informed about “the birds and the bees”! Her friends have already notified her that a woman can’t get pregnant the ﬁrst time she has sex, or any time that she and her beau achieve congress while standing up. For extra security, she’s filled her Hope Chest ($72) with supplies: a box of rubber condoms, and bottles of Coca-Cola and Lysol for emergency douching.
Julie (San Francisco, born 1966): Julie is lucky to live in a time and place that offers her so many different options! Julie’s Sampler Pack ($29) includes a month’s worth of birth control pills in a handsome plastic compact, a diaphragm, a cervical cap, and a box of flavored condoms. Also included are a miniature copy of Our Bodies, Ourselves, a prescription for Plan-B, a 5-speed vibrator shaped like a dolphin for alone times, and a list of local Planned Parenthood locations. Or spend a day at the American Girl Store and Cafe! After styling Julie’s hair and piercing her ears, our “Doll Doctors” will be happy to take her into the back to be fitted for a Dalkon Shield.
Nevaeh (Coming soon: Girl of the Year, 2014): It sure is tough to be a girl in Texas these days, where an estimated 130,000 “American Girls” are without basic, preventive health care due to drastic cuts to women’s health care funding, but Nevaeh’s perky resourcefulness will always help her to get by! Nevaeh’s Becoming A Woman Kit ($15) includes a purity ring, a family planning guide, a signed photo of Rick Perry, a condom stolen from her older brother’s dresser, some contraband tampons, a free gun, anti-rape underpants, and the address of a pharmacy just across the border that sells pills to “make your period come.” Giddy up!
