Experiences Only Latinos Have Growing Up

That’s Not Butter…


You’re at the fridge, looking to find your favorite yellowy butter substitute. We always had Land-O-Lakes at my house, but whatever your family had, it was a shell game trying to find the real stuff in the fridge. Why so many containers of margarina? Does your family just go through it that fast? Nope, but we did invent recycling before it was cool to recycle. You would catch words (at least) if you were caught throwing out a margarine tub, cause that stuff’s as good as Tupperware in my house. Looking for butter? Nope, leftovers. Nope, sauce. Nope, rice. Nope, ground meat. How old is that meat?
