A nostalgic scent

It was close enough to nose level at Fiesta Mart to attract olfactory attention. A little box of Bell's Seasoning is now perfuming a big chunk of the house. These days it's touted as a no-salt, all-natural, all-purpose seasoning. HHH used it when making dressing for roast chicken or turkey. The box used to be more nineteenth century in appearance than it is now. Did it have a little shaker hole as though it contained goldfish food? At Fiesta the space given to periodicals has been greatly reduced, so there are no more of those serial cookbooks from Mexico and no more of the little fotonovelas and cartoon books. The junky gossip magazines don't have the latest on the Gloria Trevi story yet.
