A trip to the grocery store for an astronaut-to-be. Mom shops for vegetables, but there's something else going on, too...

"... Mom finds corn that's fresh and sweet.
I'm picking out my space-man fleet."

"...Artichokes for landing gear,
And mushroom bumpers front to rear."

Includes Mom's recipe for Chicken Calabacita Stew - yum!

Bilingual - English and Spanish
