Things I'm Not Going to Miss... Much Longer

I've been MIA for a few weeks now and thought I'd put one more post up before heading back to the States.

It's been fun, it's been real, but man, I am ready to go home.

In no particular order here are the foods I can't wait to eat:
  • brownies
  • Andrew's [In]Famous chocolate chip cookies*
  • ranger crispies
  • my family's chicken fried steak
  • my dad's augratten potatoes
  • lasagna
  • fried okra
  • fried catfish
  • cake (just give me real, honest to goodness cake!)
  • vanilla/chocolate Blue Bell ice cream
  • tamales
  • ribs
  • chili cheese dogs
  • turkey sandwiches (who would ever have thought there aren't turkeys in Europe**!)
  • Andy's breakfast burritos
  • my family's hamburgers
  • my dad's gumbo
  • sausage (the Dutch don't know sausage)
  • twice baked potatoes
  • Andy's chicken alfredo pizza
  • my mom's pepperoni/sausage pizza
  • Andy's spinach calzones
  • Andy's mushroom white sauce stuff***
  • quesadillas
  • pb&j sandwiches
  • tuna fish crackers (with Saltines!)
  • 45 Minute Cream Cheese Cake
Maybe I'll have enough time to drop a few more things I can't wait to do (like drive a car for the first time in 5 and a half months) or places I can't wait to eat or just things I can't wait for in general.

*These were once a Calvert House specialty. Alas the baker took a job working for some fancy shmancy NYC law firm, and now the only thing I have recourse to are my own unworthy version of his recipe.

**Yes, yes, I know [knew] there aren't turkeys in Europe, but I never thought about it meaning no more turkey sandwiches. I actually gave up eating sandwiches, because I couldn't take it anymore.

***It's amazingly good and the original recipe (now modified by Andy) was from Wolfgang Puck.
