Three months ’til I’m home… And I’ve already started thinking about all the delicious things I’m going to eat when I get there. (Hopefully not all at once!) Food is one of the things I miss most about the great country of America. So here’s a list I made on a flight from Korea to China a few weeks ago, after I ate an exceptionally bad airplane meal…

Vanilla bean ice cream with fresh raspberries on top. (The ice cream has to be Breyer’s and the raspberries have to be from the bushes around my mom’s house, not from the store.)

My mom’s lasagna. (Lasagna noodles cost $10 here!)

no, that’s not actually my mom’s lasagna… but close enough!

Basmati rice and fresh veggies from my mom’s garden. (You would think I eat tons of rice in Asia, but I don’t. It’s sticky rice. Yuck. I like my rice plain with butter. The only pics I could find on Google Images had the rice and veggies mixed. No! The veggies go on the side people…)

Key lime pie. (The most delicious dessert ever! Oh how I miss it.)

Good beer! (Anything from a local Asheville brewer.)

Goat cheese. (I like to make bruschetta with olive oil and garlic. They do have goat cheese at the foreign food store in Itaewon, but it’s like $12… I bought it once.)

And then there are the restaurant meals…

The Purple Onion: Black beans and chipotles layered with cheddar, sour cream, and salsa served with tortilla chips

Green River BBQ: Pulled pork with baked potato salad, fried okra, and macaroni and cheese

Chili’s: Chips and salsa and loaded baked potato soup

Olive Garden: Zuppa toscana, salad, and breadsticks

Any Mexican restaurant: Queso and other deliciousness

O’Charley’s: Spicy jack cheese wedges

Arby’s: Arby’s Melt with curly fries

Wendy’s: Frosty (the only chocolate thing I really love)

Urban Burrito (or any other burrito barn for that matter): A big fat chicken burrito

this one’s from Chipotle

Did you gain 10 pounds just from reading this?? 🙂
