This is actually a post inspired by not just my nostalgic longings for cuisine d'American but by my coworker as well. Sidebar: it's amazing that for a small town like ours and a small company like the one I work for, somehow there are TWO of us (brash) Americans working there. And thank heavens. Having Danielle in the open plan living space means I'm not always the loudest. :)
Anyway, we often erupt into oohs and ahhhs of longing when we start talking about foods we miss from back home as we suck on jolly ranchers (her husband has brought back for her from a business trip to the states). She's from Minnesota and sometimes her tastes are very colloquial. But overall, we know what each other are talking about. Together, we put together a list of 10 foods that we miss (5 each). Can you guess which ones are mine and which ones are hers? Here they are in no particular order: 10 American Foods We Really Miss!
So there's our list and I am now starving. Unfortunately I will have to make do with what's in my cupboard as I can't savor any of these items for the moment but next trip back to America will have me returning with stashes of several of these items.
In the meantime, what do you think? If you're a Brit, have you had any of these and what do you think? If you're an American ex-pat, do you agree with our list and what would you add to it?
