This is it. The list of all lists. I have been in Paraguay for 1 year, and I am homesick for certain...shall we say...important items.
When I say items, I really mean food.
My mom asked me to put together a list of some food and things I wanted to do when i came home for a couple weeks. Oddly enough, the 'Things to do list' was a lot shorter than the 'Foods I have to Eat' when I get home.
Here are some highlights:
Things I haven't done in a year and would like to:
Eat Tillamook Extra Sharp Cheddar (there is NO cheddar chee in PY)
Drink good beer
Go to the Movies and eat popcorn and hot dogs
Take lots of baths
Go to the bathroom in the middle of the night without squatting and getting a mosquito bite on my kashi*
Get a pedicure (although I'm pretty sure my feet are far beyond help at this point)
Food I must eat to accomplish last objective on things to do list:
Coffee - I've been drinking Nescafe for a year, people!!!
BBQ - without the sauce. so just grilled meat without chunks of fat and gristle
The Feast at the Ameristar Casino
a Chinese buffet
So there you have it folks. Just SOME of the things I've been missing. Trust me, I have lots more, but I only have 3 weeks....
