Food Glorious Food
Anyone seen that musical....what is it(not Macho Man, the title of the post)? Let's see how many of you know. Speaking of musicals, can't wait to take my man to see Phantom of the Opera if we go out to WA next September. I think I'll wait until we get our plane tickets before I start collecting my chicks. (Don't count your chickens....). I don't think I applied that right, but you know what I mean.
I've been out here for two years this month without even a visit to an American grocery store. Shed a tear for me. It hasn't been that bad. I'm a mover and a shaker and I adjust. Heck, living in Wisconsin was cultural shockish enough for me, "doenchyaknow?" Anyone had a pasty? Can't say I miss 'em all that much. A few friends bring me Reese's butter cups once in awhile, and I get some other things here and there, but yesterday my good friend took me shopping!
As you can see, it's nothing necessary for godliness, but lots of wonderful junk food that hopefully will last for awhile. Oh, let's see...Wheat Thins, Enchilada sauce, favorite Easter candy, German Chocolate Cake mix (guess you figured out it's not actually German), the list goes on and on. I did get some practical items like, Simple Green, Baby Motrin, and Orajel. No, he's not teething, but I'm prepared, buddy. I don't know when I'll go back to that wonderful place.
Last night I was prancing around the place convincing my husband and friend Kathy that Oreo cookies in Germany are not the same as American ones and making them try Fig Newtons, "See! don't you like 'em?" If they were half as excited as I was, they were doing great.
