So, I promise I'll write a real blog post tomorrow...

For now, here's this!

I have a remarkably small appetite.  It worries people.  But, here's the truth:

I FRICKIN' LOVE FOOD... I just don't eat when I'm depressed (which, unfortunately, has been most of the time, lately), I also hate cooking for just myself.

Korea has made me miss food.  Even food that I never thought I WOULD miss.  I can't get/make most of the food that I love here.  The ingredients are either too expensive, or they don't exist.

I am now about to compose a list of things that I plan on eating the second I get back to Canada!

Hold onto your seats, folks.

You will notice that the things most on my mind are bacon, cheese, gravy, and sour cream... it's sad, really... don't judge me!

Basically, this is a list of demands which I will subsequently hand to my mom upon my return.

What I plan on eating on the day I get back for dinner:

Nachos with extra cheese, taco meat, tomato, green pepper, onion, olives, salsa, sour cream, and guacamole

A piece of chocolate cake

A strawberry daiquiri

Things that will be consumed within the days afterwards:

209203930205298 extra large cups of Tim Hortons steeped tea with two cream and two sugar

439482304892020 Tim Hortons honey crullers and/or honey cruller Timbits

A baked potato sliced up, sprinkled with garlic powder, and mixed together with margarine, and then topped with copious amounts of cheddar cheese, real bacon bits, green onions, and sour cream

Tater tots (WTF?  I never even LIKED tater tots before I left, but now I crave them)

Gravy.  On everything.  Mashed potatoes, french fries, turkey, roast beef, roast pork, chicken, mutha effin' bread... for serious, I am having SERIOUS gravy withdrawals

BRUSSEL SPROUTS... tonnes and tonnes of Brussel sprouts... overcooked and slathered in margarine and salt and pepper

CHEESE.  Every kind of cheese in the world.  In my mouth.  All at once.

Christmas dinner, which I expect to be recreated by my mom, in full, replete with her turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and broccoli and cauliflower mushroom cheddar cheese bake (bahaha, demanding much?)

Ukrainian food: pyrohy, pedeshke (which I am sure I am spelling wrong) both baked in cream, holopchi with copious amounts of sour cream, and kielbassa... maybe even borscht with tonnes of sour cream

Tacos... beef tacos in pita bread, with tomatoes and lettuce and onions and cheese and cheese and cheese and sour cream and cheese and guacamole

Fajitas... delicious chicken fajitas with cheese and peppers and sour cream

A mutha effin' HUGE steak... with garlic fried mushrooms and onions

Cottage cheese noodle thingy.  This has no name, we just call it cottage cheese noodle thingy... because it is noodles, bacon, onions, cottage cheese, salt, and pepper.  So simple... so amazing

One of my dad's home made hamburgers... oh mah gah

Meatloaf!  With mashed potatoes and gravy and peas!

Friggin' salad, with ranch dressing!

REAL PIZZA, none of this Korean pizza junk... though, Alex and I did have some AMAZING pizza in the old downtown one day

A reuben!  One of my mom's reubens, or, like, friggin ten of 'em!  Two pieces of rye bread, tonnes of sauerkraut fried up with onion, corned beef, swiss cheese, and mustard... all toasted together... mmmm

Tomato soup with lots and lots of premium plus crackers and a Kraft singles grilled cheese with ham

Mushroom soup, with extra sliced up mushrooms cooked into it, and cheddar cheese grated into it, with lots and lots and lots of premium plus crackers, and a Kraft singles grilled cheese and ham

A mushroom bacon swiss burger from burger baron with fries and gravy

A mama burger with cheese and bacon from A&W with fries and gravy

KFC chicken, fries and gravy, potato salad, macaroni salad

This thing that's so easy to make in the slow cooker, it's just short ribs, potatoes, sauerkraut, onions, and some spices, cooked until everything is cooked through, and then you eat it smothered in sour cream

Stuffed mushroom caps, with shrimp and crab and lots of garlic butter, topped with too much mozzarella, and baked in the oven until goldeny goodness

Sausage, cheese, and crackers


My dad's chili

BBQ ribs, my mom's macaroni salad, roasted dill potatoes

Chicken Caesar salad with Renee's Mighty Caesar salad dressing

Chinese food... Canadian style Chinese food... lemon chicken, beef chow mein, beef and broccoli

Alphabits cereal

Steamed broccoli and cauliflower with cheeze whiz melted on it (don't judge me, jerks!)

Uhhhhh... that's all I can think of for now!  Feel free to make other suggestions.  Clearly I plan on having a coronary upon my return to Canada, judging by the list I've created.


A sandwich from Subway!

A Chicago style donair with cheese from Pita Pizazz


A strawberry, whipped cream, and chocolate crepe from Crepeworks

Pepsi slurpees and a mix of 5 cent candies from 7-eleven


Cream soda


  1. that list just scared the hell out of me. I'd suggest keeping a doctor on standby

  2. Wow. You just made me super hungry. It sucks that they don't have that food in Korea!

  3. Haha, odds are, I'll eat a few of these things and then be content. They're more just things that I miss being able to have if I wanted to. I actually eat a lot healthier than this

  4. i can't officially explain why... but this makes me love you more than a little bit. xo

  5. Ahahaha, hurray! I love you, too! <3

  6. When I lived out of the country the number one absolute thing I missed was Chipotle. And diet coke (screw coke light, it's weird)

  7. Damn girl, what the hell they let you eat there?
    Gravy on Fries, Tim Hortons....where are you from, NE way..

  8. I seriously miss gravy, cheese, bacon, cottage cheese, and sour cream... and, you know, the things I can put them on. these things are either impossible to find, cost way too much (almost $20 for a block of cheddar cheese), or I don't have the things available to make them here, or you have to take a bus for two or more hours to go to a bigger city to get them, or you have to order them off of the internet.

    I eat Korean food... a lot of rice. I dunno. most of the things I cook with back home are super pricey or nonexistent here, 200 grams of ground beef costs $10 or more here. It's outrageous.

    And, I'm from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada... the coldest place in the entire friggin' world (I'm sure of it!).

  9. Wow, sounds like you better bring your clothes that don't fit you now, home with you. hehe


please leave me some love <3
