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
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
