Stuff we are looking forward to eating in America!
Tomato soup...and grilled cheese
BLTs...but no cheese. What are you, crazy?
"spicy" chocolate (Hershey's Cookies and Cream bar)
Salty, buttered popcorn...good with parmesan cheese
Pizza from the cafe at the downtown Whole Foods (Peter's holy grail of pizza)
Appetizers of all descriptions
Salsa...yeah, pretty much all Mexican and Tex-Mex food
Anything involving an avocado (cheese for vegans)
Samples at Costco
Costco hot dogs
Lobster (that one's just Peter)
Fresh fruit year-round
Herbs of all descriptions
Legitimate whole wheat bread
Ben and Jerry's
Fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies, and cookie dough
Pasta. All pasta. Especially lasagna
Anything cooked by my mother
Restaurants to which we look forward:
Joe's Crab Shack
Shari's (for the memories more than the food...sorry mom!)
Taco Bell (yes, that one's just me, an no, I am not ashamed)
The Whole Foods Cafe and Deli...yeah, it's that good. The one at the big mall in Tualatin has the best seafood chowder, according to Peter. I think they put all the shellfish that doesn't sell in that chowder.
Jim and Patty's
Papa Murphy's...don't knock it, much less greasy than the big chains
Bellagio's Pizza...I never got to take Peter there, gotta fix that
Izzy's...I like pizza, ok?
Mo's...another one he's never been to, but we have plans to go with a student of mine
Safeway Chinese....ha, gotcha
