Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

We all talk a lot about books on our blogs, but what about other things we like? Friday Favorites is a meme hosted by Epic (Chocolate) Fantasy that gives book bloggers a chance to gush about something other than novels.

This Friday's topic is:
Food (not desserts)

Even though it was Lolita's idea, not mine, this week's topic is the perfect excuse for me to reminisce about all the food I miss from the US now that I've been living in Korea for a month. And while I really like Korean food, there are definitely some things I would really, really like to be able to get.


For whatever reason, Koreans don't really eat cheese, so the only kind they sell here is this really crappy, cellophane-wrapped "cheddar". I would seriously love some grilled cheese or pizza or just cheese and crackers right now.


On a related note, cheeseburgers are delicious. Oddly, it's quite difficult to find a good burger anywhere I've been outside the US -- I'm told it has to do with whether the cows are grass-fed or corn-fed, and I stopped paying attention after that because who cares. The result is a dearth of burgers of the expected quality, which is always sad.


I love bread way more than is probably good for me. Bread fresh out of the oven is particularly amazing. Actually for this one, I don't miss the US; the country I've lived in that had the best, freshest bread was Germany. Mmmmm. I really miss having bakeries everywhere.


I'm not actually sure most Koreans know what tacos are, but you know they're missing out. Tacos and beer is pretty much the perfect meal.

I think I'll just stop here because I'm getting really hungry. This may not have been the best idea in the world, since I'm far away from most of the foods I want! Oh well, I can always dream.

Thanks for participating! Be sure to join us for next week's category: actors (male and female).


  1. Mmmmm cheese *drools*. Too bad that's not something that would travel well or I could send you some.

  2. I love bread too! I even eat bread without anything on it. And indeed germany had so many bakeries and delicious bread everywhere, although I am not a big fan of sour dough bread. I also am a big fan of cakes and cupcakes.

  3. Mmmm Tacos and Beer sounds so yummy right now!


I love your comments! I try to respond to them...eventually!

This is now an award-free blog. I love and totally appreciate that you thought of me, but I know myself better than to think I would be organized enough to pass them along, and that doesn't seem fair.
