Canadian milk is so good and super fresh. I have a strange habit of dipping my Lays potato chips in my milk. I miss the habit, all though my waistline does not.
#2 Packaged Gravy Mix
Open a package, throw it in boiling water and stir for lump free gravy. Oh how I miss thee in the land of French fries. Put some shredded Mozzarella on top and you have ooey, gooey, melty heaven.
#3 Big Containers of Salsa Sauce
We go through so much salsa sauce. It is expensive and has a funny curry taste. I miss Safeway brand, medium hot jug of Salsa with corn. Scooped out with fresh corn chips is always a must have in our house.
#4 Big Blocks of Cheddar Cheese
They do not have cheddar cheese in France. Why? Cheddar, GB is just a few hundred miles from here, right?
#5 Big Blocks of Mozzarella Cheese
The kind of cheese you place in the middle layer of the lasagne, so when you cut and serve it makes long strings of cheese. I must be hungry as I write this food list, huh?!
#6 Peanut Butter
Alfonz promised to comment on how much he hates peanut butter in the land of Nutella. Personally, I believe that chocolate and peanut butter are best friends and the perfect snack. All natural Safeway brand is my craving.
#7 Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies
Jeffery, our lovely friend, said he could not find any big, chocolate chips cookies, and he is right. I have not seen any in the bakeries or the stores since we arrived. Then, on a discount isle at the Intermarcher I saw them! Pepperridge Farms macadamia nut with milk chocolate and Dark Chocolate huge cookies for 1Euros. I bought him one and they are my bribery to get him to visit the new house. Jeffery, if you read this, I have a big glass of milk waiting for you as well. See you Sunday for Hungarian Goulash lunch.
#8 Cranberry Juice
Alfonz’s drink, vodka, soda, splash of cranberry juice and a twist of lime. Why oh why are there no cranberries grown in France??
#9 Clamato Juice
This really should be #1. The juice mix of clam and tomato, to mix with vodka, tabasco sauce, celery stick and Worcester Sauce to your glass rimmed with celery salt. OMG, I could kill for one of these today!
Okay #10 I miss my mommy. Today I was unpacking my house and kept thinking, my mom would totally have this stuff put away in a few hours. I was working for the first time during a move without my mom’s wisdom and impeccable organizational skills.
