Yeah, who woulda? [Image: laff.gif]

But move to a place where there is no Mexican food at all, and suddenly you crave it in ways you never thought possible.

And Europeans LOVE Mexican food. Really. My husband made frozen margaritas once for our German and Italian neighbors (along with pico de gallo and an Americanized 7-layer dip), and we thought we'd never get rid of them!

Really, margaritas and Mexican food is the international language of love!

Why IS mexican food so good?

My brother went to school in Hawaii and he said that there isn't any good mexican food places there. All the California kids going to University of Hawaii complain about it.

My dad and I keep talking about moving there and opening up a Mexican food restaurant. We (think we) make some of the best. Between all the surfers and ex-Californians...I think it would be a gold mine.

SERIOUSLY. Although, yes, one should choose 100 calories of good stuff over 100 calories of crap, nobody is perfect.

I was really good with my last pregnancy (it was easy because I worked in a restaurant that served healthy food and I got lots of free stuff every day,) towards the very end I was begging the doctor to induce me saying, "I'm over it. I had a klondike bar and box of jalapeno poppers for dinner last night!!!! Yank him."

This time around, I'm not being so good. I'm not retarded about it. I have a good sense of nutrition, but I'm tired and cranky and sometimes I just want to eat a couple brownies and take a nap.


But back to English food...I saw canned spotted dick today. I want to try. :eats:

Some of them are, yes.  And they're already ramping up the emotional blackmail to get us over there again this year because the pound is very low.   To be fair, it's my daughter they really want to see,  but I come in handy for them as well as I'm good at getting things off high shelves and terrorizing socialist bureaucrats.

Good British food: Devonshire tea which is a pot of tea with scones, jam and cream. Yum!

The best breakfast cereal in the world: Weetabix complete with a royal appoinment emblem. In Australia they have some second rate knock off called Weet-bix everywhere and it is just not the same.

I spent a weekend in London and one in Paris and the best pastries in the world were from the London bakeries. The ones in Paris weren't too bad though.

The best pastries and sweets I've ever had were from London bakeries, too. My mouth waters hopelessly when I remember some of the biscuits I ate.
