Five Things I Miss
The things we miss because we aren't in our native country or maybe just not in our area of our native country can seem insignificant to those with the ability to get to them easily, but if they don't exist here and now they become larger than life. Dixie Peach passed-on this meme and I thought I'd add my 2 cents. I've described my little corner of Mexico as being like a small town in Montana. Ranches, cowboys, open spaces for miles and miles, and far and few conveniences. I have way too many choices of tacos, hot dogs, hamburgers, fish, and no choices for other foods. Luckily I can get up to the Safeways and Costcos pretty easily and re-stock what I can't live without by making a "run for the border."
These are the foods I usually restock and I miss:
Bread (SOUR DOUGH)
and I usually grab a deli sandwich before returning.
I miss shopping at Trader Joe's
I miss smooth highways with shoulders
I miss huge salad bars
I miss variety
