The long-awaited “I’m back in the states” post… dun dun dun!
So I’ve been visiting the motherland for the past month, and I must say that I am enjoying it! I’ve missed my family and speaking English in my natural habitat! I’ve been driving all over the place, eating tons of foods that I crave while in Spain (photo examples to follow), and just relaxing WITH A/C! What a life! I’ve been spending tons of time in my old university town because this trip has made me realize that I don’t really know anyone near my parents’ houses… sad thought! Everyone is moving away, still studying, or just M.I.A.! I still know quite a few people in Athens, GA (where I studied), so I can’t stay away!
And now the anticipated food section. What foods did I miss the most? Check them out!
Steak… that looks just like this! Not “al punto,” not “vuelta y vuelta,” but in the middle! I fight a lot about meat temperatures in Madrid, but I can never get it just right! Medium-rare just doesn’t exist there.
Big Zak Snack… mmmm… this is no ordinary chicken, people! It’s delicious. The fry seasoning is really what does it for me… I used to ask for little containers of it and I put it on EVERYTHING for a few months. It was totally worth it.
Southern sweet tea (Although I do a half-and-half mixture of sweet and unsweet tea)!! If you haven’t had it, you are missing out! I could make it in Madrid, but it’s just not the same! I am bringing Lipton tea bags with me when I return… we’ll see how it ends up!
Last but not least, Chick Fil-A waffle fries. Need I say more? They are perfect. And awesome. Perfectly awesome. 🙂
And those, my friends, are the main things that I HAD to eat/drink when I came home. Did I make anyone hungry? What would you miss if you lived abroad?
