If you live somewhere other than where you grew up...

What foods do you miss most from your hometown? I miss so much. DH grew up in Florida and I grew up in Illinois. We both lived in both states for about 2 years apiece. From where I grew up I miss a BUNCH of foods. I miss the tacos and spanish soup from La Familia, the chinese buffet at First Wok, the pizza and spaghetti at Angelo's and most of all the Chicken George with Jan Sauce from Candlelight Inn. From Florida, DH and I miss the Hot Chicken Strips and loaded waffle fries with spicy ranch from Rib City and the BBQ Pork Sandwhich and Cornbread from Sonny's.

I think I am pregnant, and I am having SERIOUS cravings, lol. Can't help but miss foods today.

What foods do you miss?

Empanadas!! And mariscada! I am from Spain, from Galicia, so I miss all the fresh seafood and home cooked meals. The empanadas are different than Latin American empanadas (which I make often). Churros con chocolate! Omg there's so much!

 Honestly fried food.  I grew up in the midwest and I miss fried chicken and good chicken fried steak.  Sometimes a girl just needs a bit of grease in her life lol.
