American Food 101

Growing up in the Philippines, self did not develop a particular fondness for vegetables.

And then she came to California for graduate school and discovered:

Zucchini bread is quite good (Self’s first sight of a zucchini — ever — was the Safeway in Menlo Park)

Carrot cake is divine.

She of course had tried steak before, just not Rib-Eye.

And meat loaf!  Sort of like morcon, only better (Self eventually learned to cook quite a mean meat loaf)

She would never have thought of eating fresh tomatoes.

She tried her first taco here, in California.  It might have been at Taco Bell.  It might have been at Jack-in-the-Box.

She can’t remember trying peanut butter before grad school.  But she quickly acquired a predilection.

Broccoli — she never tasted it in the Philippines.  But The Man loves it.  Clearly, he had a very different upbringing from self’s (though he, too, is from Manila)

Another thing self was not prepared for:

RVs!  This mode of locomotion was very new to self.

RVs! This mode of locomotion was very new to self.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
