Top Ten: Why America is a Fat Nation

Lately I've been thinking a lot about the States.  And besides the obvious things like family and friends which are givens, there are so many things I miss.  When our family friend Mark went off to boot camp, they told them to write a list of things they wanted to have to eat when they got home after having boot camp food for what seemed like forever I'm sure.  I thought it was sweet, especially when you see the adorable-ness of some of the things he wrote (mom's cooking) and think of the tough egg-head (I say that with love) who wrote them.  And let's face it, here in Holland, there are just not as many things available.  Or it costs way more.  Or it's just not the same.  Also I'm really hungry right now.  Also, I'm a fat kid at heart.  And so, without the toughness (or egg-headedness I hope) here are the...


Chipotle- Burrito Bowl with chicken, peppers, all salsas, rice, and black beans

Chevy's- chips and salsa, margarita, and flautas

Panda Express- Broccoli Beef, Kung Pao chicken, chow mein,

Jamba Juice- Strawberries Wild, no bananas, extra fro-yo

Costco - Polish Day with spicy mustard and Peach Iced Tea

Safeway- California Dreamin' Sandwich

Kraft Macaroni and Cheese

In n Out- Hamburger, Fries, and a Coke

Two Buck Chuck- Cabernet

Ole's Waffles- Mexican Omelet

Word of the Day: Ik heb honger - hungry (literally "I have hunger")


  1. You want to know something really sad...I have only heard of half of your list! The other really sad thing...where is the Fried Food!!

    Come by when you get something to eat...

  2. Stopping by from SITS to say hello! What? No mac n cheese where you are? I have a pantry full (from Costco) if you need me to ship you some...lol Great to meet you!

  3. In & Out Burger is one of my favorite places to eat ever! I wish they were on the east coast!

  4. Did you know it's Three Bucks now? Still a value.


Isn't it amazing how we all live for comments? So please...don't let me starve.
