Bill’s mom sent us a package of goodies from the US. Mmm, tasty US goodness. Thanks, Mom!

With this influx of ingredients, we’ll be able to soothe our palates with the following familiarities:

  • sausage balls–we’ll have to experiment with mince pork since Jimmy Dean-style breakfast sausage doesn’t exist here
  • Rotel cheese dip–Does Calvita share the meltable and chip-dippable qualities of Velveeta? We’ll find out!
  • cocktail sauce–The Irish love their prawns, but they eat them with a Marie Rose sauce made from ketchup and mayonnaise; Bill makes a great cocktail sauce with chili sauce and prepared horseradish (which I hope we can find)
  • things dipped in ranch dressing
  • tex-mexi things made with green chilies and chipotles

It’s interesting how just knowing you can’t buy something creates a desire for it. What I wouldn’t do for a Fresca!
