hometown food is the best.
one- because of the fact that i have to pay hundreds of dollars in air travel and can only get it at most 2 times a year and
two- because it tastes like home and takes me back to high school lunch breaks and prom dates.
every time i come home, i try to double up on the work outs to compensate for the shameless gorging but after a couple of days of that bull crap, i give up and enjoy the food comma that follows the guilt-ridden yumfest.
so if my pants are obscenely too tight when i return to phoenix, i have taco johns, burger ranch, hubby's pizza, casa mia, granny's buffet, yoke's bakery, great grandma's candy dish and the neighbor's tamales to thank.
muchos gracias. snort snort.
ps- i don't care where you're from, i'd love to hear about some of your home town favs, so that i don't feel so alone in my growing muffin topness.
