You can't even imagine doing any of that here, or at least I can't.
I think it's harder to adjust to the south when you are from the north like that. I just moved here after spending the last 29 years in Ohio-never have lived anywhere else. It is difficult and people who are SA natives won't understand. I am thinking of this little stint as an "adventure" and a way to meet some fresh faces!

I'm sure it would be just as difficult for an SA native to get used to snow and ice for long periods of time, as well. At least, that's how it would be for me. Therefore, all my moves will be made laterally! *lol*

Old school Land O Lakes ones. Not real old school. Late 80's and early 90's. I ordered one and it was published in 92. Anyway, the recipes are simple yet very good and mostly from scratch. I like that! I made this to die for strawberry pie on Sunday. I'm making biscuts from it today. So I went back on Amazon and ordered others. I can't wait!

Oh, trust me, I HATE the snow and ice. Hate is a powerful word, but for snow, I'll use it! I think it's just different from "home" and sometimes it's difficult to adjust. I'm enjoying SA as much as possible. I've already said, I'd like it so much more if my family lived here too. I'm going to feel that way for EVERY place that I move though. I'm very close with them. I'm just kind of understanding what RD is saying though. Oh...I'm NOT bashing SA, just saying that I can see how adjusting to a new place...environment, if you will...is difficult!

Whatever is on special is usually the best way to go. If you order off the menu, the pizza gets pretty pricey...especially if you have to take it home and then cook it.

New cookbooks make my heart melt. I just got the Top Chef cookbook for my birthday and I haven't read all the way through it yet. I LOVE reading them! Let us know how they are.

That's how I feel. When we move from here I'll be leaving my mom which will be very hard. Hopefully it will be back to Austin, which isn't far, but we will go almost anywhere the money will be. It's gonna be hard since I'm a momma's girl.

speaking of food.. I was thinking of a rhubarb pie yesterday and checking them out online and they're pretty freaking expensive. Anybody know where you can find one here in SA? and it has to be only rhubarb, not that nasty mixed with strawberry stuff.
My mom used to make it all the time and it's one of my favorites that I haven't had in about 25 years or so.
