    Do you have a food that you simply can't live without?  A craving that just can't be met with anything but whatever you favorite food is?
    I know we can litterally live without alot of things but do you have some food that you just love?

    Coffee and flavored creamer.  Just moved to Japan and they don't use flavored creamers.  I never realized how much I enjoy a good cup of mint coffee or cinnamon spice.  I miss it terribly and plan on bringing several back with me.

      I've stopped coffee for a while now but I used to like hazelnut creamer so I hear you! Maybe your parents can ship you some in Japan!!!

        My parents have a bit of an issue with paying $20 ship out a $3 bottle of creamer LOL.  Can't say I blame them, so I shall wait patiently for Christmas!

      What does your Christmas dinner consist of? Turkey? Ham?Lamb? everybody is different would love to hear yours. We usually do the big turkey for Thanks giving and the ham dinner for Christmas.

        Being English, we don't have Thanks Giving, but I wish we did.  We make up for it on Christmas though.  I go to my moms for Christmas dinner every year and every year it's the same annual goodness.  We always have turkey, pork and some special sausage (can't remember what it's called) with apple sauce and cranberry sauce  on the side.  Roasted honey glazed parsnips, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, peas and sprouts.  Boiled and roasted potatoes and home made gravy.  A glass of sparkling wine to go with it too.  It's so good!

        Dark roast coffee I brew at home in my French press. The darker the better. The last one I bought is Nabob. I can't stand flavored coffees.

          moneyfairyposted 4 years ago in reply to this

          Wow I have never tried a french press, must look into it sometime. And dark roast most always has a smokey, rich, wonderful flavor. I'll have to check out Nabob too never heard of that brand. But then again I haven't had coffee in a while. Sounds great though ,I love the smell of coffee.
