Things I miss about home....

This is the time of year that I miss being home.  Not only for family and friends, but just some of the foods that are comforting and I miss.  We never head home for the holidays.  Its too expensive, too difficult, and usually too far to travel. 

I do miss being in Western NY.  Home of the four time Superbowl losing Buffalo Bills.  I miss watching their games.

I miss watching the Sabres-or any hockey.  Apparently, Directv doesn't allow hockey unless you pay for it.  I'm hating it.

I miss authentic Buffalo wings.  Actually, I'd eat any at this point, but I can't seem to find any on the island.

I miss good pizza.  With a nice thick crust.  This flat tasteless cardboard stuff gets me mad.

I miss seeing Niagara Falls all done up in Christmas lights.

I miss Bison Chip Dip.  For those of you that have never had any, you're missing out.  My husband claims that its no different than any other chip dip he's eaten......yet he eats most of the tub.

I miss Sahlen hot dogs.  NY hot dogs are totally different than any other hot dogs I've ever had.

I miss Friday night fish fry-at EVERY single place to eat.  And the best was in the dumps or bars.

I miss Beef of Weck.  No one knows what that is unless you've lived there.  Its shaved roast beef with gravy (not thick) on a kimmelwick roll.  No one knows what those are either.

I miss Mighty Taco.  Best taco place ever!

I miss snow!  I love snow around the holidays.  I would love to have some now, except that the whole city would shut down!

And I miss my friends and family.  Thank goodness for phones, email, and skype.  I don't know how the pioneers did it!

have a wonderful week!


  1. The pioneers? They were lonely. That's one thing that makes technology great!

  2. It's hard to be so far away from home during the holidays especially- missing out on family and memories and comfort food. :)

  3. I am missing home too. I'd say I'd trade ya so you could be closer to NY, but I'd miss home if I was in WA too. :( May we both makes lots of new Christmas traditions this year so our home away from homes will feel more like Home!
