Happy Wednesday, folks!
Before I get into today's post, I'd like to let you know that I am also guest posting today on Samantha's blog, It's All In The Details. So feel free to hope on over there and read my guide to partying!
For some reason, I have been itching to try new food lately. I'm not sure if it's because I'm over American cuisine or if my taste buds have a yearning for greener pastures, but I feel as though I want to explore every foreign type of food there is!
1. Cajun Food. It's sad, but I've lived in Texas all my life and I've never tried Cajun food. Texas is right next to Louisiana and you'd think I would have had a chance to try it after 22 years but sadly, I haven't. I haven't actually spent any significant time in Louisiana other than to drive through it on my way to another state, so that could be a major factor. That point aside, I've always wanted to try gumbo! And I want to try the authentic stuff. Road trip to New Orleans, anyone?
2. Mediterranean food. Now, I think I've tried the college cafe's sad excuse for a gyro before, but it didn't sit too well with me. This is another type of food that I want to try authentically. Give me a Greek salad or some lamb kebabs, stat!
3. Thai food. I actually went to a Thai restaurant the other day, but I was too chicken to order something new so I just got fried rice with shrimp. But I would absolutely LOVE to try some Pad Thai! Or better yet, I'd love try my hand at making it, though it wouldn't be authentic that way.
When thinking of this list, it was actually difficult for me to come up with international foods that I haven't tried. I'm proud that I have actually tried a lot of international cuisine. The list includes Italian, Caribbean, Vietnamese, and Indian.
What international foods have you guys tried? What types of foods are you dying to try? I'd love to know!
