Things I Miss...

Moving to Nashville and the South meant that I was going to be leaving my New England home.
I knew that it would be an adjustment to not only cultural differences but also food and all too.
I live in a major city, so while I have access to most things, there are just some things that I miss from up North!

ONE: New Haven Pizza

Brick oven, thin crust pizza is New Haven's specialty and I miss every single slice of it. There's just something about the pizza at Pepe's, Modern, Bar, even the local places in my hometown! The over one hundred year old brick oven's usually help!
This article here proves that New Haven style pizza wins! READ THIS

TWO: NYC street food...specifically Halal chicken over rice
I don't even know how to explain it because I don't even know myself. BUT I used to eat at this one cart every time I interned at the studio nearby!
It doesn't look good, but it tastes amazing...

THREE: readily available fresh seafood

I live in a land-locked state...so fresh seafood is hard to come by.

FOUR: the ocean

I like the salt water. I miss the waves. If I was having a rough moment, I would find my way to the coastline and breathing in the ocean air at any season would instantly calm me.

FIVE: Polar Seltzer

Can't find it anywhere around here. They have a ton of flavors like vanilla, grapefruit, cherry pomegranate, and I love that I don't think I am drinking water with no sugar!

  1. That halal looks amazing! And I'd miss the ocean too! Sometimes I swear I was born in the wrong part of the country!

  2. When you come to Knox I'll take you to my fav seafood place....but it definitely won't be as good as the super fresh stuff you're used to!
