    I was gonna say sea-food.
    but after thinking about it we don't have much of anything here.
    no take out/delivery of any kind.
    the burger joint is about the only fast food in town.[only it don't have a drive through window]
    the Mexican restaurant is open sometimes, and not sometimes, you just have to go look.
    the best semi-fast food around here is the taco wagon in the next town over but you have to work on your Spanish a little bit to get what you want or they put too much rice on your burrito.

    sometimes our little grocery store has crab legs they get from somewhere in Alaska during the season.
    but it would be cheaper for me to go up there and throw my own crab pots in the ocean.

    what do I miss?
    I pretty much miss everything food wise.
    chili peppers of any sort.
    Seafood
    Pizza.
    Chinese.
    Thai.
    well there is a thai place over in Lava but the cook ain't ever been to Thailand and has no clue that his '10' hot is a '2' on a good day, and the spices are all wrong.

    thankfully we at least we have access to Cache Valley cheese, sorry Wisconsinite's but it is at least 5 times better.

    Baked Goods, good lord,,,, bleh.
    how hard is it to make a decent cookie.
    it's all an educated guess,,,, till the trigger is pulled.

    this opinion brought to you by mister low-tech solution..

    Too bad everything else about Iowa was awful; the weather, the environment, the small town white trash, the smell, the lack of wilderness, muddy and gross water, my ex-wife's family, etc.

    Then I moved to AZ for several years and you could find a good ribeye every now and then, but not often. Now that I've been back home for three years, I've yet to find a good ribeye.

    And in my area there aren't any seafood places. It's weird. I live in a tiny town of 1200. Within 15 miles of me are two college towns with a population of around 60k. We are roughly 300 miles from the Pacific ocean. Not even a crappy seafood place like Red Lobster or Long John Silver's. And no Olive garden. No Burger King, no In-N-Out Burger or Whataburger.

    Oh, well. The nearest town does have five pot shops and not a single gun shop or FFL holder...
    Gotta add bone in ribeye steaks. From grade school past college we had feeder beef on the farm, 160-190 a year. Always "hard finished", ground corn and hay ration from 700 lbs. up to 1300-1350. White faced Herefords. We always kept 1 to 1 1/2 steers for our own freezer. Had a college buddy always criticized me for ordering well done when we went into a restaurant, brought him down to the farm and had dinner one day, either steaks or a roast, he was stunned. He said he never had beef that good before in his life, he told me that now he understood that great beef did not have to be rare to raw to have any flavor. Depresses me to go into the meat markets now and see them trumpeting "grass fed". People don't understand what was graded prime today was choice in 1975, and the old prime doe not exist anymore.

    Agreed. Even the few chain stores that carry Prime don't put forward a very good example.

    You've got to go to a specialty butcher and pay super primo for some real Prime.

    we used to get fay-go at the local dollar store every now and then.
    I'd grab a case or two of different variety's and take them over to a Michigan bud I worked with in Wyoming.
    I developed a liking for the rockin-rye after a little bit.

    the look on his face was priceless when I gave him the first mixed flat of the stuff.

    Good Tex-mex and good thin crust pizza (best I had was in Ohio at a place called Cameo's). Grinders (D'elias in Riverside, CA) and Van De Camps Cinnamon crumb crullers and Mr. J's doughnuts in Redlands, CA. Fresh seafood off the Oregon Coast (Fried Halibut was outstanding). Good BBQ (Texas style or memphis style) although I will say my smoked pork butt or smoked corned beef is da bomb!!

    Sounds similar to tourtiere although those are baked. Sugared cruellers you cant find here. I miss Coffee Cup Cruellers in the morning

    If you travel out of New England there are 2 things you CANNOT get: lobster rolls and Moxie. If you have never tried Moxie, think liquid tires would taste like.
    It is definitely an acquired taste.
