Things we miss about Arkansas...

Don't get me wrong...we're really enjoying our time in Utah. We are discovering lots of awesome stuff out here. But there are some things that Arkansas has that Utah doesn't...I'll mostly be focusing on food stuff here.

**Awesome fried catfish. We miss The Crooked Hook in Jacksonville but we REALLY miss the gas station in El Dorado. I don't know the name of it. But I know that they have the best catfish in the entire world.

**Good, cheesy Mexican food. We mourn the loss of Casa Mexicana.

**Cheese dip at Mexican restaurants. They just don't have it here. They do bean dip. UGH. Again, mourning the Casa.

**Mexican restaurants in general. Most everything here is a Mexican-grill type place. I want to sit down and have a little guy bring me a bowl of red salsa and a basket of chips without charging me extra. Is that too much to ask?

**U.S. Pizza salads. I'm sure there's a good salad somewhere around here. But not like that.

**Pork fried rice. They do ham fried rice, ham lunchmeat. And they don't put peas and carrots in it. Weird.

lol - I'll have to take you to some Mexican restaurants around CO sometime (I don't know SLC very well, but I'm sure there are some great ones, you just have to find them). I have never had Mexican food in AR that was as good as in CO (of course in Greeley - where I'm talking about - the population is about half white, half hispanic). But, can't help you with the catfish! ;)
I miss fried crawfish from Lousisana..... yummmmmm
