I just came back last Saturday from the USA and now, still recovering from the exhausting trip :)

This is how we got our food on our plates :D


  1. The tortilla stuff looks like a quesadilla. (Flour tortilla with cheese, sometimes other stuff if wanted)

    The big load of corn and beans looks a variation of nachos? Maybe chips with black bean dip?

    Hope you enjoyed your trip! I myself have not even been to Ohio yet even if its much closer to me compared to where you are from. :)

  2. ETE: Ah.. you are right, the word "quesadilla" rings in my ear, thanks :)
    Yes, I enjoyed my trip, it's really fun and interesting, there are so many corns plant! hehehe...

  3. :) EatTravelEat is right... the tortilla shell and cheese is a quesedilla... the other is a homemade salsa of corn, beans, and tomatoes... look six pictures below... the only difference is that the bottom one has some chicken in it :)... I hope that helps!! Love the site!


  4. Jen: Thank you, Jen :) Ah.. so the corn, beans and tomatoes is homemade salsa. Good to know :)

  5. everything looks good..I love fresh cherries too!

  6. foodbin: I believe the food is high calories :D

    peachkins: *hi5* for the cherries :)

  7. ooh the sloppy joe with the blueberries and the cherries is my favorite plate- it's just so colorful!

    I think it's funny they gave you a small quesadilla and served it ON a slice of bread :-)

    Haven't heard from you in awhile. miss yoU!

  8. monica: Oh the small quesadilla on a slice of bread is just my version because the quesadilla is so small so I add a bread, hehehe :D
    Sorry for not visiting your blog and also hardly updating my blog because of being away in the camp. Miss you too! :)

  9. Haha, what did you think of all this American food? Were you missing your food carts?

  10. mica: I think American food is kinda like fast food, hehehe... quite fatty and high calories :P Guess what? I gained 5 lbs just by eating all this food!!!

  11. Wow, just how many plates are there? :P

  12. Hi Selba,

    Since you said you were in Ohio...I understand you were in Longaberger Land that's why you had all the baskets in your first post on the 4th of July.

    I'm not sure why you were visiting Ohio but I'm guessing the food they fed you was mostly for the convenience sake and the mass amounts of people they were probably feeding. Which is why you had all very simple, basic foods. This isn't the way we all eat. You basically had picnic foods (not what we eat in daily life).

    Was this your first time to the U.S.?

  13. tigerfish: Lost of counts, hehehe...

    KTDGD: No, it's not my first time to the US, but so far, based on my experiences of eating meals in the US (either at the camps or staying at American families), this is the kind of food that has been served ;)

  14. The camp food looks really healthy! (www.cariso.net)

  15. cariso: High calories, that for sure! hehehe...
