An Announcement

I must share some wonderful news!!! After several fruitless attempts, we were finally successful and have been able to acquire that most elusive substance!!

What, you ask??


The possibilities are now endless! I can bake cookies,using brown sugar of course, if the recipe does not call for oil! I can have perico with my arepas in the morning! I can cook for my visiting son! Can you imagine? I can even make mayonnaise since we cant find that either!

Oh boy, we can tell that we are not living in a normal country, when finding basic foods; such as eggs, milk, oil, sugar, THE big news of the day!

During the weekend I didn't find any margarine and had to buy "I can't believe, it's no butter" for the price of GOLD ;-(

Go ahead and make some perico for your boy, before you use all the eggs Rita.

Why do I get the feeling that Americans do not have any idea about how good we have it?

Great---so glad for you and I can only imagine how excited you must be.

Tina said...

Wow, I AM spoiled!! I can't imagine living without eggs!

Just Theresa said...

Well, I was going to make a comment about the eggs, but everything I thought to say had been said :)

Americans have it better than most.

I am spoiled, I can't think about living without eggs. AND

Congrats on the getting of them.

Eggcelent News!

I always think of you when I go to the grocery store. At first I felt guilty after reading your blog, but now I am thankful and also reflective of how very much we in the US take for granted.

I am all 'cracked' up over your great news!

Rejoicing with you! I'm sure you'll enjoy them!

Thank you for visiting me.

EGGS, who would have ever thunk it!!! Can't imagine life without them. Since we live in one of the poultry producing areas of USA they are so cheap and plentiful. At 59 and 69 cents a dozen they are almost always for breakfast. I know how happy you must be to FINALLY have some. We again need to remember how BLESSED, we are here in the USA to have many selections of the Basics and all the gourmet foods. UMMMM could that have something to do with my weight reaching almost 300#, OH surley not.. By the way how are the friends dangerous situtation, the permit and the Gov. approval. We continue to pray for that as well as your COMPLETE.... RECOVERY

Don, thanks for praying. I posted about that a while ago.

Keep praying!

Melissa Lea said...

Hey that's fantastic! I don't know what I would do without eggs and especially mayo!

Dawn said...

From the point of view where you can get the wrong toothpaste easily because there are SO MANY varieties, this is an incredible thought - I am happy you found some eggs!!

The incredible, edible egg! YES!

Bob; There are an awful lot of people in America who are ignorant of how good things are here compared to many other countries. On the other hand, there are an awful lot of people here, who would love to vote for Hillary or Obama who would love to make America just like Venezuela, and that is scary.

Jungle Mom: I'm glad you were able to get those eggs. Bet you will use them sparingly.

God Bless and stay safe.

We are still praying for the black beans!!

It's amazing the things we take for granted in the States. Have fun with all your cooking! :)

When I was a boy we lived on Guam. Eggs were rare there too. Late in our time there my father was flying to Japan almost weekly. All our friends and neighbors would band together and split flats of eggs, a few each.

Kinda cool looking back.

Yes, we do take things for granted here. I love reading your blog, as it is a reminder to us all. Thank you.
