    can't find in your area? I find this happens alot when I am in Mexico and we try different fruits and stuff. I can't think of the names of some of them but I know I will...give me a little time to get the kids settled down and dh home to quiz him on names!

    absolutely- but being in NY helps.... usually, if one looks hard enough, one can find it here. I crave Swedish bakery style desserts. I crave Carolina bbq- I want to smoke a whole pig in my back yard- but cannot in NY... Actually, Utz Carolina bbq chips... SUCH a good flavor- one of my faves- maybe my fave- can't get it here in NY.... I can find them on my commute to WV- not far outside of NY. I don't know why they don't carry them here. It's the perfect blend of vinegar and bbq. Mmmmm....

    Lynn, I get Utz chips here! (And I have a Trader Joe's too!) Oh.. and I have 2 v. good Swedish bakeries in the area. mmmm My wedding cake came from a swedish bakery... chocolate chip chiffon cake with butter cream frosting, marzipan, powdered sugar and white chocolate curls. Fabulous. mmmm.

    Okay back to Lauriann's question. I can't get lake perch here in SE PA. So when I go home to Ohio, I always make a point of getting a fried perch dinner. It's one of the few fried meals I allow myself to have, but it's a taste of home to me. Also, I went to college in NW Ohio. The grocery stores there carry canned "farm chicken", which is essentially large cooked pieces of chicken in broth. You can use it to make sandwiches, casseroles, soups etc. One of the simplest preps is to thicken it with a creamed soup and serve it over mashed potatoes. Major comfort food. Here, the only canned chicken you can find comes in a "tuna" can. bleh.

    I used to eat Yakatori chicken in Okinawa, Japan all the time, but have been unable to find it anywhere in the states. I could use a good yakatori fix!

    hey crypto, that name is always on Japanese restaurant menus around here. I have had it. Is it the same thing.... perhaps not?

    I can't really think of anything but I'm not usually looking for too many exotic ingredients.

    Lynn,
    I just saw some Utz chips in the store the other day. I've never had them, maybe I'll give them a try.

    Crypto,
    I've never had it, but see yakatori on japanese menus here too.

    I was thinking the same thing - that I saw Yakatori on some of our Japanese menus. There you go Crypto! You have at least 3 places to visit to get your Yak fix.

    Lynnie, PM your address & I'll ship you some Utz!!

    Janet, thanks for the Utz offer but it is really not necessary. I get them whenever I leave NY to drive to my parents. They have them along the way. Also, my SIL and bro are here this weekend (from NC) and just offered to bring some. I turned them down too as I love them but don't NEED them to be around all the time... lol.... That flavor is really the best! It's not so much the chip as the flavor... though it is a good chip too!


    as for Yakatori.... I have had it- and it does seem to be common on the menus around here. I just didn't know if it was something else since it sounded like it was hard for her to find.

    Ok, the yakitori is chicken on skewers covered with a bbq type sauce. Great stuff! Could be the same item. I've not see it on the Japanese menu's here. Are you sure you're seeing yakitori and not yakisoba?

    Yes, I am very sure that it is Yakitori.... I have never heard of Yakisoba. Yakitori is as common on our Japanese menus as Teriyaki. You need to come visit me in NY!
