I have noticed that certain places have certain foods. For example: in the South they eat: grits, greens, sweet potatoes, okra and fried green tomatoes. Up north its like cheese steaks and pizza. In the northwest we eat lots of cherries, black berries and smoked salmon. Those are just observations Im sure there are plenty of other thins associated with the place you are from. Even in different countries, there are foods associated with your country. Like in the USA its apple pie and hamburgers. So tell me what foods are associated with the place where you live? How do you prepare it and how do you eat it?

In our country, as is true all over Southeast Asia, rice is the staple food. We cook it boiled. It is served with a main protein-based dish (beef, pork, chicken or fish) cooked separately, with vegetables as side dish but not always. Various regions of our country have specialty dishes they are known for, but boiled rice is main fare, always there for lunch and supper, and more often than not also for breakfast.

I grew up in the Southwest. We ate a lot of Mexican foods. When I lived it Texas, everyone ate steak and potatoes or seafood. Now that I am in the north east, we eat a lot of cheese and vegetables from the garden. I like the variety of all the places I have lived. I learned how to make so many different types of food. People seem to like it when I cook up stuff. They know it will taste different than what they usually get at home.

BTW, I love rice also. We steam it. Then I put butter and soy sauce on my rice. I also use rice in many dishes such as meatloaf, rice meatballs, strogganof over rice, rice with salsa mixed in, cream of mushroom with rice, tomato soup with rice, pot pie over rice, and a whole bunch of other dishes. Don't get me started on pasta. That is another batch of recipes.

LOL You can tell that I've lived in different places then. I was born in Michigan and love pizza. I lived in Texas for over 10 years and love sweet potatoes and okra. I've never lived in the northwest though. Right now I live in Missouri...I don't know what certain foods are associated with where I live...probably corn bread and chili...both of which I like.
