I think I just ate a Bologna Sandwich

Not 100% sure but pretty sure. I thought I was buying a ham sandwich - at least that is what the picture looked like:) After biting into it, I also found egg. I threw it out on my walk home, but I should have kept the packaging to look up the word and memorize it for all future sandwich buying! I just looked up bologna on Wikipidia and I think I'm going to throw up... This is what they had to say:
"Bologna itself is made from leftover beef, pork, turkey, and/or chicken. The meat is first finely chopped, with water, salt, seasonings, and other additives, the blend then is stuffed into casings, and then fully cooked, with or without smoke. It is very similar to a hot dog, excepting the shape."

Yuck. No wonder I haven't had bologna since I was 5. I don't eat hot dogs either for the same reason.

Other interesting things I bought at the grocery store today:
  • Mayonnaise (again I think it is mayo - there is an egg on the packaging) in what looks like a toothpaste tube. I'll let you know how it is.
  • Peach Yogurt - well I thought it was Peach Yogurt - I opened it when I got home b/c I threw out my sandwich but it is of a gel consistency - I'm going to let Nathan try that one first:) He has a stomach of steel.
  • Diet Coke! Yeah, Diet Coke! They call it Coca-Cola Light here but as always no matter where you go it looks and tastes the same! Thank you Coca-Cola. Thank you! And a bonus - with the conversion the .5L is basically 99 cents! So I can drink as much as I do at home!
So I have decided that I like to go to the grocery store here! (At home it was one of my least favorite things to do, but here it is kind of like an adventure:) You never know what you are going to find! Also, this is a good thing b/c I have to go almost every day - basically b/c I can't carry that much stuff the 1/2 mile I have to walk to the grocery store!
love and miss, mandy

I'm reading and catching up and dying laughing. I love the recounts of your adventures. I'm especially fond of the "food tales." I remember being in Spain and encountering many mystery meats and TONS of eggs. Eggs on french fries. Eggs on sandwiches. Ham sandwiches with butter any mayo - aka white death. Needless to say, it took me about 4 years to eat an egg after I returned to the US and I've never recovered from the mayo encounters.
I can't wait to plan my trip over. I love looking at your pictures as they are bringing back many memories of Switzerland. Maybe I can time my visit with the jazz festival in Montruex. I missed that last trip.
So wonderful to hear that you are settling in. Figured out where to put those clothes yet?
Love ya bunches and can't wait to hear about more adventures. :)
