It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

That’s right, folks!

It’s AMERICA week at LIDL – get excited!!


The return of the BBQ marshmallows (disclaimer: they are not BBQ flavored)

I’m so excited because the ones they have here regularly are either pink or tiny or part of some other kids’ candy thing.


The other “American” products are things that are obviously Romanian but just repackaged in the “McEnnedy” brand. The American hot dogs are identical to the same small wursts in the sausage aisle. Except these were in a glass jar. I’ve never seen hot dogs in a glass jar before.


Oh well. I found Monterrey Jack cheese slices – I bought these only because they were kind of cheap. They also had some different salad dressings, like French and Blue Cheese (but no Ranch? what the what??). There were some weird circle slabs that were trying to pass as pancakes. SIGH.

I wish McEnnedy company had actually consulted with an American to actually bring neat, unique products to Romania (like PopTarts, hello!). I’m always surpised to see what companies here think “American” is…I guess all we eat in the states are hot dogs and peanut butter.


In other news, it is hotter than Hades here.

I got a little spoiled on cooler weather and now the eye of Sauron (the sun) shines upon us once again. Being without air conditioning, I have my top floor apartment closed up with the drapes pulled and my trusty fan misting on me while I catch up on Outlander episodes.

But I’m not going to lie, I am really looking forward to early Autumn. It kind of breaks my heart a little as a Florida-born summer girl, but I’m not really feeling this heat.

Things that are great about Autumn:

  • not getting sunburned
  • breathing air that isn’t the temperature of the surface of the sun
  • not sweating to death
  • going outside and not wanting to run back inside (maybe that’s where the Transylvanian vampire thing comes from?)

Next Monday, the high is supposed to be 66 – hallelujah!
