Im Hungry!

The food here is amazing. Every time i eat out the food is great and its cheap and im completely happy with the restaurants here. The problem is that i cant eat out everyday. The other problem is the difference in food culture, they eat so much meat out here. Beef is everywhere and there are few beef or meat alternatives. Braai's are a frequent happening here there basically a bbq. Everyone gathers around a big outdoor grill and brings meat and cooks it. There fun and we've had a few at our apt complex since moving in. The food is good but im usually the only one that wants chicken so my options are limited. The grocery store also has a lack of other non-beef things for me to eat. I really need a trader joes about now then id be completely content. So in between all this complaining im asking for cooking suggestions. i've been attempting to cook but my skills are limited and im already running out of ideas. What should i buy? what should i make?

Now I feel like a bad mommy because we never really taught you or your brother to cook. Is it that chicken isn't available there? Or that you don't know what to do with it if you bought it? There is always pasta, soups, chili (at least while its cold) - I can send recipes. You can grill vegies (slice eggplant, zuchini, peppers, portobellos - if available).
I'm confident you will figure it out, talk to your friends to open up your options. Do you need hot sauce? Anything we can send you (non-perishable)?

What kinda food is big out there, when I was in Australia there was so much middle eastern food, like Kebabs & Curry's everywhere... What kinda stuff is everywhere out there?

Have you caved in to Mcdonalds yet?

like i said tons of meat, theres a lot of indian food and curries too, there is mcdonalds but i havent gone yet. theres a ton of KFC's here too but i havent gone there either. Theres actually one right next to where i live but theres other fast food places around that are probably better, most food is better here even if its considered fast food. a lot of the food is the same but the spices are different
