The other night Phil asked me when I was going to get pregnant cravings. I asked him what he meant and he was like, "you know, where I have to drive out in the middle of the night to buy you something." I have had foods that I've wanted at certain times but no desperate cravings on which I've sent him out to make purchases on my behalf. Frankly, almost everything I would "crave" has to do with food/restaurants that are in California and NOT anywhere near us in Colorado. One of the things I have been wanting since moving to CO is a good taro boba smoothie.
Since moving to rural Colorado, there are many comforts of the LA area that I miss. Most have to do with either food or shopping. One craving that I have decided to satisfy by Internet is my love for boba. Boba? you may ask. If you're not familiar with it, boba is made of large balls of sweet, chewy, black tapioca that sit at the bottom of a smoothie. Phil's and my favorite flavor of smoothie is taro. It makes a delicious pretty purple drink that's hard to describe but tastes incredible. If you ever come across boba at a Chinese restaurant or anywhere else, you should try it! It's great! Most people whom we introduced to boba enjoyed it. You drink it through a fat straw that the boba are able to fit through.
Well, tonight, I ordered some taro smoothie powder and boba online and I'm soooooo excited to get it! I haven't met anyone in CO who has even heard of boba, let alone who sells it. Fairly soon I will be able to satisfy my desire for this delicious drink in the comfort of my own home.
