Food, Qatar

You know you’re an expat when

August 21, 2013

You know you’re an expat when you get excited about American food on the grocery store shelf.  Almost since the day I arrived, I have been looking for canned black beans. I checked several places.  Most people told me they don’t exist here and that I would have to find a bag and cook them myself. Of course, I didn’t even see dried black beans!  The other piece of this is that everyone kept telling me about this grocery store called Megamart and that they have lots of American and British food.  Last Thursday, I headed to Megamart with a co-worker.  Megamart is heaven to an American grocery shopper!  I found the canned black beans! Plus a ton of other goodies!  Some of it I assumed I wouldn’t get again until I returned to the US, particularly Velveeta and my favorite butter, Brummel and Brown.  Here is some of my haul:
