TFG, our pizzas are very different (and part of me, having seen the pix, thinks maybe you could make that at home with some experimentation?), but I feel you. Pizza is unique to the region and it just doesn't translate well.

Other things I miss:

Chef BoyArDee spaghetti sauce. It was crap in a can with fake meat, but it was comfort food.

Date Bars. From Betty Crocker, I think. They don't make the mix anymore. I found a recipe, but it's just not the same.

I can't think of anything else at the moment.

Which caf did you work in? I lived in PAR for 2 years.

I lived in FAR for 3 years, so I worked there. Worked at ISR and Busey-Evans my senior year. Graduated in 85. You?

You guys are making me homesick. Garcias. Papa Dels. I lived most of my life in the Urbana-Champaign area. My mom worked at PAR in the food service office.

*sigh* That's home we be talkin' bout.

I've moved on in life, but Champaign-Urbana will always be my home. I miss it.
