Ayrton, the ice tray idea is absolutely brilliant. Although my freezer is the size of postage stamp due to the fact that I have a mini refrigerator, I could probably do that with those small ice trays or one big one.
Where are you living abroad? And do you miss the USA ?
Alix, the main staple in the diet of Bulgarians is yoghurt so that is an excellent idea. They also have something called Kislo Mliako which is like drinkable yoghurt. Funny thing though, they eat it, drink it, cook with it daily around here yet there are only a few flavors and brands of yoghurt here. They are very traditional and like it plain without sugar best.
Thanks for all the tips everyone, it's helped alot:)
