I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Julie, how fun to learn a bit more about you. Blue eye shadow...hehe...since living in Peru, it is actually something I *do* wear. It is very latin. So uncool in the states though! Thanks for playing!

Thanks Gretchen, I'm sure that you look fine in blue eye shadow but trust me when I tell you that I do not.
