    Thank you @Terry Page , I truly find your and Lisa's travels fascinating. I have always been interested in the populous of the different countries. We hear much about the upper echelon, and the geographical points of interest, but rarely do we hear about the day to day activities of the common people. :confused:

    How long have you been globe hopping? I think I remember you saying that your profession called for you to travel. Is that where you picked up the travel bug? Have you considered writing of your adventures? Now I'm wondering how many languages you or Lisa speak. I would be frightened to visit countries where I couldn't communicate. :rolleyes:

    I'll suspend my further questions until you are settle at home again. :p

    I recently purchased a toaster oven for cooking small portions so as to save electricity/cleaning/heat when using my regular oven. Here's a quick, easy, no muss, no fuss way to cook a salmon dinner wrapped in parchment paper...

    More of a Late lunch but I just bought myself a rotisserie chicken. I'm sucking on the wings and his highness, Pickles is dining on the breast! :)

    I used to do the parchment paper salmon @Lara Moss but haven't in awhile. Just too hot to use the oven in Fresno but you gave me an idea with the toaster oven.

    I did have one but I think I let my ex take it back to Ohio. :(

    Much better than a plain old rotisserie chicken....I didn't bother with sides....just meat.

    The national dish of Peru is roast Guinea pig, it even features in the paintings of the "Last Supper" where the main dish is Guinea pig.....
    We did try it on one occasion and found it similar to pork really.....

    You've given me great idea @Sheldon Scott. My favorite beans to cook are navy. And since my Honey brought home some free ham steaks and I have a package of dried navy beans and some cole slaw mix...I think that is what we will have for supper today. :)

    @Babs Hunt .....I was raised on beans very early and still a staple for me. The hubby likes pinto beans with hamburger onions and link sausage...this is meal all by itself.
    And even navy beans are good like that.
    Latley I have made red beans or pinto with out all that artery clogging other stuff and they are still good...specially with cornbread and soft fried potates:p

    I like to cook dried beans and put it over rice Gloria. But navy beans are my favorite to cook, they do well with chicken sausage, leftover turkey, ham bones, and even shrimp! :)

    Two days ago I made homemade spinach and ricotta cheese raviolis, and a, from scratch, marinara sauce. After I boil the ravioli, I like to roast them just enough to give them a bit of crunch, and it gets rid of the stickiness so you can dip them in the sauce.

    Bobert liked my marinara sauce so much that he actually agreed to my adding meatballs to it yesterday, and then putting all over wild rice. Bobert had this rule that he never eats leftovers. :confused: So this was a bit of a breakthrough for him.

    Tonight I'll be fixing him a nice large salmon steak, a salad from my tower garden, and candied carrots. So I think I'll fix myself a salad with avacodo and tomatoes on the side. :)

    My husband likes rice with them also...I rather crumble up the cornbread in the beans and eat away:p

    We usually add ham or bacon, bay leaf and summer savory. Serve with hot peppers and chopped onion.

    Is this weird ? I do not like the stems on spinach leaves when making a salad...so I remove them. Please tell me I am not throwing away the most nutritional part:D
