It's the "goats" that trouble me. That and the look of that pavement by the sea (if it is a sea, and not a lake).

edited for quotation marks. Whatever those animals are, they're keeping me up nights.

Next blog will start later today or tomorrow! My communication with our next blogger has been hampered by a time difference...

We are on the road again, and our next blog will start later today or tomorrow (time difference between Minneapolis and ????).

Our next blogger will take us to:

Not Europe. Think a long time on an airplane from Europe. Oddly, I have had two PM's guessing an Italian location. Couldn't be further, but could be that the next blogger and I have really stumped you!

Well, the pork fat and bone fragment reminds me a bit of the great pork dishes I ate in Vietnam...I have no idea what the round things on the back of the plate are, either. Are they tea eggs?

They're definitely hard-boiled eggs--could be tea eggs, could be braised in soy. The meat could be red-cooked or otherwise braised and glazed ... so are we headed to China? Hong Kong?

That first picture, though ... I am so not an agricultural person, but aren't those vineyards?

Not many places in the world are farther from Italy than Napa... that is a ridiculously long plane ride (though I guess South American and Australia aren't exactly "close" either).

Practice. Do it over. Get it right.
Mostly, I want people to be as happy eating my food as I am cooking it.

I am guessing southern hemishere (summer) as the leaves are too developed for a northern hemisphere winter/spring....
the landscape does not look Australian to me....

The food looks too soy lacquered to be South Africa, but that would have been my guess based on the lushness of the vines and the long plane ride clue.

How about doctortim? Or Ce'nedra? Both are in Australia, and both cook Asian.

Walla Walla Washington would be a long plane ride, and full of vineyards. There has been a lot of whole beast eating in the state, with suposedly fabulous local pigs. (I hope to be trying one next month.)

That looks like Vietnamese Bun Rieu. This is one of my favorite Vietnamese dish.

Monday, April 7, we hit the road again, and once again, I fear a case of jet lag.

Looks bucolic, doesn't it?

And, I think this next photo indicates that we will see a food that is near and dear to many of our hearts:

Like Rachel, my first thought was England... but there are too many buildings in the landscape... and my UK friends aren't too fond of "streaky bacon"...

I'm stumped...
