We met Pepe and his wife Cherry at one of J.J.'s cousins' family gathering on Christmas morning. Travel became our topic of conversation. He is retired. When he learned that JJ and I are "South Dakotans" Pepe expressed his desire to see the Dakotas. Next year, the couple are going to Spain and Portugal after visiting Singapore, Thailand and Philippines.
My Mother loves to snack on kettle corn. This morning J.J. and I made a point to stop by and purchase a bag from Robert and Raquel at the Farmers Market. When I asked Robert, who was stirring wonderful aromatic kettle corns, what is the secret of great tasting kettle corn, he mischievously smiled and said, "the secret is not to share the secret!" Robert quickly added, "good equipments and good organic corn kernel."
Today we found a French bakery selling tasty quiche as well as a Greek vendor with a wide variety of humus and olives. My lunch was a fabulous vegan.
