Thanks a lot to all for your welcome!!!.
Answering some of the questions, no, I have never been to the States. Though my husband does travel every now and then to the States for his work and always brings me some food (I love some biscuits, pepperidge farm, I think they are called).
I am not sure I have a favourite meal. I like many different sorts of food and I enjoy trying different dishes from all over the world. Though finding the ingredients in my little town now can be a bit tricky. I used to live in Madrid where you could find stuff from all over the world.
I currently live in the North coast of Spain. Fish and seafood is a big thing here, sometimes it is cooked in a kind of cider made here as well. And every kind of meat...and stews....We do have very good ingredients. Spanish (and probably all nationalities) socialize a lot by eating....
