This month's International Incident Party (IIP) theme assigned to us by our lovely host, Penny, is nostalgia. The dictionary defines nostalgia as " A sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations." What a beautiful word, it alone evokes so many beautiful and wonderful memories from my life. Even though I haven't always been so interested or passionate about food and what goes into preparing a meal for your loved ones, I have so many memories around food. Mexican celebrations always involve food, lots of food. Every occasion grand or as small as having a friend stop by for coffee requires food to share.

What about you, what food evokes the most nostalgic feelings?
On another note I would like to ask you to stop by Priscilla's blog, She's Cookin'. She's Cookin' is one of the best blogs with substance and mouthwatering recipes around. She has posted one of my favorite recipes from my cookbook, (An Epiphany of The Senses), the Luscious Thai Chicken Pineapple Curry recipe. Please stop by She's Cookin' and say hello to Priscilla.
