  5. Very Interesting Sandee. I bet you are going to knock us for a loop on some of those. Those that you think come from a country really isn't, just like the pasta one. I'll wait until you give the answers before I make any comment but I'll bet I'll probably be wrong even the pasta and I'm Italian. Have a wonderful day my friend. See ya.

  15. I always get so confused...especially when it comes to what came from Italy. I always assume pizza, spaghetti, and anything we consider "Italian" came from Italy, but I think pizza isn't? I can't remember where it originated, though...

  21. Seymour doesn't care where food originates (long as it isn't incinerating in my kitchen); he only cares where it winds up ;-)

  22. And Brussels sprouts don't come from Brussels, either. Strange how the names get attached to things, and we really don't know where it came from.
