Happiness is...

...discovering a Peruvian restaurant nearby

...meeting up with family and friends to give it a try

...and then getting to eat this plate of deliciousness:

This, my friends, is Lomo Saltado: Beef, Onion, Tomato, Cilantro, and French Fries is a gravy-ish sauce, served with rice. Carbs, what carbs!?! I would challenge anyone to take a bite and not swoon from its goodness.

My sister and I also shared this:

Papas a la Huancaina: Potatoes with a creamy cheese? sauce. Oh yum. Believe's yum!
These dishes made my night.

My sister and I have been to Peru twice on mission trips. There were the foods we loved when we were there and now that I know that goodness is nearby, I'm going to have to go again! (These are not my photos...alas! I forgot my I found these on the internet.)
