Midweek Munchies "Hungry Planet"

What wonderful foods did you bring home from the grocery store?
Midweek Munchies: What Vicki is contributing for the week:
Not long ago, Leslie did a wonderful post about her book collection and recommended Hungry Planet - What The World Eats by Peter Menzel and Faith D'Aluisio. I was intrigued, so I checked it out from my library, and I'm so glad I did. I couldn't help but draw a parallel between the people in these pictures to us Midweek Munchers -- all of us presenting the food we'll be eating for the week. So, I begin with some beautiful photos of people around the world and food they may be eating this week.
