Warren for president…Iguana anyone...

"No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size.  Government programs, once launched, never disappear.  Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth." -Ronald Reagan

Warren always comes to help me set up when I have to take photos for our new member's class at church.  He sets up the background, then poses, so I can make sure my camera settings are correct before everyone starts arriving.  He uses this same pose, always has on his sunglasses, but this was the first time in this T-Shirt.  I decided I would get creative with my photo...Too bad he's not really running for president.  He'd have my vote.

Write in your vote…just kidding!
On to the iguana story...I told my aerobics classes, water and land, about the wonderful turkey recipe with only two ingredients.  If you haven't tried it, you need to, because it is amazingly good. The recipe opened up many discussions about other two ingredient wonder recipes, but the biggest discussion was about iguana.  That's right…Iguana.  Think about serving it for your Easter dinner.

It seems a local grocery store here carries green iguana in their meat department.  All of us wondered how one would go about cooking it, and decided the crockpot and a stick of butter was the solution.  Later that day, the lady who told us about the iguana meat sent me a photo via iPhone.  I cannot image eating this…but it must be a delicacy…look at the price.  Almost $10.00/pound.

In English it is Green Lizard…In Spanish it is Iguana Verde.
There you have it, Easter dinner menu: solved.  Who to elect for president in 2016: solved.
