Foodie detective quiz #1

I am a gusher---an enthusiastic, passionate person. You know the type. They are big on superlatives, CAPITAL letters and exclamation points!!! (You can never have too many of the latter.) Their friends aren't just fun; they're AWESOME! The view isn't pretty; it's SPECTACULAR! The food isn't simply tasty; it's EXCEPTIONAL!!!! Take that personality and add to it an interest in food and you'll understand why I snapped so many pictures of the meals we enjoyed (or saw others enjoy) on my recent trip to Argentina. (This also explains why, even now, a week and a half after my trip, my mouth is still watering when I look at these pics!)

Since I'm also a BIG fan of games, I want to invite you to look at all these pictures and see if you can find a common denominator among the foods. What do the foods/meals have in common? Put your answers in the comment section. I have prizes for those who have the right answer!

Hope you enjoy Foodie Detective Quiz #1! Hope we have MANY winners!!!!! (Oh, and the answer, by the way, does NOT have to do with the fact that all the foods were eaten in Argentina!)
