Friday's Tapas, Tintos y Tiempo


Finishing up the blogging year on the Friday before Christmas, so here's some cold soup that perfect to beat the summer heat.


But wait, it's not just Tapas, it's Salmorejo!

Some people may know, and adore, (as I do) the more well-known gazpacho, but Salmorejo is an amazing tapa (if you're close to your tapa-sharing peeps) all of its own. It's rich, delicious, regional and seasonal! (If you want a recipe, click on the wiki link above.)

I'm breaking the rules this week (already) to say my Tinto story has more to do with Belgium beer than Spanish wine, but when you run into a Dutch bartender at said Belgian bar and have a 30-minute conversation about your shared adventures travelling Route 66 from Chicago to California (his on a Harley, mine in a Mustang and 20 years apart). you know a good time was had by all as we tried to out-wow each other with cool memories.

For Tiempo? Thought I'd share this picture from Ronda, where we visited a couple of years ago. It is an amazing place, only 2 hours from here and I can't wait to go back one of these days. How do you even build a bridge like this - and who wants to work at the hotel near the edge??

Hey, I wish you and your loved ones a very peaceful and Merry Christmas, and here's to a very Happy New Year to us all.

Thank you for those wishes - which I hope also come true for you and yours.

That would be a fun conversation to eavesdrop in on.

Glad to see you're sticking with the blogging. Here's to much prolificness in 2019!
