Good morning. Here is your first cuppa! The words on the cup say: Good day.
The text above it translates as: Don't complicate life,
Enjoy, Don't complain, learn, Don't get annoyed with yourself and SMILE.
Well, I'll gladly do that. (All of the above)
It's also famous for the awesome Winter market taking place at the end of February each year.
The stamp is the Royal Palace in Oslo.
I love all those old doors, don't you?
The other card I received this week is an image of the last Russian emperor.
Not a bad looking Young man....
But the stamps are really awesome:
The are triangular in shape and represent Russian hand crafted shawls. The one on the right is Russian lace. Beautiful.
Last week, the restaurant that we normally go to was closed for the holidays. So we went across the highway to another restaurant, where we also know the couple that run it.It's called the Tres Sierras. Here is the dining room:
And we sat here by the window:
They have a new chef and the menú looked impressive. We were not disappointed. This was my first course: (Brie cheese, fried)
That was the starter. The first course was Salmorejo (a cold soup) and the main was lamb shank. It is my favorite way of cooking lamb. Slooow cooked and succulent. Yumm!
A nice drop of red wine and I was a very happy bunny!
Today is T for Tuesday where Elizabeth and Bluebeard host any blogpost with a drink in it.
This is it for today. Sorry for being so late. I just got up late this morning and everything shifts.
We have market in our village on Tuesday mornings and they have to be off the streets by 1pm, so most of them start packing up at 12:30. So if I hurry up and get my but under the shower, I still have two hours to wander along the stalls. We are hosting a BBQ this Sunday and I am going to buy olives, pickles and salamis and perhaps some cheese.
Have a good week all,
