Or rather the mountainside and the seaside meet.
Are you with me on this one yet?
Yes we finally met up, a Chica and a Promenade on a sunny afternoon sitting on a terrace overlooking the English Channel and what better way to celebrate than to have a glass or two of rosé (or should I say rosado?) – a perfect summer drink.
And in true blogging form, we swapped stories and news and yes of course a present or two. But a bit of scene setting first.
I had a morning off so raced up to my allotment for some much needed weeding and watering. An hour later I was on my way home, rained off and thoroughly soaked as I got caught in a huge downpour. But I had had time to pick a few of these.
My thinking was they still need thinning out, eating while they are at their best, besides there is always another jar that can be filled. And then, maybe just maybe, my blogging buddy would like a few and if not maybe her mum and dad would tuck in. You see gluts are great, you get to share them.
And thank you so much to Chica for my lovely pressies – beautiful Saffron, I know I’ll be referring to your post on how to cook paella, maybe just not on the scale needed for a village fiesta. I’m also hoping that the headwear isn’t absolutely necessary.
And the Torta de Aceite. Bonus! As soon as I opened the packet this morning I smelt the olive oil and almonds. Aaahhh ! I’ve never had these treats before and I think I’m now hooked. A cup of coffee and a torta, a perfect breakfast for a promenader who is ever so slightly hungover. You see after we parted I went to find my erstwhile partner who was watching the Murray match in the pub, we don’t have a TV, so I settled myself in, glass of dry white at my fingertips…….
Lovely to have met you Tanya (and of course your Bestie) and looking forward to catching up again soon !
And tomorrow’s match? We’re inviting ourselves round to a friends for the afternoon – they have a TV and I can put the kettle on. Come on Murray!!
