Phil didn't half burn his mouth on his noodle soup starter
My....ahem.....interesting dinner of eggs and chickpeas....now what came first? The chickpea or the egg?!
Coffee and my journal - a great way to spend a few hours
Phil's"fabodas".....sadly it had big chunks of meat in it, otherwise it looked like a pretty nice bean/tomato dish...oh well!
Trying a local speciality....the hot chocolate....it was thick like soup! Spoon required!
Phil joining in the spoon fun.....coffee with a spoon...hmmmm!
Dinner for two in our house. We had huge salads most night with seven grain crisp breads, lentils, pickles, salsa, spinach, onions, peppers, sweetcorn, sorrano ham and cheese for Phil, tomatoes....anything but the kitchen sink!
Traditional sponge square
Mini tapas-style sandwiches, enjoyed on the return journey
Tapas in Santander
Vino.....this was a lovely house white
Our breakfast in Santander before boarding the ferry home
My handsome croissant-muncherI don’t drink much at all but I thoroughly enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine and some authentic Spanish tapas in Santander. I love the whole tapas scene. The tapas bars have such a great atmosphere to them. Phil enjoyed sorrano ham in his dishes, whereas the veggie options usually consisted of roasted veggies, goats cheese, caramelised onions and pine nuts/walnuts.
If you ever go to Spain, I’d definitely recommend a tapas night Ours ended with a late night coffee in one of the sea front cafes. It was way too late for caffiene but we just didn’t want our night to end
It’s true when they say, “There’s no place like home”. It’s true but I could have easily spent another week in the wilds of the Spanish mountains, even if it meant having a dodgy “dairy” tummy!
Ooh….a shark cloud!
