Hello lovely peeps! And hello lovely T-Gang! We’re here to share a beverage with Elizabeth and Bluebeard at T for Tuesday. Why don’t you join me?
First of all let me show you some postcards. I haven’t received any as I have not sent any. (I am a member of Postcrossing and every time I send a card to a random address, another random ‘post crosser’ gets my address and I will then receive a postcard too.) This weekend I decided it was time I did something about that and I wrote about 12 cards. I'm showing you some of the postcards I sent out.
This beautiful black and white postcard of a flamenco dancer was bought in Cordoba when I was there last week. It is so typical of this region where the women wear this sort of dress for the fiestas. So pretty.
I love this gypsy girl, taking her flamenco dancing very serious. (I might have shown you this card before, but I just love it)
This is where I bought the cards, in Córdoba. I will show you more photos of this beautiful city next week. I am already preparing the blog post with the photos. (Watch this space!)A few weeks ago I spent a Sunday with the photo club learning about macro photography. It was great fun. We learnt a lot and ‘played’ with each other’s (photographic) equipment.
One young man had brought his drone and that was interesting. I had never seen one close up. It was fascinating to watch him use it and take pictures from up above.
We were at a large picnic area and there were several BBQs available. People had brought wood and a pan and one of the ladies set to make paella, our national dish.
The meat was rabbit and pork, and you can see some whole garlic bulbs sticking out. Yumm!
Here you can see some of the other ingredients: bell peppers, broad beans and paella seasoning.
It takes a long time to cook the paella, so someone commandeered another BBQ and cooked some belly pork and sausages as a snack for those who were hungry.
Here she has added the tomatoes and the whole thing is taking on more colour.
Then water is added and we all take turns in stirring. Me included!
Here the rice has been added and when the rice is cooked, the paella can be served.
I have spotted the large garlic...
In the end I was the one to get the garlic. (People fight over it as it is very nice.) It was thouroughly cooked so it didn't smell on the breath so much.
I ate the whole garlic!
You can see, I photographed the plate but not my drink! Oh dear. So I will have to find another photo with a drink in it.This is a large thistle. There were several of these large plants in the field. To show you how big it is I have put my beer can next to it. So in the end I did get a drink in my post.
That's it from me today. Join me for a beverage at Altered Book Lover.
See you there!
