Hello lovely people,
It's already the 24th of July! How time flies.
I have received some postcards this week so I will show you one that arrived and one that I have sent myself.
The one I received came from Croatia. It was sent to me by Erika who is from the Czech Republic but is working in Croatie during the summer.
She used a beautiful stamp with corals on it:The second card is the one I sent. People often ask for typical national dishes or drinks. Well, in Spain, Sangria springs to mind.
It is made of red wine, fruit and a dash of brandy. I don't drink it myself as a lot of places use the cheapest wine and make it taste horrible or add sugar, in which case it becomes impossibly sweet.
You can clearly see it is built over 4 floors. The top floor is at street level of the centre of the village. At the moment we are living in the ground floor flat where it is much cooler as part of it is built in the rock.
We do not live near the coast (nearest beach one and a half hours drive) but there is a beautiful lake on our doorstep so to speak and we took our visitors there. (My hubby and I are on the left).
I've just realized that the sangria photo would qualify for the T-party hosted by Elizabeth and Bluebeard at Altered Book Lover. But I had already prepared a photo of our meal yesterday.
I made Pasta In Bianco at my hubby's request. It is cooked pasta with lots of freshly grated Parmesan or Grana Padana cheese, and a generous dollop of butter. Yum! I poured myself a cool glass of Portughese white wine, so be my guest!
Have a lovely T-Day y'all,
