Eating My Way Out

 

 

With as many cuisines and flavors and spices and cooking methods coming my way via Spain (and other stops), I am indeed looking forward to international foodie-ism. But that doesn’t mean I won’t miss what I have at home in the US. Being from Savannah, GA, I’m a coastal woman and I enjoy my fair share (and your share, too) of seafood. Shrimp, oysters, calamari, fish, conch, and so on...

Something is in my dang food!

Something is in my dang food!

Today I returned for the third time to what I’ve adopted as my café, Gelatiamo, which is a few doors down from my apartment here in Spain. As you can tell by the name, they have #gelato, the best I’ve ever tasted. This place also sells food, including my favorite, crepes. For lunch, I ordered...

Incense, Sage, and Good Vibes

Incense, Sage, and Good Vibes

 

I arrived.

I made it to Barcelona, Spain.

And now, there are things that must be done.

 

If this was going to be home for me, it had to be cleansed. The cleaning service had taken care of the dishes, the floors, the dusting. But somethings, I have to do and only I can do.

{ Street Art Gallery Following Post }

 

One of the things that has caught my attention and made me see it in a different way is graffiti/street art. There’s just something different about it from what I’ve seen in the US. Not to say similar street art doesn’t exist there, I just haven’t see...

Guess What?

Guess What?

So I’m moving to Barcelona.

 

No you’re not.

 

No really. I am. I’m moving to Barcelona, Spain.

 

I have to keep rotating between pinching myself to make sure I’m not dreaming and screaming, “Heffa! Have you lost your mind?” No, it’s not a dream. Yes, I have lost my mind. I can’t even speak Spanish, y’all! For real. I...

Where Would You Like To Go?

I know many of my readers, especially my friends and family, have heard of places in Spain they’d love to visit/experience. As for me, I have my same particulars I want to see everywhere I travel (food, books, crafty stuff, street events, and so on and so on. Did I say food already?) So, during...

Cooking In Spain

Cooking In Spain

 

Last night, I cooked my first meal here in Barcelona. This was my first time cooking “fuet”, which is a staple meat here in Catalan. I’ve eaten it at a restaurant or two, but the flavor was mixed with others. Last night, though, I tasted its true flavor and liked it. Kale, peppers, onions, chorizo,...
