Celebrating an Interview at "Journey To A Dream"

Craig Briggs interviewed me for the "Some-day Supplement" issue of his blog, Journey to a Dream. Stop by and have a look. The "Some-day Supplement" is always a fun issue, containing a fabulous recipe laid out step-by-step by his wife, Melanie, a travel article by Craig, an interview with an author, and fabulous pictures Here's the LINK .

Craig and Melanie live in Canabal, (a village in Galicia , the autonomous region of Spain where Rajan and I visit twice a year.) So the main heading for the "Some-day Supplement" is Canabal Chronicle. For those of you who like to read about far-away place and enjoy a little history about foreign cities, this is a site to book-mark.

That's my news for today. Please hop on over and take a peek.                                                                       

Meanwhile: Celebrate the Small Things  is a blog hop co-hosted by Lexa Cain at: Lexa Cain,  L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge , and Tonja Drecker @ Tidbits Blog(You can go to any of these sites to add your name to the links, if you want to participate. )

  1. I do enjoy trying new foods and recipes especially when they are regional. That's always one of the things I enjoy most about travelling.

    1. Hi, Suzanne. Me, too. Food is such a reflection of the culture. You would love the little custard pastries Melanie features in this week's recipe.

  2. Congratulations on the interview. And it sounds like the perfect combination: a fantastic writer and a great interview for the Some-day Supplement.

    And who doesn't enjoy reading about food? Being able to recreate the recipe is another (and very different) subject.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Bb & Elizabeth. the Some-day Supplement is a fun place to visit often. Let me assure you, if you recreate this recipe (the Portuguese tarts), you will be in heaven. They are so delicious. Have a great day.

  4. There is, indeed, Tonja. I'm so glad to have some of the recipes floating around, too. I've cooked a few I downloaded from the Internet and they really WERE yummy. Hope you've been having a good week-end.

  5. I love travel pictures. My dad used to get calendars featuring gorgeous pictures of mountains in Europe from work (BASF). I hung them from my walls as posters for years.

  6. That's such a great idea, Tamara. I use calendar pictures of landscapes like that to inspire kids in my art class. But I love the idea of using them for travel posters.

  7. I travel vicariously with you. (Although I did just return from a family event on the other coast, it was brief.)

  8. Hi, Mirka, thanks for stopping by. I travel vicariously through other friends as well. My husband and I go to Spain, but deep in my heart I've also always wanted to go to Ireland. Since we can't do everything, I hound my Irish sister-in-law to share pictures and such overtime she goes back to visit relatives in Galway area. (She lives in England now.)

  9. Since I haven't travelled anywhere for so long, I look forward to your pictures and stories about Spain as a way to travel vicariously...

  10. Oh, thank you, Kate! That makes me very happy. I love sharing photos and things going on in our favorite area. I travel vicariously, too. Ireland and Scotland are places I love to hear about. Have a great week-end.
