Everything was delicious!

If you get hungry late at night, and I tend to be hungry most hours of the day and night. Located where the Ravel and Poble Sec areas in Barcelona meet, is Johnny Aldana. We needed a little snack to continue our walk on our first night in town -- it was just where we needed to be.
(And by the way ... we are eating ham everyday now!)

The Margaritas have a splash of Damiana Liquor -- a new favorite for me!

I have a new appreciation for the Meyer Lemon.
So happy to have it in my yard and bearing fruit.
The wreath cookies are fabulously light, lemony, and sweet. My lemon cake didn't fare so well, and I am 100% responsible -- baking is a science and I was going on feeling -- not so wise.
The cake's taste, however, is spot on --- thinking of morphing it into trifle parfaits for Christmas Eve.
|I got the recipe for these cookies in the Times Picayune, but here it is online from the Washington Post. I made some around Thanksgiving and then another batch this week after freezing the dough. The flavor seemed more believable in round two. Super cute, small, crunchy, cookie. |
