Eat Yer Peas!

Growing up in the South -- with a superstitious Mom -- we were required to eat black-eyed peas on every single New Year's Day for our entire lives.  It didn't matter if you were a grown-up with a job and 3 kids.  You still got the call on New Year's Day:  "Did you eat your black-eyed [...]

The Spanish Rules of Eating

We went out to breakfast, like most days when we're in Spain. Well, almost.  Unlike most days, our friend, Irene, and her 4-yr old son, Leo were here.  So the priorities got rearranged just a little.  Instead of considering where we could get the best coffee and food, the first consideration was how good the [...]

And all my agitation with people and situations I'd had to deal with recently just evaporated. It's hard to be pissy when you're eating incredible food and drinking amazing wine with fabulous friends. So this post [...]
