Another topic-based post for today: food.
There were a few meals that we really remember from our pilgrimage this year. They were amazing at the time, and we look back at them with delight.
There was the cheese salad in Caldas de Reis, two days before Santiago, after we had entered Spain.
|Greens, nuts, raisins, cheese, balsamic vinaigrette: to die for.|
|It was about a hundred degrees, inside and out. This soup was cool, and very good.|
|Chicken-fried pork cutlets, tomato with lemon-olive oil dressing, beans and rice with a wonderful hammy flavor. Perfect for hungry hikers on a hot day.|
|This proved to be a solid workman's lunch. Note that the sandwich is covered in gravy and garnished with an egg on top. And fries on the side.|
|I couldn't finish mine. It was a meat coma encased in some bread and a great-tasting gravy.|
