There are so many nice people in this forum! I can't belive it. I wish my English were better. As some of you have told, it is good enough, but it is only because I use dictionaries and take painful steps before writihg each phrase. Many of you ask about tapas. Well, if you ask me, tapas were invented abroad, not in Spain I mean, "tapa" means "cover", like the thing you put over a pan. In the beginning, when peope went to a bar to have a glasé of wine (standing, not seated on a seat), the put a slice of bread on your glasé, so flies don't go on your glasé. After thar, years later, they put an slice of chorizo or ham on the bread. And after that...Tapas Tapas is not exactly a bunch of recipes, it is a philosophy (and a rather unhealthy one, something to keep for a day each month, not more, if you ask me). But it is oh so fun! Yo choose a few bars you like. Note here: only a few areas of Spain are good for "ir de tapas" meaning realy tapas areas; they are mainly in Madrid, Andalusia and Basque Country; BUT most cities in Spain have a district for tapas, you only have to ask! OK, so you have chosen your favourite bars. Now the usual, tradicional thing is going from one to other, having the "special" tapa of each bar and a small glasé of wine, then to the next one. At the end (after four or five bars), people goes home to have ther middle day meal, or (if you are like me), you think you have eaten enough for the day. If you are not cautious, after the tapas you end very drunk, and then you are laughable Not sure if I have been clear enough, but it has taken a lot of pains to write this message. I have TONS of recipes for tapas, and I can share them if you really think my english is understable. Anyway, remeber what is the origin for tapas: ANYTHING you can put on a slice of bread Besos!!! Cristina Ps.- Not sure, if I post recipes, ¿y should post them to this forum or to other one? Do you think my recipes would be understable with my English?
