I know the after school program at Meadowbrook is ending soon. Hope you all have a great summer and I look forward to seeing you next fall.
Just wanted to share with you, what I ate for dinner last night. It was Octopus. I was somewhat apprehensive about trying it, however, everyone here in this region of Spain eats Octopus. So I ordered it for dinner. I followed our “5 bites rule” and decided I liked it. It tastes kind of like lobster but chewier and kind of like Calamari (Squid) but not as chewy.
There was a big festival in the little village we are staying in — it is the feast of Santo Isidoro who must be the patron saint of agriculture and farming. All the farmers decorated their tractors with flowers and branches of cherries and paraded through the town. It was very special to see how thankful this village is for its farmers and the food they produce.
Below are some photos from the day in Cacabelos, Spain. Hope you enjoy them.
