Say ´tis, of course!
Well, here we are again. ‘Tis Christmas time again and I always get a little bit gloomy this time of year. ‘Tis normal, right? ‘Tis another year of joyful celebration with the family, for hours … and hours … and hours. ´Tis another round of avoiding the face at Christmas and New Year’s Eve. ‘Tis another year of wondering when my Spanish level will improve so that I don’t get the face anymore. ‘Tis a little bothersome, no? Kind of like reading ’tis over and over?
I’m always steeling myself up for the mandatory family time about now. I should tell you that I really do have the best Spanish family you could ever ask for. I have the loveliest of in-laws who have welcomed me into their loving, fun, generous family with open arms.
Little did they know that I, the sweet little American girl they first met, would turn into a bah,humbug grouch that would sit for hours devouring all of their wine, ham, and whatever else they put on the table, constantly asking someone to “pass the ham, coño!”.
So, I’m going to try and think positive thoughts and, in the spirit of gorging your face off at Christmas time, I thought I would do a list of my favorite Spanish food blogs. Whether you’re in Spain or at home with the family, take a break from eating and have a looksy. I, however, rarely take a break from eating, but hey, that’s me.
