My friend and neighbor, V and I sat around her table drinking herbal tea one day back in November and while we sipped we shared our love of Spanish food, dancing and living. I came to discover that she took years of flamenco lessons, so we decided that a fiesta was in order after the holiday season passed.
Tonight was the fiesta and we went all out! V brought Spanish music to set the mood and, between the two of us, we made potato torta, chicken mole, fresh cucumber tomato salad, virgin sangria, bought marinated olives and authentic Spanish cheese and finished off the feast with fried custard! It was delicious!
Then A juggled for the kids and V danced the most elegant, melodic flamenco for us! I loved it so much I had to try it out! So I tied some play scarves on and tried out my flower hands. We had such a fun time enjoying the beautiful Spanish culture!
