a homemade dinner in spain

Monday, June 27, 2011

don’t be deceived – we did not rub guacamole all over our faces.  those are facial masks we purchased at the grocery store (when we weren’t buying donuts or baby pinks), which we wore while we made guacamole.
and when i say we wore these while making guacamole, i mean that we wore these while caroline made guacamole and i stood to the side, stealing samples and telling her to add more tomatoes.

this is what happens when you have olive-toned skin; you say things like "caroline, it's just not showing up on my face very well....why is yours so much greener?"  and then you realize: you're basically shrek.


   speaking of shrek..... he did this all on his own and surprised us.
IMG_0880then sergio took to the kitchen to prepare some sort of cold soup, the name of which i don’t remember.
though i should have remembered the name because i need to make a point of never eating this soup again.
(it’s okay, sergi doesn’t even know what a blog is, let alone does not read mine.)IMG_0873all i know is that the soup contained a lot of egg, a lot of mayonnaise, a lot of tomato puree and a lot of garlic.  like, this much garlic…

but look! it’s the non-shrek version of shrek! (on the very left)IMG_0892
because the soup wasn't our favorite, my dinner that night consisted of 1/2 a bag of chips and the majority of that guacamole.  and if we’re being honest here, there was probably a lot of dessert involved, too.

suffice it to say, the tapas were better.

I don't blame you for only eating the guac. I could eat that for every meal every day of my life.

Bahahah, this post made me laugh out loud. Shrek, the most disgusting soup I've ever heard of (bless you for trying it. Don't think I'd have the strength), your masks...too funny.

I now have a seriously craving for avocados (the guacamole kind, not the face mask kind). [:

I can't wait to look through some of your older posts! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog!

I laughed at Shrek and gagged at mayonnaise soup.

ladylyles said...

mayonnaise soup sans garlic would probably be a really good hair mask.

Jennifer said...

but on a more positive note...the green faces look quite lovely ;-)

Danielle said...

gazpacho! i think that's the name of the soup you were eating! man, the spanish love that stuff! all this talk of spain is making me homesick-ish! :)

xoxo, dania said...

im heading to spain in a week! any tips/suggestions!?

kim said...

yup, that's gazpacho. It's basically just cold tomato soup, so there could be a version out there that you do like.

i'm going to madrid, barcelona, and marbella!! im sooo excited!

Jessi @ Life: The Epic Journey said...

That's my biggest worry about visiting friends in Europe. MOST of the food is delicious, but what if my McDonalds-fed-childhood decides to come out as they serve some strange snail/fish concoction. With a raw egg on top?
:)

Megan said...

Michaela said...
