V is for Variety #atozchallenge
Variety is the spice of life right? One of the most stunning things we encountered while in Spain were the beautiful markets. As we grow most of our own food, eat fresh while we can, try to store as much as possible, cook with wild abandon and were at the end of Winter at home, these 'merkat's' were complete eye candy. There was everything from farmers market style groceries, to sushi, tapas, and anything else you could imagine snacking on.
The variety was both intriguing and dizzying. The best part was we simply sampled our way through, and for at least two of our meals that is exactly what we did!
These meals were as fresh as can be, prepared in their most basic form; olive oil, lemon juice and fresh herbs. We could travel from booth to booth with a glass of wine or beer in hand and simply immerse ourselves in the variety laid before us. Of course, the meal ended with a bag of hand dipped truffles, what else?
