If you have been reading gorkabear’s journal, you would know that two Finish bears, arkiwursti and hezma have been visiting Barcelona. I decided to invite them along with gorkabear over for lunch yesterday. Ruben helped with all the preparations and we had a sampling of Spanish food.

For the first plate we had a variety of cured pork products called embutidos, various cheeses, and of course olives. We drank two types of Spanish cider (sidra). Our Finnish friends prefer to have cider rather than the usual lager beer they have back home.

The second plate was BBQ Spanish pork sausages or salchichas along with some brochettes of beef and chicken. All that meat pretty much covered the grill of my Weber BBQ. For a vegetable I made some spinach catalán style and also a green salad with walnuts, blue cheese, and my special sauce. gorkabear brought some red wine from La Rioja.

For dessert we had some brownies made with Ghiradelli chocolate. It was prepared mix from Costco and didn’t turn out at well as expected. As traditional at the end of meal here we had café and licores.

I decided I better start taking some pictures while I could still stand up!
