destination: portugal

my husband and I traveled to Portugal last year, we spent time in lisbon, algarve, and evora…all places that I would highly recommend that you seek and find. 🙂 It is a wonderful country and I found the food, the people, the architecture, the surroundings (basically everything), absolutely amazing.  it’s a trip I would definitely do again.  and speaking of the food, it was simple yet full of flavor.  I thought a great way to honor my trip to Portugal would be to throw a “celebrate Portugal” party and  show all the photo’s that we took with friends, and dine on some of the great food we had.  sounds like a good idea right?   so, I put together a quick menu.  let me know what you think, and enjoy a few snapshots of my trip too.   apreciar!

3grilled sardines via emeril lagasse (a must try it)
