Day 15 Generous
We met some friends this morning, down at a coffee bar overlooking the beach. Most of you have probably heard of the Spanish tradition of bars offering you a tapa with your beer or wine; this one brings you one with your coffee as well! Small wrapped Dutch Spice biscuits come as standard on your saucer, along with a packet of sugar. This is followed at a decent interval by whatever the kitchen decides to send out. This week it is small thin circles of what appears to be left over pastry, lightly baked, then completely covered in icing sugar...times are hard! More generous though, was the saucer full of peanuts that appeared later when I requested a bottle of water; this qualifies as a drink and justifies the production of something savoury!
