I pottered out tonight….the wifie is away doing that pre-Christmas grandmother thing in England.
Had dinner in the cafe at the end of the road. Got to order it, the day before, so they can get the stock in sort of thing.
I ended up with a bottle of not very good red wine. About a lb or so of not all that good beef, slowly cooked with garlic and onions. Boiled potatoes, a tomato and onion salad (they\’d peeled the tomatoes, I should add), bread, dessert of a couple of fresh pears (I was greedy and asked for a third) and a cafezino (for the uninitiated, an espresso and a local brandy).
No, there\’s better food out there in this world. There\’s even better food than this in England.
I got charged €10 for the lot.
The horrors of Portugal, let me tell you.
