So, just to get a few things off the table before I go all (non) recipe on your butts: Spain is RIDICULOUSLY gorgeous. I’d heard all the things about all the cities we’d be visiting, and I went in completely assuming I’d leave with a strong bias toward one or the other, but so far I’ve fallen in love with little bits of Barcelona (the jamón, Gaudi everything, and some of the most excellently executed vegetarian food I’ve had in a while), San Sebastian (pintxos, of course — and the views!) and Madrid (palaces and patatas — what’s not to like??). I’ll do the best I can to get a recap up on the blog in the weeks (ok, let’s be real: months) to come, but if I don’t, I’ve been posting a few snippets on Instagram along the way if you wanna get all caught up. 🙂 UM, how traumatizing is the end of ET?

Of course I left my phone at home, so I can’t share a lick of it with you right yet, but if I can get my hand on some snaparoos, I’ll be sure to share. Suuuuuur cuuuuuurte. And now we can get on with a fall that’s nearly as full of festivities. Almost. Except guessat. I’m not ready for fall. So instead let’s keep eating salad like it’s not getting dark at 7. Like it’s not 49 degrees at night. Like pumpkins aren’t all up ons…everything. Like Costco isn’t already slinging fatty bags of Kit Kats. That I want to insert into my face like felled timber into a woodchipper. Yeah. Salad still seems like a good idea. This one’s been pretty popular at our last couple of potlucks. And it’s basically a deconstructed street sandwich that you can eat like a classy friggin’ lady. Winning all around.
