Heat in Spain

Of course you're boiling alive - you're in southern Spain in July. Sounds lovely, but sometimes it can be just too hot. Chuck the equipment back in the drawer, go down to a nice beach cafe with sea breezes and eat out! You're on holiday - stay out of the kitchen.

Heat in Spain

Eating out in Spain tends to be cheaper than in many countries.

After paying for new kitchen equipment you might find it cheaper to eat out.

I suggest local markets for salad ingredients.

Gazpacho and some lovely bread - no cooking and it's cooling and full of flavour... drizzle some lovely Spanish olive oil over the top for added lushness.

Heat in Portugal

Hi!

I'm finally in my new home in Santar&"233;m, Portugal, and it is hot here too. And I'm very happy about that, after 25 years of Belgian summers... Fortunately our flat is quite cool - we use a few tricks such as pulling down the blinds just before the sun turns but keeping the windows slightly open. Even with all the unpacking and cleaning we have not suffered from the heat in the last 2 weeks. However, going out shopping is a different matter, because there are not a lot of shadows on the way to the shops... Added to that, the main supermarket is halfway down a hill - the only problem being coming back up the steep hill pulling a full shopping trolley... But I'm loving it!

Rain

Treehugger, we had rain too this morning, but now all the clouds have gone.

I bought a whole peixe-espada in the market for 8 euros and 2 pork chops for 1.30. Can you believe this? They sell the most delicious fresh figs and the peaches are so much better than what we found in Belgium! This move was definitely a good one!
