Such a really happy Easter

 After few days to relax, here I go again! "Easter" means so much more than "religion", at least for me. "Easter" means "Seville", and "Seville" means "family and friends". I usually visit my family and sevillian friends on easter days, and this year hasn't been an exception. I've spent a great days there, enjoying their company and (of course)
the Easter Sevillian Week. 

Enjoying some torrijas at home!

 "Easter" means "eat like a fatty girl" too, and that means "torrijas". Torrija? Whut? Yep, torrijas! A torrija is, it’s a typical dessert of Lent and Easter in Spain. It consists of a slice of bread that is soaked in sweet milk (or wine) with honey and spices, and, after being dipped in egg, fried in a pan with olive oil. It sounds yummy, right? It tastes better! 

Here's the romantic touch, by Mr. Buttercup.
Isn't he lovely? 

 Real gentlemen give flowers. Mr. Buttercup isn't a gentleman... he's so much more! 
He gave me the most wonderful bouquet I ever had, and I'm a lucky girl in love with him. 
Now my bedroom looks more cute than ever before, I like flowers! 

Here in Spain, women still wear "mantillas" during Holy Week (the week leading to Easter), bullfights and weddings. For Holy Week, women wear black mantilla as a sign of mourning because Christ has died. I had never seen before how to put on a mantilla, but this year I finally saw how to do thanks to my grandma. We worked so hard for this result!
Do you like it? :)

Hope you had a good Easter too!

  1. ¿Te puedes creer que yo todavía no he probado las torrijas? ¿Ni el famoso "Dos y pingada"? Yo soy española porque lo dice en mi DNI jajaja.


    1. ¡¿No?! Madre mía, tienes que probar a hacerlas un día en casa, es cuestión de pillarle el punto :) ¡Seguro que después no podrás pasar una Semana Santa sin ellas!
