At the beginning of the month, I applied for a new position and after some stress and hard work, I got it!
We went to celebrate it to our favorite restaurant and tried a delicious tarte tatin.
This was also the month of having to buy new electronic appliances. The dish washer and the vacuum cleaner broke with a difference of two days in between. We also bought a new food processor because we couldn’t find the blades of the old one. They of course appeared immediately after we bought the new one😉
I finally watched the last Star Wars film. It took me some time to decide to watch it because I knew some things happened in the movie that I certainly didn’t want to happen… At the end I enjoyed it as it is very similar to the first Star Wars film, the only one I ever liked.
July 2016 was also the month of the Pokémon Go! I was surprised about the craziness around it and I still don’t get it… but this is probably due to the fact that I don’t really like games.
Holidays started; sort of as I was working in the mornings until August began. One of the first “holidays things” we did was to invite D & F to learn to cook “tortilla de patatas”. We had a wonderful evening with them!
And the very last day of the month, the new Harry Potter book was released. I of course bought it immediately to make sure I could read as soon as my real holidays started on August the 2nd.
My sister asked me to try to write the recipes of the food I post in this blog. She also asked me to do it in Spanish but since this recipe is based on, I guess an american one, I will try to write a bilingual recipe. Basically, the Cowboy Caviar is a fresh and fulfilling bean salad ideal for the warm days of summer.

Because we have been working very hard together always with the intention to make things better. Thanks, you have been the very best!
Visitors, surprisingly basic but nice food and rainy showers and for the rest, June was a month full of work, stress and more challenges at work.
And the summer arrived once more in this part of the world
So here’s the thing, I am always thinking about how to redecorate my house. I like to change things around, add new holes to the walls to put paintings as crooked as a human being possibly can, and from time to time, to buy nice furniture. But buying is not always easy as my taste tends to be retro-nostalgic.
The last treasure at home is my new cupboard (I already showed it to you here) but today I only want to show you the mood board I made when I was searching for a nice cupboard.
