What we packed


Just got home from an amazing week in Barcelona.  Fresh air we could breathe! Sunshine! Beautiful sights, beaches, food! We'll be updating the blog with the full report in due time  ... for now, this is what we packed in our suitcases coming home:
  • a melon
  • 3 bottles of wine, none costing more than $6.00
  • 2 bottles of olive oil, ditto on the prices
  • 2 mangoes
  • a bunch of clementines
  • 2 blocks of Parmesan cheese
  • several packs of piggy of various varieties (primarily jamon)
  • 2 bunches of asparagus
  • a kilo of green beans
  • 2 parsnips
  • a kilo of sweet potatoes
  • a box of Oatly oat milk (expiration date November!)
  • a box of rice-coconut milk (expiration date 2016!)
In addition, while in country we gorged on strawberries and cherries, tender beef, fish (for some), pig of various types (for others), cheap tasty wine, eggs with orange yolks, fresh baked bread from the local bakery (some days we visited them twice), and one day for a treat Terry and I shared a pint of Haagen Dasz mint chocolate chip.  Oh and we discovered a "bio" store where I bought a two pack of soy yogurt for Alex and me. She ate hers and half of mine.  We should have bought more. Even the tiny little markets near the apartment had soy, rice and coconut milks available, and some had several brands of each.
