a very special night in Spain.
Happy San Juan Night

Pin It


  1. Very beautiful! I hope you had a nice weekend celebration.

    I was wondering...
    St. John of ? The horse ranchers? The spanish cowboys? How does that translate. I am most familiar with Spanish spoken by people from Mexico.


    1. If you are talking about the church San Juan de los caballeros, the translation would be St. John of the Gentlemen and it has relation with the times of the reconquer in Jerez. Jerez (in the south of Spain) was occupied by the arabs and the Christians Gentlemen from Kingdom of Castilla came to reconquer the city.

    2. Gracias, Marina, how interesting. It's a very different meaning. You see, I looked at the buildings and wondered if there had been ranches because it didn't look like the meanings I knew. That's why I asked. Now, I know it also means "gentlemen"!

  2. Dearest Marina,
    What a special celebration for San Juan's moon.
    Enjoy your summer week ahead.

    1. Thank you, Mariette. I think this is going to be a great summer.


  3. We also celebrate "la nuit de la Saint Jean" in France.

    1. "La nuit de la Saint Jean" Trés Joly!

  4. Fuegos artificiales!! gracias por tus fotos, así...aunque lejos esta vez, he podido recoger un pedacito de la verbena de San Juan!! Marina mañana me voy a Victoria's secret!

    Kisses from New York

    1. Alucino contigo, no me lo puedo creer, no me lo puedo creer.

      Hugs from Spain

Bohemian day - Un día bohemio

I am a little bit odd, you already know me. Sometimes I like that everything is in the correct place  and sometimes I enjoy seeing my untidy cushions. Today I have a bohemian day.
Soy un poco rarita, ya me conocéis, A veces me gusta que todo esté en el lugar correcto y a veces disfruto viendo mis cojines desordenados. Hoy, tengo un día bohemio.

Sometimes I love white  and luminous walls  and sometimes  I would love having  a stone wall at home.
A veces me encantan las paredes  blancas y luminosas  y a veces me encantaría tener  una pared de piedra en casa. 

I would love lose myself  among colourful cushions but some days  I love white ones.
Me encantaría perderme  entre cojines de colores pero algunos días  me encantan los blancos.

Baking at home - Horneando en casa

Everybody knows that industrial pastry has ingredientes,
 which are not especially healthy, but sometimes,
you would do anything to eat one or two of them.
That's the reason because you would have
to bake at home,
you will add less calories
 and healthier ingredients.
It's not easy at the beginning.
I used to bake very ugly cakes,
sometimes flat ones, 
sometimes huge ones. 
But now, 20 years later, 
I have improved a little bit.
Do you know what I love?
I love bake with friends,
 I teach them and they teach me.

Todos sabemos que la pastelería industrial  contiene ingredientes,  que no son especialmente saludables,  pero a veces harías lo que fuera  por comerte uno o dos. Esa es la razón por la que deberías  hornear en casa, añadirás menos calorías  e ingredientes más saludables. No es fácil al principio. Yo solía hacer pasteles bastante feos, a veces planos, a veces enormes. Pero ahora, 20 años más tarde,  he mejorado un poquito. ¿Sabéis lo que me encanta? Me encanta hornear con amigos,  yo les enseño y ell…

The Oven - El Horno

If you decide to switch on the oven, think in advance and take advantage of it. Here you are the links to Two Pastry Braids The Tuna Pastry The Veggies Pastry The Spinach Puff and British Scones Yams are very easy to bake, you can  do it at the same time that one of the pastries.
Si decides encender el horno, piénsalo antes y aprovechalo. Aqui tenéis los enlaces a: Dos Trenzas de Hojaldre La Empanada de Atún La Empanada de Verduras El hojaldre de Espinacas Y los Bollos Ingleses Los boniatos son muy fáciles de hornear,  podéis hacerlo al mismo tiempo que una de las empanadas.

This is one my tips to save electricity, hehehe Bake several dishes at the same day, in this way , you can take advantage of the heat, and you even can bake two dishes at the same time in diferent trays
Este es uno de mis consejos para ahorrar electricidad, jejeje, Hornear varios platos el mismo día, de esta manera, podéis aprovechar el calor, e incluso podéis hornear dos platos a la vez en diferentes bandejas.

Happy Wednesday!!!
¡Feliz Miérc…
