Thanks for all the great comments on Michael’s banana cake story. I read them aloud to Mr. Luddite, which made him very happy.
On May 1 we are off to Spain for a month, and I will try to send a few blogs from there, using my iPad. We plan to start and end in San Sebastian, the Basque coastal city in the far north of Spain. With a rental car, we’ll travel slowly east and south, with no fixed itinerary, following guidebooks and the weather. We are really looking forward to a change of diet, so maybe I’ll practice my hand at some amateur food writing. Stay tuned!
May 3 Update: Well, we are here, but unless I can figure out how to upload photos onto the website using my iPad (ideas anyone?), I will have to take a break from my blog until June. The food in San Sebastian is wonderful, as reported, but it turns out I am not very good at remembering, or writing about, what we eat; it seems I can only record the visuals…
