I carry Spain in my heart. Every. Single. Day. This much, you know is true. Do you know how I know that you know this about me?
Because more than a few people have told me that whenever they hear or see some reference to Spain, they think of me. That makes me feel loved. And I need a lot of love these days. Lots of it. And I need a car. And a roommate. And a place to live. But I literally don't have the energy to talk about that sh*tf*ckery today. Ugh.
But back to you knowing me and my Spain.
So my friend and fellow epicurean blogger (and fellow Blue Hen, go UD!) Keeley over at My Life on a Plate totally put me on to my newest food tv obsession, From Spain with Love. It comes on the Cooking Channel, which is by and large 8 bajillion times better than the Food Network. The moment she told me about the show (and that it reminded her of me) I added it to my DVR. Because I DVR food shows all the time. That's totally normal, right?? *nervous laugh* This past weekend, the first in which I was not contractually obligated to be reading a Harry Potter book and/or celebrating a Leo's birthday, I finally had the chance to watch the show. And sure enough, I LOVE it. But there's a twist to this story. You see, I don't actually have the Cooking Channel on my satellite
f*ck comcast! package. When Keeley told me about it, I just happened to have a free preview of it for a few weeks. And then one day, like Kaizer Soze, the Cooking Channel was gone and I was left destitute and alone with only the Food Network to sustain yet not entertain me. Whatever is a Jersey girl, who is going to move to Spain, and totally obsessed with watching good food television to do?! Well it turns out, I can simply do laundry at my sister, Odichi's house and watch it there, because she also thought of me when she saw it, and promptly added it to her DVR! Now that, my friends is love. Hermanas rock!
So this finally brings me to the point of this post which, it would appear, was divinely postponed for three months so that I would have something far more interesting to say than, "FREE STUFF!!"
In case you hadn't realized, this is a giveaway! Honestly, I kept putting this post off because I wasn't sure if anyone would want what I got. Because I was really busy drinking/dancing/flirting my face off during the Feria [and then sleeping till 2pm everyday] I didn't have much time to shop for something that was functional, useful and obviously from Spain, because I HATE nickknack gifts. But when I saw this kitchen set consisting of an apron, oven mitten, and pot holder on that fateful day in Sevilla, I thought it was perfect gift.
But then I got home and thought it was totally crappy and nobody would want it. So I guess now I'll find out if I suck more at buying blog gifts than I do at blogging.
