We all need it. Most of us love it – some maybe a little too much! But, whatever your relationship with it, FOOD is the subject of this month’s CBBH Photo Challenge.
Is there a food typical of your country or area where you live? How about your favourite recipe or something you once ate that you would never try again?
Well, show me with a photograph!
Most people know that Spain is well known for it’s tapas – the tasty treats offered along with your drink. I enjoyed these delicious prawns and tuna in the Atarazanas market on a trip to Málaga city, recently. There are two tapas bars, one at either end of the market, both offering ultra-fresh ingredients, cooked to perfection, from the market.
During May, I’ve been following the tapas route around Torre del Mar. One of my favourites has been this vegetable stack with a cranberry jus. Yummy!
Talking of yummy, how about this dish made with fresh figs plucked straight from the tree, stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped with smoked bacon?
And, to finish, a piece of my easy, chocolate fudge that will make you drool, which you might remember I took on a recent trip with friends when we rode on Mr Henderson’s Railway!
So, now it’s YOUR turn.
Don’t forget that the CBBH Photo Challenge is a little different from some other challenges, in two ways. First, it’s only once a month – giving you lots of time to consider your entry before the end of the calendar month. Second, and most important, this is a BLOG HOP (after all, it is the CBBH – Conejo Blanco Blog Hop, conejo blanco means white rabbit in Spanish), so DON’T FORGET that in your post you need to add links to two blogs that you have visited and commented on during the past month.
That way, when we visit each other, we can HOP OVER to your links, connect with others and share a little blog love around!
Before I move on to my two featured bloggers for this month, I want to offer my CONGRATULATIONS to Maggie Woodward who’s blog The Trepidatious Traveller I featured in May. Maggie was about to commence walking the Camino Portuguese from Lisbon, Portugal to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. I can report that during the month of May, she has walked a total distance of 669.9 km, completing her Camino walk on May 28th, and is now safely back home in Spain, only a few kilometres away from me. I know that a few of you have been following Maggie’s progress as I’ve seen your comments on her blog posts. VERY WELL DONE, MAGGIE – you are an inspirational woman!
My Featured Blog Links for this month:
*** Christine of Dadirridreaming, lives near to the sea in Australia, surrounded by bushland and beautiful wild beaches. Kangaroos and wallabies graze all around her house and red bellied black snakes hunt the frogs in the dams nearby. Christine takes time to explore the spiritual side of life, which is reflected in her lovely blog posts, all of which have stunning photographs. She is currently exploring my part of the world, and has visited Ronda, Seville and Córdoba, amongst many other places. We will be meeting up in Málaga city on Thursday June 5th. Can’t wait!
*** Another blogger I always enjoy visiting is Kathryn at Vastly Curious. Her recent post in the WordPress Photo challenge had me amazed! She showed a photograph of the buds of a plant that looked like liquorice twists and wanted to identify it. It was only when I looked at Kathryn’s later photos of the flower fully opened that I realised that I have one!! She has also been travelling recently to The Netherlands, from where you can see her wonderful photos.
Please HOP over and say HELLO to both of my featured links, and tell them Marianne sent you!
So that´s the CBBH Photo Challenge for June, folks.
Remember, all you have to do is post your entry by the end of the month, tag your entry ‘CBBH Photo Challenge’, link back to this blog and, most importantly, don´t forget to add links to any two blogs that you´ve commented on during the past month, so that we can all HOP OVER and have a look.
Make sure you follow this blog so you don´t miss next month’s exciting challenge!

I hope everyone taking part enjoys the exposure the CBBH Photo Challenge offers to featured blogs and, who knows, you may end up finding a new favourite!
I´m looking forward to seeing your interpretations.

You’ve got me, I’m drooling too 🙂
No fair!!! You a te making me so incredibly hungry for Spanish tapas! Looks delicious! My mouth is watering
Sorry about that. You’ll have to arrange a tapas night for your friends, Nicole!
Yes but having tapas in Spain with the wine, taste, music and ambiance is like no place on earth to eat tapas!!!
well, now you put it like that ….! 🙂
A mouthwatering post Marianne, and that fudge sounds super easy!!
Your featured bloggers are two of my favourite people 🙂
Thanks Madhu – yes, I love their blog posts, too 🙂
I love both of your featured blogs Marianne, and those cranberry stacks look good to me. I’m queuing up behind Sue for my figs, please 🙂
I guess I’d have to post Yorkshire puds! Or pierogi Or Mick’s favourite, Tuna Algarvia 🙂
You’re heading out to Portugal very soon, aren’t you, Jo?
Wednesday evening 🙂 Christine’s just been for a lovely meal in Berchules and I suggested she post it on yours 🙂
I’m hoping to take her for the delicious fishy tapas in my first photo on Thursday lunchtime 🙂
OOHHH hope they like fish!
Otherwise it’ll have to be the veg and cranberry 🙂
Mouth watering photos!
Thanks Sophie 🙂
Ah tapas, always a favourite with us. When we are out we often create our own from the entree menu. I’ve been really enjoying Christine’s travels and posts. And I’ll see how this month goes but ‘food’ I think is a challenge I could manage.
Look forward to seeing it, Ella 🙂
Great food & great pictures… tapas & sangria are a perfect combination! 🙂
Thanks Eilsa – yes they are! 🙂
Now, I don’t eat meat but those figs look divine, as does your fudge! I’m baking at this very moment but it’s not going well so I won’t take any photos. Have a lovely time on Thursday, I get to meet Christine on Saturday, I’ve been looking forward to it for ages 🙂
Thanks Gilly -yes, really looking forward to meeting Christine and Stuart 🙂
‘Most of us love it – some maybe a little too much!’ OK, I want to know who’s been talking and spreading all these rumours! It’s possible I may have gained a pound or two ( who shouted stones?) recently but that’s the fault of all these people ( naming no names) who keep featuring food on their blogs and making me hungry. The least you could do Marianne is have a warning at the start of the post.
xxx Massive Hugs to go with my massive waistline.xxx
hahaha … I was mostly meaning ME, David! 😉
It’s with all this research I have to do for the blog, you understand! 🙂
Naturally. You’re a dedicated writer. xxxxxxx
OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I quickly scanned your post to the bottom and headed back up to Christine , a blog I really enjoyed and then I circled back to see the second and it was ME !!! I am so flattered Marianne.! Completely Blushing but so flattered I am speechless. Thank you so very much from a woman with impeccable taste in food, travel and life!
When we finally meet the Champagne is on me and I feel we will meet !
Hugs and thanks you!
Hahaha … I thought you were joking in your last comment. 🙂
You are MOST welcome, Kathryn. xx
No I was embarrassed ! Thanks so much!
Tapas, my favorite ! Thanks for sharing some of your favorite blogs! I will visit !
Now this is my kind of challenge… 😉
Well, it’s not like I could possibly compete with tapas andaluzas…!
Give it a try! 😉
Pingback: Food | Le Drake Noir
Yeah I bring some bottles of red wine – when is the food ready..? 😎
Looks delicious… 😉
Give me 20 minutes, Drake!
Oh what absolutely delicious images, Marianne. I’d like just a little of each for lunch today. 🙂
A bit of each is such a great way to eat, isn’t it? 🙂
Tapas route sounds the way to go! I’ll have the figs, please….:)
The tapas route has been a great way to find new places to eat.
The figs won’t be ripe for another 6-8 weeks, Sue – but I’ll save you some 🙂
Is the Tapas route a seasonal thing, or an advertised route or what?
This is the 3rd year they have had it in Torre del Mar. Various bars/restaurants join in and opt to offer a “special” tapas (other than their usual menu) to showcase the restaurant. This particular one happens each year in May 🙂
Good links and good food! have a lovely Sunday x
Thanks Wendy – you too!
We have just been having a huge thunderstorm here. 😦
It’s just arrived here! Cat came rushing in….
Finished here now – just cool and cloudy!
