CBBH Photo Challenge: FOOD

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!

Tapas of tuna and prawns in Malaga

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.

Brujas - Ruta de la Tapa, Torre del Mar

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!

Figs stuffed with goat cheese wrapped in bacon

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?

Chop the chocolate fudge into squares and ENJOY!

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!

CBBH Blog Hop

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.

  3. 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 🙂

  4. 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.

  5. 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 🙂

  6. ‘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

  7. 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!
    Kathryn ♥
