    Today, July 25, is Saint James Day! Fireworks last night along with a special mass at the cathedral help celebrate the day in Santiago.

    To further recognize today, the CSJ is offering a 30% discount through July 31 on any of their publications. Although their publications are very reasonably priced, the discount will help with the cost of postage particularly for orders being sent to the States. At checkout, use the code: STJAMES18.

    Buen Camino!

    Hey Hindsfeet - Thank you for your very kind words.

    Last year about this time, Laurie Ferris posted a recipe for a Tarta de Santiago.

    It’s a simple and delicious cake whether served on Saint James Day or any other occasion. Getting together with friends tonight and it’s my contribution to our communal dinner. Buen Camino!

    Wily....oh, do I remember that cake. It was called SANTIAGO CAKE. But I am afraid that I overdosed on it while in Spain. Hmmm.....it will be a while before I indulge in it again. :D
    It is a good dessert, because it is not terribly sweet.
