Food Weekened: Merienda Cena

After visiting MIL*, we usually drop by our favorite bar in the neighborhood  for some coffee  and tea or for a merienda( afternoon snack). I love that the beverage also comes with mini-muffins for the sweet tooth although not all bars include this treat in their coffee or tea.

I usually order an infusion called ¨poleo-menta or if not chamomile tea which is good for the tummy and drink it sans sugar.

Why without sugar? Because together with my tea I also order my favorite carrot cake to share with the hubz:

And when the tummy craves for more food, a  piece of this tapa/ pincho, a mini-sized burger stuffed with a tiny a burger patty, a slice of bacon and veggies would be part of the menu too. ;)

That´s why, the merienda( afternoon snack) will sometimes turn into merienda-cena ( early dinner snack) when we go drop by our favorite bar. Dinner time usually starts at 9 pm in Spain and so a 6 or 7 pm snack is normal around here and by the way, you don´t say ¨Buenas noches!¨ until you´ve eaten your dinner. In the meantime, even it´s already past 7 pm, you should say ¨Buenas tardes!¨ still. Got that? ;)

So what do you think?

Oh my Che, I gained a pound just by looking at these pix!

I eat my dinner early, so I suppose that's just merienda-cena for you, lol. I noticed Brazilians and Latin Americans eat dinner late too, so they probably take it from the you guys.
