2016 was a year of intense events here and in the world, so maybe the Christmas atmosphere was a little late. Anyway, December is here and I hope that the promises of love and hope will come as fast as my will for the supper desserts. The fact is that there are foods and foods, but the one with the most personality is Christmas. Just think of the keywords “farofa”, “dried fruit”, “peaches and cherries in syrup” and my stomach takes on a life of its own with an imaginary little song of “pine trees of joy, bring it over there over there over there! ”. Maybe I’m crazy, but I have a slight feeling that this happens to you too (comment here so I don’t feel alone?); D
