Aveiro is a wonderful city. It’s true that most people know it because of the”ovos moles”, but there are also other less obvious charms : we have the Ria de Aveiro and white and long sandy beaches. We have fresh fish and fantastic seafood and we also have one of the best universities in the country and Europe. We are one step from the North of Portugal … literally one foot in the mountains and the other one in the sea.
But despite all this, if there’s one thing I hate is that August is synonymous of windy mornings and evenings. I’m not sure why … since I can remember, the summers are really windy wich can spoil any beach day.
I think over the years we value different things. When I was a kid, I spent the afternoon on the beach, toasting in the sun, swiming in the icy water and never complaining … my summer was like that. Today I have exquisite tastes (so to speak) and honestly I don’t have any patience to be toasting on the sand like a lizard … under the umbrella it’s fine for me..I’ll be there for a couple of hours … more than that I simply can’t do it!
So these holidays, and already with a belly of almost eight months, I’ve been preparing all the baby’s things, or watching movies and series. Some days I like to go to the beach (but only for a while), but most often I entertain myself with uncomplicated cooking: like this galette! Quick to prepare and so tasty! Success guaranteed!
