by the way...

Speaking of sandwiches, maybe Spain's sandwiches aren't world famous, but tostas are incredible. A crusty, thick, ot piece of bread with tomato, olive oil, cheese or whatever else you can imagine. We've been looking for tomato marmelade all over Santiago to play with its flavors on tostas or with meats. We spent some time searching for it on New Year's Eve at the Corte Ingles Gourmet shop, at Hipercor, at Eroski with no luck-then as should happen yesterday we came across it at Dia%-Spain's version of a discount supermarket. We tried it today on warm tostas with a bit of jamon serrano and the tomato marmalade was perfect a little sweet with the freshly cut, salty ham (from our kitchen! We have a pata de jamon in the house!)
