Last Saturday night, already over a week ago!, we had a festa Junina party. Ours wasn’t as good as some; we didn’t have a bonfire - living in the forest and is dry season; we didn’t have a wedding…. maybe more explanation than I can make…., but we did have good food brought by all. I made caldo verde (green soup – is actually delicious potato soup with greens and sausage) and received rave reviews. Camillo made a drink with some (very) cheap red wine seeped with ginger root and cinnamon sticks and then heated short of a boil. I drank one small glass to be polite because he ate a lot of my soup. I didn’t take any photos of the food…. sorry I was having too much fun. We did have live music, one man band playing Forró and we did a square dance with my favorite fitness trainer EDGAR doing the calling. See photos for additional information.
sorry I chopped off Paulista’s head and Tatiana’s feet – you have to just imagine….
I would rate this party as one of the best I have ever been to or given…. nothing like costumes (and drinks of cheap red wine) to set the right tone going in.
