LAST NIGHT WOULD HAVE BEEN Mesón Salvador’s annual Halloween dinner (click here). It was too big an event to host during the pandemic, so the party was off. But, since we were already masked, San Geraldo and I decided to go there for a simple meal.
Dudo and I had spent most of the day in bed together. San Geraldo joined us for a siesta, which made Dudo (and me) ecstatic. So, my back had a good long rest and I was able to comfortably sit through a delicious dinner (the only kind of dinner at Mesón Salvador). And, even if we still aren’t permitted to hug, we feel hugged whenever we’re there.
Thanks to the curfew, we were home at 10:15. Everyone, including the staff of Mesón Salvador has to be off the streets by 11. Not a very traditional Halloween, but then Halloween isn’t a Spanish tradition. It looks like today will again be spent on my back in bed — doing nothing.
ANOCHE HABRÍA SIDO LA CENA anual de Halloween de Mesón Salvador (haz clic aquí). Fue un evento demasiado grande para albergarlo durante la pandemia, por lo que la fiesta se canceló. Pero, como ya estábamos enmascarados, San Geraldo y yo decidimos ir allí para una comida sencilla.
Dudo y yo habíamos pasado la mayor parte del día juntos en la cama. San Geraldo se unió a nosotros para una siesta, lo que hizo que Dudo (y yo) estuviéramos extasiados. Entonces, mi espalda tuvo un buen descanso y pude sentarme cómodamente a disfrutar de una deliciosa cena (el único tipo de cena en Mesón Salvador). E, incluso si todavía no se nos permite abrazar, nos sentimos abrazados cuando estamos allí.
Gracias al toque de queda, llegamos a casa a las 10:15. Todos, incluido el personal de Mesón Salvador, deben estar fuera de las calles a las 11. No es un Halloween muy tradicional, pero Halloween no es una tradición española. Parece que el día de hoy lo volveré a pasar boca arriba en la cama, sin hacer nada.

Happy you had a good dinner at your favorite place. V. quiet Halloween here. Left the lights off, but almost didn’t matter. My DH said he only saw two kids walking around with flashlights and only a couple of houses with lights on signaling treats. Usually we have 50 or more kids–as folks usually drive their kids into our neighborhood from other areas. Hanging out in bed sounds about right…we did the time change this weekend. Everyone will be screwed up for the next few days…and then the election. Talk about screwed, if the Supreme Court decides…
I’m not surprised by how few kids were out treat-or-treating. And I’m a bit relieved, although sad for the kids. What Trump and his cronies have managed to destroy in four years is unbelievable. And the Supreme Court is a nightmare. Hoping he’s not in for another four, but can’t imagine what’s going to happen as a result no matter who wins. Sorry! But back to Mesón Salvador. Sheer happiness!
Rest is good.
Be easy on yourself and you will be better in no time.
A serious frost here last night……-3C right now. SG couldn’t handle it. Some days we can’t!! lol
By last night, my mood had crashed. But, I’m getting there. Wish I had a clue what I did to cause this. –3C! Nope. SG couldn’t handle it. I couldn’t either.
Chef David! Ooh.La.La.
And SG really masks all the way up!
As usual, more Meson Salvador Food Porn!
Chef David is a sweetheart, too. No chef attitude from him. Amazing talent. I wish we could enjoy Mesón Salvador every day. But we’re always kind of nervous being out AND we’re waiting to get our flu shots (appointments next week), which adds to our nervousness.
if I came to visit, I would never want to leave meson salvador! menz, food, menz, drinks, menz. ay carumba! you and SG are so cute together.
Well, as you know, before covid we were at Mesón Salvador for something or other almost every day of the week.
Two masked men went in a restaurant, and were treated to great service and wonderful food, how 2020.
2020 in an alternate Universe (Mesón Salvador)… and I’m glad we found it.
Sheep!!! I have a bad case of mask envy!
I would send you one, but my mail rarely gets to my brother lately … and mail from the States to here has been problematic, too, so I don’t have confidence you’d ever get the mask.
LOL — those guys are such flirts, with those sultry eyes over their masks. 🙂
(I mean Adrian et al, but you guys are flirty too. LOL)
Yeah, we are. But nowhere near as adorable 40 years later!
Lolo flirts with everyone and makes us ALL feel so loved. Before the restrictions, regular customers he knew would get kisses from him when they arrived. He is a charmer, and so kind. He’s got a son of about 4 who has the same exact eyes.
Hope bed rest helps your back. That is no fun. But your dinner out sure looks like fun!
Dinner out was just what the doctor ordered. But I wish he’d order something else for these last two days. It’s getting better. I need to shut up and take it.
You two eat the most delicious-looking food. I love your sheep mask.
Most of our masks were made by our friend Judy in Seattle. SG’s wearing one in the photo. The sheep mask was made by two women with a sewing shop nearby. They’ve got hundreds in their windows and I wanted to support them. This was the first one I spotted. I love it. And it holds up really well in the wash. All of Judy’s do.
Love all your food photos, it looks so delicious. Those olives are great, we had them in Spain. Hope the lockdown is not too hard on you fellows.
Of course every Spanish place serves olives here and they’re usually good. But Mesón Salvador always serves the best. I thought that bowl was a work of art. I usually devour the entire bowl myself. SG hates olives. Fortunately, we’re not [yet — again] in lockdown. The curfew is a bit challenging for a culture that dines late, but we need to do what we can. It’s frustrating that there are scattered protests. But it’s nothing like the USA. Wishing you both well!
todas los hombres enmascarados son muy guapo!
stinks Blogger ate my comment again!
Todos los hombres son muy guapo!
It didn’t eat it. Both comments came in. Don’t know what’s up. Also, like you, I’m on WordPress. (And blogger is driving me crazy when I comment.)
No he estado recibiendo su blog pero espero que ahora eso se ha arreglado. Voy a tratar leer muchos de ahora en adelante. Es muy util para mejorar mi español. Buena suerte con su espalda y besos a SG y a tu.
