STUFFED SPANISH BELL PEPPER


As the summer months are coming my travel loving soul is whispering within me what for this year? When I am doing this soul talk the first picture that come to my mind is Spain. Spain is the most popular for summer tourism and why not be so the happening sandy beaches of the Mediterranean ,the famous resort like Salou, the city of Barcelona with Benidorm as the leading summer city of Spain ,the volcanic Canary Island .Spain is really a hot destination during summer months. There are plenty of things to do on the beach besides swim. Windsurfing and kite surfing are popular. You can also enjoy a refreshing drink from one of the many beach huts. This is for the day but what about the night?
Spain is also known to have one of the best night lives out of any country. Big cities such as Madrid and Barcelona are favorites amongst the large and popular discothèques. For instance, Barcelona is known as the number one party city for clubs such as Pacha and Razzmatazz, whereas Madrid is famous for its club, Kapital. The discotheques in Spain are known to be open until odd hours such as 7am. The Baleraric Islands, such as Ibizia and Mallorca, are known to be the two big party islands in Europe. These islands are known to be major party destinations, as well as favored summer resorts.
While I am dreaming a great summer tour to Spain I cooked a delicious Spanish Stuffed Bell pepper for dinner.
