Jason has been gone for exactly 4 weeks and there are exactly 4 weeks left until he gets back… so now the countdown will become smaller and smaller.  Yesterday my portuguese friends came over to watch the Portugal-Denmark game (Europe Cup) and we bought some very good quality frozen portuguese sardines to grill.

Grilled portuguese sardines, sprinkled with sea salt, are a traditional portuguese meal (especially in the south of portugal – my favorite place in the world) and yesterday was Saint Anthony’s Day, a day that’s equated to their National Sardines Day… everyone eats them… and so did we…

They were delicious.  Seriously.20120614-093450.jpg
