Have I mentioned how much I LOVE churros? It was a good day today. We wandered down to the park near us, hoping to find some kind of Festival de San Juan celebration. We were in luck. There was a live band playing, a Spanish comedian (we didn't find him very funny . . .) lots of people in their 70's and up and CHURROS! At the other side of the amphitheater, there were 4 men making a huge batch of churros. And they were free! So we sat, listened to the comedian, and waited. It was fun to see how they make the churros for such a large group of people. If you're interested in making a really large batch of churros, see below! If you want to make some for yourself, click here. ¡Buen provecho!

Mix dry ingredients.

Add hot water.

Mix and mix and mix and mix. (Get big muscles first.)

Make hot chocolate!

Push dough through huge machinery, and let drop into really hot oil.

Wait in line for your own racion.
Eat the churros dipped in chocolate!!
And share with your daughter.
Enjoy the people who came with you!
WALK home to burn off fat gained from eating fried dough dipped in chocolate.
***Notice the Spanish flag hanging from the window? We saw a few of those on the way home. Why? Because Spain is playing Italy in the Euro cup right now!!! Go Spain!

I love the look on Renae's face in the pic where you are eating the churro. She seems to be saying, "Hey, why isn't that going in my mouth." :-)
