Sadly we said goodbye to this year World Cup a way earlier than I wished, we did not play pretty so I guess it is the least we deserve but still I am very proud of my team as always, GO PORTUGAL! Better luck in two years for the European Cup or in 4 for the World again. As for now best of luck for all the nations that are still on the run for the gold cup!
Always proud of my nation, always proud of being Portuguese ❤
Where have I been?? Such a long time without writing!! How are you all doing? 😀
As for me the reasons that I haven’t been writing are quite good, I have got home and have been happily busy going to the beach, being with my friends and enjoying my beloved country! 🙂 Cause at the end of the day you know what? There’s nothing like the feeling of being home – and having said that here I leave with some photos of the place where my heart will always be – Ericeira, Portugal 🙂 ❤
A Sunday working does not sound very fun but it wasn’t the case, I had so much fun shooting for this new scarf brand coming now to the UK, can’t wait to see the final photos, here is a sneak peak 🙂
And after the shooting I got the chance to try an amazing Chinese buffet right in the heart of Birmingham, a positive point to Birmingham the buffet was amazing!
Getting even better this was my last work in England before flying back home for the summer! So happy! The weather has been great so I already got the chance to go to the beach… oh this is going to be a great summer! 🙂
Wish you all a great summer my amazing bloggers! 🙂
Since I am back at home I decided to share a very famous Portuguese cake very much loved for most foreigners who come to visit and for us Portuguese as well! It is simpler than it may seem and I promise you to be delicious! It goes great with powder sugar or cinnamon on top or just by itself! The best way to have it is warm. When in store usually is served in individually forms but today I am sharing the Pastel de Nata tart recipe that I hope you enjoy!
So here is what you need:
- 1 1/2 cup of yellow sugar
- 4 tbsp of corn scratch
- 2 cups of milk
- Powder vanilla to taste
- 8 egg yolks
- 1 lemon zest
- 1 shortcrust pastry
1. In a pan mix the sugar, corn scratch, milk, vanilla and lemon zest. Put it in medium heat and stir it until it turns into a creamy thick mixture.
2. Remove it from the heat. Add the 8 egg yolks and stir it until well combined.
3. Place the shortcrust pastry in a round tart shape tray and pour the egg mixture into it.
4. Take it to the oven for about 30 minutes.
And enjoy this delicious Portuguese custard! 🙂
