This week, show us something (or someone) sweet.

While I don’t have as much of a sweet tooth as my husband, I’d never turn down an opportunity to sit at a cafe to enjoy churros con chocolate: deep-fried dough, sprinkled with sugar, that you dip into a cup of thick chocolate. The pastry is typically shaped as a long, thin stick, and sometimes it’s knotted or curved, as shown in this snapshot of our table at Petritxol Xocoa, a chocolate boutique in Barri Gòtic (the Gothic Quarter) in Barcelona, Spain:

I’m embarrassed to admit how many times we returned for this treat while we were in Barcelona. I’ll just say that by the time we left the city, I was able to find this little cafe — and navigate the narrow, medieval streets of this labyrinthine neighborhood — without getting lost.

What does sweet look like to you? We look forward to your photo submissions this week!

  1. Oml, that looks so yummy! I’m a total chocolate lover, the older I get, the worse it gets, lol! So I totally get the embarrassment at how many times you went back for that chocolate yummy treat… No need to be embarrassed, I’d totally do the same thing if knew where to get this, ha, ha! 😉
