Entroido Again

It is that time of year when madness hits the streets of Friol and everyone dresses up and bar crawl around Friol playing music and enjoying themselves. Yes it is Entroido or Carnival, an ancient celebration,  traditionally frowned up on by the Catholic Church where tricks are played upon people and masks are worn.
As ever the evening turns to merry making and feasting with traditional food. Pigs heads, stuffed pigs stomachs, turnip greens, potatoes and chickpeas. For desert we had pancakes, a sweet biscuit called pigs ears and all was washed down with wine. This is one of my favourite fiestas of the year and a wonderful tonic when the weather is at it's worst.
