Holiday Food Trivia

Ok. Here goes. It’s late on Christmas Eve here in Portugal and we’re going to play a little holiday food trivia. I’m in the mood to give something away and to share with you just a little bit about the zany place in which we live.

Below you’ll see a picture that Nina took today as she was making a traditional holiday Christmas meal and the game is this…The first person, WITHOUT ANY PRIOR KNOWLEDGE of what happened today, that leaves a comment which correctly identifies the food in question will win a small but very Portuguese prize. You will be able to choose from three different items that we will reveal in a post on Wednesday, the 26th. If no one correctly guesses the mystery ingredient, by midnight Portugal time on the 26th (+6 from Central Time in the US), the contest will close without a winner.

Share it. Tweet it. Facebook it.

Whatever, but we want somebody to win. So, use any method you know how to figure this one out, comment and win. It’s that easy. We really want to give something away!

So…without further ado..


No hints other than the ones already given. You’ve got a little more than 49 hours to go.

So, let the games begin!
