I kinda knew that Spain will win against Italy. But not that big of a winning! Maybe 2-1 or something... With at least a goal from Italy. From the start, it was obvious that Spain being the aggressor. No doubt with the first goal at the fourteenth minute fired up the Spaniards confidence to win the game.
And then another goal at 41 minutes. Too bad for Italy, I started to think. And since my dad picked the Italian team, he was a bit disappointed at how the game turns out to be. Oh well, I did said that Spain will win and it's hard to contain the glee seeing that I was right. The Spaniards sure have a blast last night celebrating their winning... ^__^
I guess it's only fair to have an indulgent need to celebrate myself though what I have here has nothing to do with Spain at all. Dig in folks!

It was flaky and buttery. slightly sweetened, so perfect to pair up with a cup of tea! Notice here that I used dried cranberries instead of raisins. Not traditional, but that's what I've got in the cupboard. Next time though, the raisins!
