    • Sorry to hear that. I really enjoy olives during tapas, so I am really surprise they don’t have much in CR too! Thanks for the compliment about the photos. I really like the purple color of the olive and the blue of the dish. Just goes so well. 🙂

    • Awe. Is that what you will be having today? Tapas lunch/dinner? 🙂 I can totally see you having tapas too! 🙂
      I have been having laptop issues all day at work (not fun), so I ate leftovers at my desk. So glam I know. XD

  1. I hate olives. Your picture actually made me go downstairs and get one out of the jar in our fridge. And I loved it.
    Do you have superpowers? Does your camerawork? Or is the power of Olives finally reaching me? 😉

    • Hi Choc Chip, you know what?!? You made me laugh. Thanks for the compliment! 🙂 you know in some culture or belief, Olives are highly prized and are considered one of the foods for gods. ooooohhhhh….Lol. Enjoy your day!

  2. I’ve never seen purple olives – where are they from? Only seen black and green. Sorry for my ignorance or lack of knowledge of olives 🙂

    • Hi Amritpal. 🙂 Oh my gosh, don’t worry about it. I am no expert on olives either. Oh dear, I just like to eat them! 😀 I did look this up after your question and found that they (olive pickers?) harvest them in the green/purple stage. Also, the above we had in a Greek restaurant, so they are pickled in wine and vinegar so that also enhance the color as they probably pickled the olives in red wine. And from that, they probably get their beautiful purple hues. Thanks for coming by and commenting, hope to see you here again soon. 🙂

      • 🙂 Thank you for doing the research. I never knew they were harvested in a particular stage, interesting.
