Chaves a Portuguese ~ Mamaroneck NY

Chaves a Portugues in Mamaroneck NY reminds me a bit of Portugal.  I had the pleasure of going there for the first time a few weeks ago after showing a home in Larchmont.  The custard tarts ~ pasteis de nata ~ were awesome and their homemade sausage ~ chourico ~ was wonderful!

Today, my oldest daughter, Melissa, arrives from Portugal after 2-1/2 weeks of traveling from the southern tip ~ Algarve ~ to the northern tip to visit with her grandma (my mom) ~ Chaves ~ and vacationed most of her stay in ~ Coimbra ~ with her grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins who are also all visiting from the states ~ including her daddy – my honey 😉  who will be there for a total of 3 weeks.
