Is also strawberries time … around here at least.
A little while ago I bought this new cookbook and the first thing I tried from it was roasted strawberries, mostly because it sounded like a strange thing to do, but the result was really very good and I am definitely making them again.
(Should you not have heard of roasted strawberries before, just google it and you will get plenty of instructions on how to prepare them).
is not only on Fridays in our house. The Dorada (gilt-head bream) is our favorite, and baked in salt is the best.
Yesterday I had a very quiet day … most of it in bed trying to get rid of a really irritating cold my husband had managed to pass on to me. So I spent time surfing with my new tablet and listening to some really inspiring TED talks too.
Below is one of the ones I listened to: the NY chef Dan Barber on How I fell in love with a fish. He is talking about the Dorada. And not just any Dorada. Have a watch/listen. It’s really good.
Have a great weekend.
are not really part of our daily menu,
but once in a while we like to make this simple pizza and with with a glass of wine we have a very nice meal.
Cornerview this week is about potatoes with … more ideas starting at Francesca’s FuoriBorgo.
So the weekend was really hot … afternoons around 45 C and and nights around 30 C.
The appetite is not the biggest in weather like this, but fresh tomatoes, Gallician style octopus and fresh fruit are nice and do not require much time in the kitchen or by the stove.
are best in June, July and August we learned.
Around here it is said sardines are best to eat in the months without a r in its name (in Spanish) so we intend to eat a lot in June, July and August.
I bought a couple of this funny looking squash the other day at the organic market that takes place every weekend in different towns in the valley area where I live. I forgot the exact name of it, but they told me that I had to use fill it and bake it. So I did, but I didn’t have a recipe and the result was not too successful.
I made the filling with some cooked quinoua, garlic, onion, wallnuts green peber and basil leaves and chilies. I also added some egg mixed with yogurt and cheddar cheese and then baked it. However, it did not have very much taste. Do you have a good recipe for stuffed squash?
For the coffee we had something very tasty … and sweet. In the morning I had just been to the postoffice to pick up a parcel from RosaMaría. In was two lovely colorful mini quilts and also some yummi caramels. Thank you so much RosaMaría.
