As I said in my previous post, nothing lasts forever and the cold back .The cloudy days are back with light rain falls, some days are bright blue but unbearably cold that makes you want stay at home.
To me these are special days to eat a good homemade meal. These things that will comfort the soul and warm up the heart.
The idea is to bring some color to my food to contrast with the cold days outside.
And what better than red tomatoes, green peas, fresh, crisp spinach leaves and soft potatoes And of course, yellow eggs yolk that recalls a sun.
With this amount of color and texture to the kitchen I was inspired to make a fettuccine with fresh tomatoes, oregano from my garden and peas with a tread of olive oil and chicken cubes.
In spite of the cold intensom the weekend was sunny and very very cold.
Spanish tortilla with spinach, bacon and shallots was our dinner last night, Warm, perfect for a cold night. But , also good for a picnic, I like cold too, for when the day are warmer.
And finally, to end the holiday there was here an orange flan with caramel sauce.
Have a good week.
