“Basically, though, I believe in eating well, not too much but eating a variety of foods.” Joan Collins
A weekend – somewhat of a mixed bag.
While visiting a local food market The Hungry Mrs and I happened upon Las Paelleras serving up Spanish stew and Paella which seemed perfect to begin what was to turn out to be a Saturday afternoon visiting some of the local hostelries in the area. TKA having decided he didn’t fancy it!
And tasty it was too. We were told it was past it’s best but if that was the case then I’ll be sure to get to them earlier in the day next time. Cheers fellas.
We also then met a great bloke called Ian who was selling some of the vegan and vegetarian food he makes. His food is featured at the Topaz Cafe in Ashton-Under-Lyne which is soon to begin opening on a Saturday. More to come on this.
Having relaxed slightly too much on Sunday morning it then dawned on me that I had agreed to make lunch for some friends. Slight panic done I got to it – ably assisted by you know who.
Half an hour later a delicious dish of Penonni with Mushroom Sauce and Garlic Bread was all cooked up and we were good to go.
Nothing too intricate or complicated. Just that little “kiss” which Italian cooking hands to good ingredients and then puts in front of loved ones to enjoy.
Simple. Try it. You will like it.
