Biking & Baking in Las Alpujarras

We've been in Spain for over 4 years now - plus 4 motorbikes - and a horse - join us for the ride!

Quick tapas
18 August 2013 @ 23:10

We've grown some very small green peppers this year with just one thing in mind...tapas...they're delicious quick-fried and salted and eaten with a glass of cerveza!  Also on the quick tapas list are lightly toasted almonds, garlic cloves soaked in olive oil (though of course these need to have been marinaded long before), langoustines cooked with chili, ginger and garlic...and peeled pepinos cut lengthwise and lightly salted.  I'm sure everyone has their favourites.

12 of us sat down to dine recently, outdoors in a beautiful garden setting, and after many delicious such tapas we ate homemade kebabs of lamb or pork with peppers, fresh salad, creamy potato with garlic and lots of runner beans with butter.  Puddings (various) included homemade tiramisu, chocolate brownie with hazelnuts and little custard cakes bought in Granada.  All washed down with some excellent wines and liqueurs to follow.  Thank goodness we were walking home, not driving!

Pitres fiesta has been and gone...they lost to Trevelez in the Futbol Grand Final but as ever it was a colourful it's the turn of Ferreirola to send up the fireworks...and almost a full moon too.  Splendid!
