We cannot wait to travel once again within Spain and to Italy.
Still waiting for our vaccine appointments. It is still slow motion …
Food: we have approached the beginning of our green season. I am very salad focused year round. We have approx 18 - 22 degrees centigrade daily. So, we do enjoy sitting on a terrace and just relaxing. It is hard to feed a gentleman just a salad, and some shellfish. He needs a full meal be it meat or fish and a vegetable and a starter, he is Italian and he enjoys his pasta and his risotto.
We are not in a “red” lockdown zone and however, there are restrictions on travelling inter - region.
We are hoping that there is an end to this in 2021.
Today turkey burgers! I make these: Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers. Buttomorrow I’m making artichoke spinach soup with parmesan and cheese ravioli. Probably just toast some sliced french bread, slap some butter on them, and call it carb heaven.
Wasn’t sure how I wanted to cook the chicken when I got home later than I wanted from work, but a Mom recipe quickly came to the rescue: Chicken Diable.
2 Tbsp melted butter, then 1/3 cup honey, 1/4 cup brown mustard, 1 tsp curry powder and s/p all whisked in, chicken pieces rolled in the blend, then baked at 350° for 40 minutes, spooning the sauce over top 2x.
Basmati rice and steamed green beans alongside. And yeah. There was a glass of wine.
See, I think that sometimes we get caught up in what is going to be “perfect” and forget to celebrate that even as we don’t do everything right, or can make tweaks the next time, what we’ve prepared is delicious!
