Mixed salad with a nut roast for lunch. Very colourful. Il Matrimonio groaned at the notion of a dingy nut roast, but has decided that ackshleee it was r-a-t-h-e-r delicioso, and I am duly allowed out of the dog-house, and indeed, am being made a coffee even as I type.
There's a certain theme to the food todayI looked up nut roast and unlike spotted dick... it's exactly what it sounds like.
Well, goodness, I am quite touched as I don't often get foody requests, particularly since I cooked my famous 'Chicken Outrage' for the kids, but here is an old pic of a gin and tonic cheesecake I made for my other and far better half:
It's a village in the mountains north of Madrid, and as far as I know there's been some kind of settlement here since the bronze age, but what you see in the pic is probably not much more than a century old. The village had been slowly dying until the government decided to invest a bit, and then young families started moving out of the city looking for the good life. Fifteen years ago there were fewer than 200 people here. Now there are 700, and me and mine are among the good-life lot.
