Yesterday I decided to do Tapas. I really love all these delicious little dishes and decided to try to recreate (without any recipes) some of my favourites.
Here's what I made...
Garlic and spinach prawns and scallops with black pudding in a garlic butter sauce.
"Patatas Bravas" and chorizo with char-grilled peppers in a spicy onion and tomato sauce.
Mushrooms and onions in a garlic and flour coating and a little dish of mixed olives and peppers (the stuffed peppers were from Aldi).
Serrano ham and lovely cheese and onion bread (from Supervalu)
Everything looked so lovely and colourful laid out on the table and I was really happy with how everything tasted.
I served all the tapas up in these cute dishes I got at TK Maxx.
It's a real treat to do a bit of cooking like this while the boys are at school, it gives me a chance to have a few hours to sit and really chat with my parents before I collect the boys who love coming home to find their Nana and Grandad there :-)
I'm hoping to try and make churros for dessert next time, this time there were cream cakes :-)
