Return from Sunnier ShoresJuly 22nd, 2007
Hi everyone, I’m back from a week in sunny Menorca where Rob and I got a break from this awful weather here in Britain. It was the perfect lazy holiday – lounging by the pool, reading, and of course eating and drinking.
The Spanish food was fantastic and the portions so big – the plate of melon and ham and the mussels were starters! The waiters chuckled when I tried to order paella for one; it’s cooked for two in a huge paella pan which is easily big enough for four people. We knew we were in trouble when we saw the size of it. Our waiter told us he’d tried three times to eat it all and had never yet suceeded. What we did manage to eat was amazingly good. Lunch most days was french bread, cheese and serrano ham, which I became addicted to. The rosé wine was good, heavier and more like a chilled red, and of course the cava, which I drink a lot at home, was great too.
I’ll leave you with some pictures and will post again very soon.
PS How are you getting on with ‘In the Bag’ this month? I’m really looking forward to seeing the veggie dishes you come up with.
