We started off with Scotland in January, and in February we went to Spain, metaphorically speaking.
For main course, Mr E cooked Cocido Montanes, which is a meaty tomato and bean stew, which according to good old Wikipedia is "originally from and most commonly found in the autonomous community of Cantabria in northern Spain".
|Taking hearty to a new level!|
As the sweet dish, Mr E made Torta de Aciete which are sweet biscuits from Seville which are made with almonds, sesame seeds, olive oil, flour and flavoured with anise.
Mini-M was very interested in these - mainly because a) they were biscuits and b) involved rolling out, which instantly increases the appeal of whatever is being cooked!
As for the cultural element, we listened to some tracks by Pablo Alboran and watched the film "Inconsciente" which was good, but in a rather bizarre way.
|The last Torta de Aceite...|
|And finally, Mini-M showing off a new discovery - hand art - this is apparently a flamingo.|
