Food, glorious food… Let me be honest, I like to shop for food, I love to cook and I certainly like to eat. If possible with a glass of wine or a nice cold beer. Like this one…
By the way, as I just wrote on Instagram, lockdown or not, life in Spain is still beautiful…
It’s true that the lockdown influences what you can cook and eat. When the hoarding started, we suddenly found ourselves with less choices in the local supermarkt. So, I had to adapt myself and 3 weeks into the lockdown, I discovered that this whole situation has made me more creative in my cooking actually!
I made curry last evening with chicken sausages, onions, garlic, peppers, tomatoes, curry paste and cream instead of coconut milk. I know, I know, not exactly a traditional Indian dish, but it was delicious and that is what is most important!
When I made this couscous, the only meat available in the supermarket were hamburgers! So, I cut them in pieces and stir-fried them with leftover vegetables. Then I mixed everything with couscous, spices and eggs. Again, not something traditional, but it was so yummy.
Sometimes the Viking cooks… Lots of deep-fried food, I added the salad.
Sorry for the quality of the pictures, but I shot all of these with my phone. Anyway, the picture above features my take on a Greek salad.
Anyway, lockdown or not, hoarders or not, we are still eating well here in Spain! And, excuse me now, I am going to finish my Belgian beer.
