Pre-drinks !

Pre-drinks !

No, I'm not suggesting pre-loading, pre-drinks fashionable of late with the uni fraternities 😉 Just a Cava or two in the sunshine with friends before Sunday lunch. Obviously, it's good to add a nibble or two, something savoury and salty gets the taste buds going. As...

March Madness. The cold weather continued and finally, the promised rain that we'd all been longing for, for months arrived, arrived and didn't stop! The land, reservoirs and, rivers were dry, our water supplies were threatened to be non-existant for the future.  This...

Baby it’s cold outside!

Baby it’s cold outside!

This week the snow is BACK !! Last week we were basking in temperatures in the warm 20’s and now the thermometer isn’t getting above 8c in the day and freezing at night.  It adds to the January reality that it’s not always sunshine and siestas and that we’re going...

Liquid Gold, Olive Oil.

Liquid Gold, Olive Oil.

14 years ago when we moved to La Rosilla, we were definitely wet behind the ears, and certainly wearing, rose-coloured specs 😉 buying a small ‘Finca’ on the side of a mountain, with 600 sq metres of Olive trees planted or should I say clinging to the slopes, trees...

Spring has sprung !

Spring has sprung !

My goodness it was a long time coming, after what has seemed an age of rain, wind and storms and cooler than average temperatures, we woke up at the weekend to blue skies and sunshine. We enjoyed breakfast alfresco, and drinks and canapés with friends before a long leisurely sunday lunch. We even got up […]

Poco hecho, for me !

Poco hecho, for me !

How do you like your steak cooked? I won’t judge, well maybe only a little 😉 Are you from the cremated side or just off mooing? For me, it’s rare or poco hecho as they call it here in Spain, plump, rested and juicy. It took me years to master the perfect steak, always looked and seemed […]

Tapear.

Tapear.

Never will I tire of ‘Tapeando’ with friends and family, this is the art and I like to call it that, of enjoying Tapas from one place to the next. A small bite and a copa de vino or Jerez, standing at a bustling bar, or in the market. Maybe indulging in a little lengthier time and […]

Desayunar

Desayunar

I love the way the Spanish have a verb ‘To breakfast’ Desayaunar it’s what you do, together with friends or on your own to ‘take 5’, mid-morning when you hit that slump and coffee is needed, and you just need that something to get you through to late lunch. Over the years of me living […]

Veganliscious

Eager to explore new food trends, tastes and, seasonal produce that are hitting the Malaga streets, I was not disappointed with my first visit to Raw Attitude in the trendy Soho district of the city.  A small and intimate eatery with a fabulously stocked vegan, raw food and, health supplies shop. Choosing to seat alfresco and […]

Friday Night, Fake-Away.

Friday Night, Fake-Away.

Some of us, or most are us are cutting back one way or another, it just seems the January rite of passage.  Some of you may have already thought ‘tosh’ to the resolutions, January is tough enough as it is without, watching my weight, losing the booze, or tightening the purse strings, if that’s your […]
