Bangers and Mash with onion gravy. Recipe for the 5th of November (Celebrating Guy Fawkes and the Bonfire Night)

Bangers and Mash with onion gravy. Recipe for the 5th of November (Celebrating Guy Fawkes and the Bonfire Night)

I’ve already told you that Halloween marks the beginning of the Celebration Season for me. Halloween has always been my favourite celebration. I remember naming every dish with a disgusting name. I’ve made a grown-up dinner today, but in order to keep it up with Sílvia from the past, here we go: •Jack-o-lantern puke with poisonous peppers. •Baby dragon wings with sweet potatoes covered in ghost plasma •Bloodinade to drink There you go! Happy halloween . . . . #halloween…

Día de los Muertos: Tacos two ways

Día de los Muertos: Tacos two ways

Today is the Day of the Dead (or Día de los Muertos as they say in Spanish). This Mexican tradition is known everywhere in the world. I always enjoy celebrating anything, even when I learnt about it two days ago (not in this case, but happens to me all the time). Celebrations are excuses to investigate on other people’s traditions, learn and of course cook something different. Today I made tacos for lunch and I’m cooking tacos for dinner right…

Another Tapas Contest: Tapas Picadillo in Coruña I

Another Tapas Contest: Tapas Picadillo in Coruña I

I’ve already told you that I get very anxious when something big related to food happens near me. Tapas Picadillo contest is always a good example. I even get to the point where I hate the contest for existing and making me take such hard decissions. And always the same question in my head…which tapas shall I try this year? This time I decided to take it easy and make a “small” selection of the tapas that I needed to…

Mr. Sandwich: Protein party in a chicken sandwich (Super easy & Super quick)

Mr. Sandwich: Protein party in a chicken sandwich (Super easy & Super quick)

I’ve started running (again but seriously). The other day I had in mind a veggie risotto for lunch so I went for a long run to a supermarket. When I arrived, my body thought about the risotto and laughed at me. I needed meet and bread. I am a wise woman 🙄 so I didn’t contradict my body…I know I should listen to whatever stupid decision it makes. So I bought chicken breast fillets and bread. When I headed home,…

Tomato Steak

Tomato Steak

I’ve been in Madrid for a week before a gig and I came back to Galicia with a bunch of photos, some ideas, and my belly full. One of those ideas was this Tomato Steak. I’ve visited a nice place with good wine and food called Celso y Manolo in Chueca. Although I couldn’t eat there, I tried some of their wines. I inspected the menu, anyway, and found this interesting concept called “Tomato steak”. The plump, oversized, ripe tomatoes…

Lugo Tapas Contest

Lugo Tapas Contest

Isn’t it ironic? A city where they offer you a free tapa with each drink anywhere holding a contest in which you have to pay for the tapas. Well, maybe not ironic, but your belly has to be ready for something like that. I’ve visited the city twice while this happened, they still offered you the free tapa even after ordering a paid one. I really wanted to try as many places as possible. It wasn’t possible to try more…

Mijo Minibar Strikes Again

Mijo Minibar Strikes Again

Ooops! I did it again! I went to Mijo Minibar and it was, as expected, delicious. Carlos and I decided to go do some busking in Vigo. We always love spending time there. After a morning playing in Ourense, we head towards Vigo in order to grab something to eat. Carlos suggested Mijo and I couldn’t say no. With our drinks came a glass of complementary olives and pickles, as well as some hummus. I was very glad about the…
