Cranking up the Stove


I know some people like to sky-dive or bungee jump.  It really gets their adrenaline going.  But I prefer my own adrenaline inducing activity– “extreme cooking.”  Not much could be more exciting than pulling together a splendid Spanish meal for friends. So here’s what I’m doing today:

–Dash over to Trader Joe’s for sunflowers wine and bread
–On to the grocer’s for a few more things
–Run a dust cloth around the house and plump the pillows
–Then cook like crazy all day in my kitchen with the flamenco music  turned up high.
–And set a pretty table
–Finally, meet friends at the door with hugs and sit down to eat/talk into the night…

Now that’s a good day.

PS- What’s for dinner?  Spanish potato tortilla, olives, salami, cheese and olive bread for starters.  Then pans of chicken/seafood paella, a crunchy green salad and substantial bread.  Strong coffee and cheese cake wind it up.
