My ‘now famous on my blog’ friend Miranda came to lunch on Saturday bearing chorizo, fresh tomatoes and fresh herbs. She made Jamie Oliver’s Andalucian Ensalada Sin Nombre.
We had bought some frying steak which I grilled on our cast iron griddle and a decent bottle of Rioja.
For dessert I made Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar.
So we called it the Red Lunch.
I’ve been making some mixed media pictures combining textiles, my photography and haiku for my Open Studio beginning next Saturday.
I showed one to Miranda and she asked, ‘Do you have any red dots?’. Which I didn’t, so I made one.
It will hang throughout my exhibition. What a great way to begin!
To end our red letter day, for dinner, Steve and I had the last of the romesco sauce with seared scallops and green beans.
