love affair

Jackie and I were talking today and we decided that we both have a serious love affair… with cooking American food here in Spain. I don’t know what it is, but I don’t feel so different when I can make something so typically “homey” here. Finding certain ingredients and mastering the use of ancient cooking equipment (without lighting ourselves on fire) is truly a game for us now. The moment we find some elusive ingredient (aka REAL pancake syrup) we have a mini celebration and we cook! I started this monster, and it grows every week! It started with pancakes, but it’s snowballing into more complicated fare. For instance, Jackie made chicken-fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy today, and I’m planning my next big “American” meal as we speak (TBD).

Good thing we are doing plenty of extra walking…
