This week has gone by in a blur, Bruce found a fishing spot inland from Oliva so about an hour from us. He went off on I think Tuesday (told you I was confused), and had such a great time that he was telling his fishing buddy Jim, all about it that evening. … so the boys then plotted to go again on Friday as it was a bank holiday here. So, they went off and to show,my support I made muffins! I like to help where I can! !
These are great muffins as they have whatever you have in your cupboard in them! In this particular case it was choc drops, cranberries, pecan nuts – yep, those ones I got from Fuengirola and shelled and toasted myself. Anyway the rest of the muffins are now safely hidden in the freezer, ready for the next fishing trip!
We had a gig at the Calpe Mar campsite for Bruce on Thursday night, then were off on Friday evening so hubby decided he would cook, so he booked a table at our local pizzeria La Piscina. It’s a great place and I managed to get some photos of the open kitchen where we were treated to a pizza base Frisbee display from the owner Marcelo.
We did read the whole menu at the restaurant, but as normal ended up with the usual – bread and allioli (garlic mayo), mussels, and then ham and mushroom pizza with garlic and extra cheese. We did succumb to the vino at Piscina, but then at only 5€ a bottle we didn’t feel too bad ordering the second bottle…. well only the following morning, but that was quickly mopped up with a bacon sandwich for Bruce and a fried egg one for me! But Al in all a great week and the weather this weekend has meant that the electric blanket and winter duvet are well packed away….summer has arrived!
