In the absence of anything REALLY interesting to share, I'd like to talk about my latest food obsession... A woman that I work with introduced me to this hard-to-describe dish and I made it for myself this weekend. It's like an antipasto sort of thing made from tuna, lots of spanish onions, pickles and tomato sauce. It's a Spanish recipe that goes back generations in her family. She gave out the recipe last week and I made it on Saturday to serve as an appetizer at our Easter lunch on Sunday. I took a picture of it here but of course it's not very impressive looking. You can eat it on crackers, with pasta, as a side with almost anything. Something about the salty and tangy flavours really does it for me! In the absence of White Spot cheeseburgers, this will have to do.
That's about all I have to say today. We Easterners are suffering through some really lousy weather right now. Basically, it's winter out here until May, then for about a week at the beginning of May the weather gets sort of nice, flowers come out and everything, then after that, it's just hot. Since it's April, we're still in the winter part. It's wet and slushy and crazy windy. The general mood around town is blah. A bit like this post! Let's just say I'm feeling a little homesick these days :)
