I’ve been away on holiday – did you miss me? Of course you did, silly me for thinking otherwise! We decided at the last minute, after far too many rainy days, to go to Portugal for some sunshine. It was beautiful – check out that blue sky!
We ate mostly fish – sea bass, stone bass, golden bream, delicious garlic prawns and a lovely Portuguese seafood bean stew. If fish is good for the brain, then I must be a brainbox!
We ate in a couple of nights and I made pasta with tomato sauce – nice and simple. It makes such a difference when you can buy lovely fresh plum tomatoes. The tomatoes looked far from perfect but the taste was amazing.
We enjoyed a glass or two (I was on holiday, who’s counting!) of the Planalto wine which I discovered when I was here earlier in the year.
I had planned to take photos of all the food I ate but sadly by the time I remembered, it was too late…..
A week or so in the sunshine doing very little – reading, enjoying the sunshine, the food and the wine – and I’ve come home feeling very refreshed. 🙂
