My kind of food!

One of the things I love about this time of year is being able to eat tapas or mezze style food, especially if you can get outside to do it.  I love the sharing food, everyone getting stuck in, and also being able to experience lots of different flavours and textures.  It is even better when quite a few of you are eating and you all chip in a bit!!  Relaxed dining at its best.

This was just a simple supper I made a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately we were unable to eat it outside as it had got a little nippy.  Here we have (from the bowl of salad and going clockwise) a mixed salad with a simple dressing of virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, Spanish omelette, bread, marinated olives (our favourites are from the olive counter in Booths), and finally baked feta.

Unfortunately I should be organising our stuff to go away so I don't have time to share how to do the omelette or the feta, but I will as soon as we get back so that you too can enjoy them over the summer!!

Although I love cooking, I am looking forward to having some time where I don't have to plan or make food!

mmmm looks tasty! I love mezze-style eating too - although it's normally just the two of us and it tends to be gone within 5 minutes!! Would definitely like to see the recipes for baked feta and the spanish omelette as they look SOOO delicious! But have fun while you're away and look forward to your post when you return!
