Glimpses of a simple sunday Andalusian lunch

Outside, the weather was sunny and a bit chilly. Inside, a sumptuous salad was waiting. My darling Gym treated us to a very cool and delicious lunch yesterday. Our new friend Martin prepared it all and I'm sorry my batteries went kaputt when the homemade smoked salmon made its apparition on the table. I wish I could tell you the recipe, but I'm afraid some details escaped me ! But I can tell you, it was absolutely delicious.
We had cheap Spanish cava (the equivalent of champagne) but like we say in France, when the company is merry, champagne is always good even if its cheap.

While waiting for the food to be ready, we nibbled on little goat cheese and walnut canapés under Frieda's benevolent eye.
I think sunday lunches with friends are the best. We always part, making the promise that we must do it at least once a month and luckily we almost never fail. It also gives another color to mondays !

I agree, having lunch with friends is a delight! On Saturday our friends from France, invited us to their home and we shared a wonderful meal, followed by a walk along the beach.

I am so looking forward to your picnics and lunches and weekends away during spring & summer. The pictures you take allow us all to feel we're in Spain... albeit briefly. Hope spring arrives early for you ;-)
