Over the past two years, I developed a kind of tradition: At least one evening the week is booked for some me-time; normally either Wednesday or Friday. A few leisure hours. Time to cook something easy, drink a glass of wine (or a beer), watch my favorite tv series (that would be Wednesday) or a serious talk show (that’s Friday), try to complete this damn jigsaw a started some MONTHS ago…
These are the evenings I like most. And I wanted to share with you some of my cooking routine I follow during these special nights. The last weeks were really dominated by the oh-so-tasty pimientos de padròn, but last friday I finally came back to a real classic: I grabbed every vegetable available in my kitchen and nearly every herb I found on my balcony and roasted it all together in a big pot. Afterwards I added some tomato purée and some water, let it cook for a few more minutes, spiced it with pepper and salt and voliá… together with some flatbread I had the most simple, most tasty, most healthy leisure evening meal!
What do you prepare at those evenings for yourself? Do have such personal treats? I would be very happy to know!
