This hot weather has blown my meal planning out of the water. Just when the time comes to be enjoying chowders and risottos with corn or mushrooms, the thermometer tips 10 degrees higher than in August on my holiday!! Oh well, having spent a couple of hours at the allotment, the tomatoes were winking at me. Full, dark red, ripe tomatoes dripping from the bush like Christmas baubles.
Tomato salad. Greenhouse warm, ripe tomato salad. Yes!! That is what I craved this evening. Sadly, tomato salad doesn’t cut it with a 10 year old who only eats beige.
So, to cut a long story a bit shorter, I found myself digging out the frozen squid and making calamari a la Romana. Otherwise known as “calamares fritos con ensalada de tomate” en mi casa.
