Today was Red






Piquillo peppers from Las Ventas - stuffed with goat cheese warmed under the broiler with shaves of garlic and good Spanish olive oil

Olives were warmed on stove top with thyme from garden, shaves of garlic and red pepper flakes


Close up, I love the thin shaves and soft light on the cheese.








ready to eat


This was actually just sizzling still - lost the bubbles as I adjusted stupid auto flash!


No fancy umbrellas...







strawberry stem










These berries are a bit early so not as sweet as I'd hoped. May be that they'll end up in a buttermilk cake tomorrow.

Still pretty to look at. Not bad to eat.
