Today, we had some friends over for lunch. This will be the last gathering we’re having before the tourist season officially starts for us. The hubs and I only work during the tourist season here in Mallorca (May – October). The rest of the year, I am a SAHM and enjoys it a lot. We also enjoy the rest of the year to catch up with friends and family because during the tourist season we work 7 days a week, no days off. We were busy preparing the units (apartment) of Villa Portillo which we rent to tourists, taking advantage of the 2 weeks spring vacation of my kids.
Today, we had a really delicious Paella Mixta (vegetables, seafoods and meat). Look at that!
If this picture can describe how the kitchen smelt while we were making this paella…
We served it with lettuce salad.
It was delicious! We made paella good for 12. We were only 8 but practically, nothing was left after we attacked the delicious paella! ^^) The kids had these Lemon Shortbread cookies dipped in chocolate I made using this recipe. They loved it so much thay the cookies were gone in a minute!
I still had some melted chocolate left after dipping the cookies into it so I dipped some fresh strawberries in it. Everybody loved it!
We also had carrot cake for dessert which I made using this recipe from Cookin’ Up Good Times. I did not frost it but I just decorated it on top with what was left of the melted chocolate. It was incredibly delicious! It was a hit with the guests!
We had a lovely time though it rained then snowed in the afternoon. With the fireplace on, we were warm and cozy!
Have a lovely sunday everyone!
