Pesto, Pea, and Pasta Salad

Right now, at this very moment, I should be working on my thesis.  But there are only so many articles you can read about how poor our medical care is for those who need interpreters or the legislation on multilingual signage.  Also, it’s still hot.  So I’m going to turn on my fan and take a break from academia.

I’ve been traveling around quite a bit, and have had two consecutive family visits to tour around Sevilla, so I haven’t really been in my apartment to cook anything.  One of my favorite waiters and my favorite bars asked if I was working, or if the people with me were “mine”.  Tomorrow I go off to Rome, where I have three or four “best” gelato places to try.  Four days after I get back, I’ll be moving back to the Pacific Northwest (the economic crisis has completely erased any possibility of me getting a job here, and oh god it’s hot).  I do have several more Spanish recipes up my sleeve that I’ll be parceling out over the next year, but for those few of you who follow my blog: there will be a change in tone.  For one, I’ll have access to a full kitchen for a short time, until I finish up my Master’s and strike out on my own.  Again.  I’m going to do my best to keep on with this blog because I love it, but please have mercy if there are gaps (like just before I posted this).

Non-food commentary over.

Feria de Sevilla – Rebujitos

Well, still no cheese steaks.  But I have a good reason!  Feria sneaked up on me.

Hey, I'm Desa. I've been bouncing between the Pacific Northwest and Sevilla, Spain in the last few years and from tiny apartment to tiny apartment. I cook mainly for one, which means some potentially boring meals, but here I'll be sharing the food that excites me. Feel free to offer suggestions, commiseration, or desires. And thanks for coming by!
