Had a lunchtime 'blow out' today. Our grandson has been staying with a friend down in Albufeira for the last week, so we thought we'd take them somewhere a bit different. Took them to Picanha Brasa, a Brazilian Rodizio, always good for hungry teenagers.
The idea is simple a selection of buffet style cold dishes, plus rice, black beans, baked bananas etc etc. Then the waiters come to the table with great hunks of meat on swords and slice off what ever you want, the outside is crispy and well cooked the inside as rare as you want. Then the meat goes back on the BBQ to carry on cooking. There were fourteen different cuts of meat from beef, pork, lamb, chicken, gammon, plus whole BBQ pineapples. There were three coach loads of people there. They got their food and meat from the counters buffet style, but we had a selection of hot dishes put on the table and one waiter to ourselves to keep a steady supply of meat. Even the boys were defeated. The meat beautifully cooked and each cut had a different marinade. All for 15€ a head.

Don't think I could eat any more today, but I was driving so didn't have any wine at lunchtime, so I shall be opening a bottle this evening.

The only odd thing, is that I usually cook something a bit interesting on Saturday night, rather than the usual grab something from the freezer. I feel quite cheated because I really look forward to doing it all.

I shall make a pudding as we were too full to eat any at lunchtime, and by late evening I expect we'll start investigating the fridge to see what we can find.

The Marmelos ( Quinces) are just coming into season, so I'll make a pie with them. We can't get cooking apples but quinces are a good sudstitute. They have a lovely fragrant smell as well as a bit of tang. Mind you it's like trying to peel a concrete apple they are so hard.

Brekky: Cream cheese on half a seed roll, with 2 gourds of mate.

Lunch: a beer at my Russian friend's place, with a serving of her "covered anchovies" ie a dream of a Russian layered salad with anchovy in the bottom. Dessert at home, a banana with peanut butter.

Dinner: Madhi Dal over rice with a side of mixed greens, and then some camembert-type cheese on a rice cake.

Fruit has been conspicuous by its absence today, aside from my fresh-lemon-squeezed-in-water before brekky. I'm supposed to have fruit snacks between meals but I forget.

I,mnot a huge fan of fruit Orinoco, but I believe veggies are better for you anyway. Do you find it hard sometimes to get your full quota, I know I do.
Today I had wholegrain toast for breakfast, a sausage sandwich for lunch and restaurant curry this evening, not a veggie in sight, just some bits of peel in my lemon rice, does that count. I can,t always find room for the extras like fruit and veg. I had wine, is that one of my five a day??xxx

Diamond, I just forget to eat the fruit. I love it, but I get distracted. I am glad oranges etc will soon be in season here, they are not "noisy" to eat like apples etc and my students won't mind if I eat an orange or a clementine in class. I don't suppose they'd mind at all (when you say things like "It's time for my fruit" some will assume you're diabetic, which I'm not) but I don't like crunching away while trying to give a conversation class.
In the 80s the Frugal Gourmet was saying how a glass of (red) wine a day is good for your heart. Spanish people have always known this! So yeah, at least one of those five a day!
