I would really like to make them this weekend.

I know it's just potatoes in a tomato sauce but how do I cook the potatoes and how what does the sauce consist of?

Thank you.

It's DH's birthday on Saturday and BIL and SIL are coming so I thought I'd do some Tapas.

Any suggestions are welcome but I haven't got much in as I haven't planned for it properly.

So far all I'm doing is Honey and lemon grilled chicken and patatas bravas.

Do you really want to travel to Barnsley?!!!

If I make spanish ommlette that means I'll have to buy Chorizo Sausages and they'll be eaten before they get in the blummin ommlette!

I have just stuffed myself with doritos and guacamole, lovely fattening, yummy.

I'm off to look for a diet thread know

Iota there is a recipe for Albondigas on that last link you gave me and this is my next question.

Could I do Beef and lamb instead of pork or would that not be a good idea?

dropinthe Thu 07-Apr-05 14:30:47

Gosh,Tapas is my favourite food! Whymmummy-I have written your suggestions down and am planning a party right now!!
