Have friends coming over next weekend and want to do some tapas. I plan the following, but am worried that it might not be very exciting. Your thoughts/other suggestions please:
Chicken thighs and wings slow roasted in garlic,lemon and parsley Chorizo in red wine Tortilla (spanish omelette) Bocqouronies (sp?) Grilled prawns Potato bravas Butterbeans and bacon Lots of salad and crusty bread Washed down with tons of Rioja
Followed - later - by banoffee pie ( not spanish I know but friend's DH loves it )
I went to tapas on Friday night and had meat paella made with chicken and chorizo and peppers instead of seafood, spicy chilli and torillas and garlic mushrooms - a couple more ideas for you x By the way your sounds lovely, can i come?
Iklboo, I thought of meatballs when planning but thought that it might be a bit too much food. Mind you, I've just had a baby (err, 7 months ago, so need the energy yes, ). Great idea on La Tasca menu too.
Mummytopebs, I think I'd make a hash of paella, I am rubbish with anything rice based.
It sounds like a lot of food. If it was me I would do fewer dishes and more of them. The thing with tapas is, it's small portions isn't it? So if everyone wants the grilled prawns for example, there will be loads left over.
