Sarika recalls a trip to Spain. Hotel breakfasts in Spain offered cereals, fruits, cooked breakfast, cheeses, hams, different flavoured yogurts, coffee, juices and two very popular breakfast food we enjoyed were Spanish bread pudding topped with sugar and cinnamon or honey and Spanish Omelette. After returning home she made Spanish Omelette, a couple of times, and every time her husband and son loved it. They keep their Spain trip alive with the Spanish Omelette. Here’s the recipe, in the weekly column, exclusively for Different Truths.
We are different in many sense, I mean my husband and I, but travelling is one common interest which we enjoy together in fact our son too. New places, new adventure, new roads, new people and new food always attracts me. When we travel, we not only discover new places, we also discover ourselves. So, last May we decided to travel Spain, and had fabulous time with sun, sand and the beaches. Many people skipped Spain trip during Europe trip, considering it will be very hot in May. But we had lifetime experience from our Spain trip. It is a very happening place – in the sense there’s always something new to do. Apart from hills, parks, woodland, Gothic cathedral, Picasso museum, markets, sea, beaches the best part of the Spain is its food culture. Food plays a very important role in this country. Spanish food is very healthy and delicious too. For seafood lovers it is a heaven.
Spanish usually eat small breakfast and large midday meal. But for me breakfast is very important meal of the day, I can’t skip my breakfast, so whenever my husband plans any trip he makes sure we should have proper breakfast. Lucky me!
Our hotel breakfasts in Spain offered cereals, fruits, cooked breakfast, cheeses, hams, different flavoured yogurts, coffee, juices and two very popular breakfast food we enjoyed were Spanish bread pudding topped with sugar and cinnamon or honey and Spanish omelette.
And after returning home I tried my hand on Spanish omelette, a couple of times and every time father and son loved it. We keep our Spain trip alive in our hearts with the Spanish Omelette.
