I'm missing Spanish food.
I ate well on the Camino. And I didn't lose weight, principally because I ate so well.
Usual day –
Breakfast – Mother's cake, or Tortilla, or toasted ham and cheese sandwich. Two coffee, sometimes three. Ordered at the same time. One after the other.
Lunch – pilgrim's meal; first course of white bean soup, or paella, or pasta. (Never the mixt salade). Second course grilled chicken, or pork, or thin steak. Third course ice cream. Two Coke Zeros.
Afternoon snack – block of chocolate. Another Coke Zero.
Dinner – either pilgrim's meal again. Sliced chorizo or charcuterie (Spanish cut meats), steak or chicken, home made flan for desert. Red wine, constantly replenished, thanks very much.
I go out to a bar/restaurant, where I have a single steak, a big bloody chunk of cow flesh, grilled, and a decent bottle of wine. At least β¬4 worth. Home made desert. (Avoid the fresh fruit salad)
I know there are some people love Pulpo (Galician octopus) – its not a favourite of mine. Nor paella.
My favourites? Lentil and chorizo soup, steak grilled over a wood fire, and rice pudding. Oh, and Coke Zero.
