TAPAS - TRADITIONAL SPANISH NIBBLES that are colourful, varied and full of Mediterranean flavour. What better way to inject a bit of sunshine into life as we approach the darkest and coldest time of the year?
Tapas can be served as pre-dinner bites or in bigger quantities can make up an informal main meal. You can eat it with your fingers, cocktail sticks or a knife and fork, if you wish.
Tapas doesn't have to be expensive as many of the dishes are vegetable based. It is more time consuming than a one pot meal but you can make the preparation easier and more sociable by getting different members of the family involved in selecting and cooking a dish. Hubby takes charge when we have a tapas night and our boys get involved too - so I have no complaints.
Friday nights are a time to stop the clock: a time to discuss or forget about the week gone by; a time to slow down and savour the pleasures of good food and conversation with your favourite people. It's my favourite night of the week.
It should be a fun start to the weekend.

Happy Friday xo
