¡Viva España!

Germany vs. Spain, Semifinal World Cup Soccer Match

I’m taking Spain’s victory today as an excuse to declare a new challenge for myself: cook my way through the Spanish cookbook that has been lingering on my shelves for at least five years.

Over 150 recipes, some of which I’ve made, many of which will provide new and interesting challenges.  I’m allowing myself to skip 10, with extra special dispensation given to pulpo gallego in honor of Paul the psychic octopus, who called the game in favor of España.  ¡Viva España! ¡Viva Paul!
