Spain- On the Road Again

I left house today to return books and videos to library after watching the Red Sox win, all but clinching a playoff spot. I also wanted to avoid the updates crawling across the bottom of the television screen indicating that the Patriots were being drubbed by the heretofore hapless Dolphins. To add ineptitude to insult, I find myself mired in last place in my inaugural fantasy football season and it doesn't look like I will be climbing out of the cellar this week or in the near future.

Spain would be a good place to escape to. The clip above is from a show on PBS I lucked into finding. It was the first episode of a new series with Mario Batali, Mark Bittman, Gweneth Paltrow. and Claudia Bassols eating there way around Spain. (Guest appearances by Don Quixote and Sancho Panza.) I enjoyed it and look forward to the rest of the series. He is promoting a companion cookbook. Batali, not Quixote.

Speaking of Spain, I am also hooked on the cooking/travelogue series by Chef José Andrés, Made in Spain. I really want the soundtrack! I should ask the public library to order them.

I didn't know you did fantasy football stuff. I've never quite understood how all that stuff works, but a lot of kids seem to dig it.

I got talked it into it by a friend to balance out there league. Apparently they were short of patsies. It makes the games I normally wouldn't care about more interesting without having to wager actual cash on them.

interesting clip in that it proves Gwyneth Paltrow actually eats while Michael Stipe obviously doesn't.

you're welcome to raid my kitchen & concoct similar delicacies anytime! :)
