I had such an AMAZING tapas night with my cousin yesterday. Because of our night, I’m able to present you a much healthier recipe (compare to my last one) on this sunny Saturday that we invented after a day at the farmer’s market. We walked around for hours looking at all the gorgeous flowers, organic fruit stands and biologic butcher shops at the Marché Jean-Talon that I even got a mini sunburn on my shoulders… ouch! ..but it was worth it.
After buying all the ingredients needed for the night, we went back to her place and had fun creating a few new recipes that I will be sharing in this blog in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned for all that deliciousness 😉 hehe
Since we are young, my cousin and I have always been cooking together. I remember this one year, when my mom was still living in Paris and I lived one year at my grand parents house in the middle of the woods, she was often coming back home with me after school to cook and invent recipes. I guess I can say that we have an incredible “kitchen chemistry” and we are both passionate with cooking because we always end up creating delicious meals and it’s definitely our way to socialize and have fun when we are together.
She’s been living in Montreal for a few years now but we are both extremely busy and I unfortunately don’t see her as often I would want to. Before yesterday, our last “cook off” was a YEAR ago!!! Pretty bad right? I know we’re awful….
And it’s not even because we don’t like to spend time together (pretty much the opposite) but like I’ve said, I’m super busy with my business and she’s a full time student doing her master degree while working many hours a week. I wish our schedule was more flexible so we could do this more often but at least the internet is there to keep in touch. Last night we made the promise to see each other more often.. let’s hope we’re able to make it this time! We always have so much fun and look at the delicious goodies we are preparing!! Please keep your fingers crossed for me so we see each other more often. 😛
