They tell us the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, and I'm setting the bar high, little girls out there. You might not even know who you are yet, but take my advice anyway and start enjoying how to cook, because not only is it good for you, it will keep the others happy too!
Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Toast a handful of walnut pieces in a small saucepan for a couple of minutes over high heat, and set them aside to cool.
Chop up some left over roasted chicken and toss it with a big spoonful of mayonnaise.
Next, peel and chop a nice ripe apple and mix it in with the chicken.
Add 2 big chopped green onions, and a handful of chopped cilantro, or basil, or parsley.
Toss in the toasted walnuts once they have cooled.
Salt a bit, and add a drizzle of olive oil if it looks dry (or more mayonnaise if you really want to).
Serve on big slices of sourdough bread, open-faced or closed.
Look how happy they get -- even abandoning the toys for a minute to finish dinner!
A zaguán is the entryway into a house. In typical Andalusian houses, the zaguán is a smallish, dark passage inside the doorway that leads in turn to the larger, light-filled interior patio. In Seville, in the heat of summer, zaguán doors are left open so that passersby can take refuge from the sun and heat for a moment before continuing on their way.
We live in the Sunset district of San Francisco, where the fog wins out over the sun most days, and the search for refuge from the heat is a distant memory. Even so, we would like to share our home with you and our stories of growing up in Seville and growing up in San Francisco.
