Jerry cooked another maravilloso Spanish dinner Monday night. It was his latest success from the pages of “The New Spanish Table” (page 359), called Canelons D’Espinacs — Cannelloni with Spinach, Raisins, and Pine Nuts.
There were a multitude of steps and a very considerable mess was made to produce this meal. So, I joined Jerry in the kitchen to wash up and keep things manageable as he worked.

THERE’S A LITTLE PROBLEM WITH TEMPERATURE REGULATION IN OUR OVEN.
While I washed, I told Jerry how much I’ve been enjoying our meals at home and I that I don’t mind clean-up at all now that we’re not working. He agreed, saying he finds the cooking very relaxing now. I told him I couldn’t believe all the work involved in preparing this particular meal.
Jerry commented, “This one is actually very easy. Just a lot of organizing.”
To which I responded in the voice of Johnny, the Señor Wences character, “Easy for you, deefeecult for me.”
I used to love watching Señor Wences and his ‘friends’ when they made their regular appearances on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” It seems especially appropriate now that we’re living in Spain.
