Easy for You, Deefeecult for Me

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.
