What do you do with a house full of pilgrims and beautiful autumn days and lots and lots of stories to share?
You go hunting for wild chestnuts and grapes and walk along the river in a dappled light and read in the sunshine for hours. And then you cook a lot of food because pilgrims need to feel their bellies full. They marvel at things like vegetables and soy sauce and oatmeal cooked in milk. They spill their untold memories of walking for days and days and their sacred moments and their upcoming steps.
Eating on the camino can feel like an endless stream of bread, jamon, cheese and fries. Here we will savor curry and hot sauce and stir fry and crunchy salads. I’m sticking with stand by recipes, easy to prepare in a small kitchen, with loads of veggies and heavy on the spices. Of course, I made a pin board, too.
Anything else to add to the list?
Today one of YOU lovely readers showed up at the door of the Little Fox House. This friend of a friend had written to me about a year ago to ask about walking the camino. I’m overjoyed she was able to make the journey and I’m especially thrilled at the chance to welcome her here at the retreat house in Spain. Ain’t it grand?
