I am sure this snack finds many variations throughout the world but this one comes from New Castile and La Mancha.


sugared toasts

A steaming cup of cocoa and this snack is sure to bring a smile to little faces. Not to mention using up some of those left over slices of bread. To add a special flavor for adults substitute wine for the milk. French bread gives the best persentation.

Serves 3 - 4

Pinchitos Morunos

spicy moorish kebabs

Andalusia offers this dish. Considered to be another tapas, these kabobs have become a favorite in this house. Full of flavor they are wonderful with rice and make a great dinner. Their heritage is from the Arabs of Africa and now served all over spain.

Spread the pinchitos out well on a barbecue or on foil under the broiler. Cook them under high heat for about 3 minutes on each side. We prefer to use the propane barbecue year round so this dish can be done anytime.

These wonderful reipes come from a favorite book "Spanish Cooking" by Pepita Aris.
