A Spanish dinner for St Teresa of Avila

St Teresa of Avila, Doctor of the Church.

 The Holy Father spoke of St Teresa " as a true teacher of Christian life for the faithful of every time. In our society, which all too often lacks spiritual values, St Teresa teaches us to be unflagging witnesses of God, of his presence and of his action. She teaches us truly to feel this thirst for God that exists in the depths of our hearts, this desire to see God, to seek God, to be in conversation with him and to be his friends."

 In honour of St Teresa, we planned a dinner from Spain. Tonight we made Vegetarian Paella and Nigella Lawson's Spanish Omelette.

 I have to admit to being a Nigella- wannabe. I love her recipes; reading her cookbooks is an escape....she doesn't just give a recipe but draws a cosy picture.

 But if you, like me, are Not-Quite-Nigella, then perhaps try this Five Minute Spanish (Potato) Omelette ..from another NQN, with a very popular foodie blog....

 And if you like meat, try some other paella recipes . We have made Easy Paella and also Easy Chicken Paella in previous years, in honour of this saint.

 Most of all, enjoy your cooking and eating together for, in St Teresa's words.."From silly devotions and from sour-faced saints, good Lord, deliver us"
