My house smells awesome!

I just pulled out of the oven an egg custard tart for dessert later in honor of the British Grand Prix. I'm also going to make Bangers and Mash for dinner. Yum!

European Grand Prix

I absolutely loved cooking for the European Grand Prix!  Since the race took place in Valencia, Spain, I decided to make a couple of Spanish tapas.  I went with a Spanish Garlic Shrimp and Stuffed Mushrooms.  I also made Arroz con Leche for dessert (rice pudding).  The shrimp was awesome and a bit spicy.  We soaked up the yummy sauce with crusty french bread.  The stuffed mushrooms were decent, but I think they lacked garlic.  The arroz con leche tasted so much like the one my grandmother used to make.  It's different from the kind you usually get here in the states, it's more thick, but delicious too.  This was one of my favorite meals so far.  A real treat!
