Cocido Madrileño and Another Sensational Osos Practice
Wednesday, 26 October, 2016:
It was sunny today for the first time in about a week so I decided to travel light on my walk into Arganda del Rey's old town.
I've into town so often that
I must have finished at least
a stage of the Camino
Armanda del Rey was still
sleeping as I entered
The end of a good lunch at
Maricarmen, the owner and head cook at La Tertulia, told me that I had to eat her special of the day, Cocido Madrileño.
What is Cocido Madrileño you ask? Well let me tell you.
Cocido Madrileño is a traditional Winter dish that is now eaten at all times of the year. It starts with a bowl of delicious clad/soup and half a baguette of warm bread. Then comes a helping plate piled high with garbanzo beans, carrots, potatoes, cabbage, morcillo, chorizo, pork and chicken.
Add a glass of vino tinto and a flan and you know instantly that you have had a hearty, food coma inducing meal.
It was good!

Armanda del Rey's best panaderia
Truth be told, I bought a lot of
good looking desserts to take
home to Jesús, Bere and the girls
Once home, I passed out in the promised food coma.
I slept well.
