For my last birthday, I went to my parent’s to celebrate my day with my family. It’s been long long time since we spent my birthday together and I was kind of excited for that. It was a bit tired getting to my parent’s from Grenoble. I have to travel more than 1,500 km, meaning that I was travelling during half a day just to get there by almost all the means of transport… by bus, by plane, by metro, by train and, finally, by car. However, it worth it! The best thing for me of celebrating your birthday with your family is that you can answer the best question you can be ask that day: What do you want we cook for lunch today? Right away that question makes you feel the power to choose the food for everyone and that day I had my answer well prepared, without any hesitation. I want migas! Migas, more precisely, Extremaduran migas as there are several variations of them all around Spain, are a very popular meal from my region in Spain. In the past, it was cook to make the most of stale bread by people living and working in the country. It consists of stale bread cut in thin sticks, brown in a large pan with olive oil and garlic and pouring water bit a bit till getting spongy breadcrumbs. In my region, it is always served with several side dishes like Spanish tortilla, chorizo, pork (ribs, thick bacon, loin…), fried chicken wings, fried or grilled peppers, and also fish like sardines or cod. Yes, most of them are fried side dishes… That was the food in the old country!
