Emergency spaghetti

Spaghetti is an inexpensive kitchen staple that is fast and easy to make. In our house it’s an emergency meal that we love to cook in various ways. We frequently serve spaghetti with tomato sauce (containing oregano and basil), olive oil, meat, or vegetables. Other spaghetti preparations may include Bolognese sauce, alfredo and carbonara. And eating spaghetti is always unpredictable and fun.

Raising up our voice

Protest. A word that every time we read more frequently in newspapers or TV news. Egypt, Turkey, Brazil, and also Spain are examples of how the protests are increasingly. And this is the word we can illustrate this week for IF.

Having fun in the bathroom

This week’s Illustration Friday topic is “Children”. And children are fun. Here you have an illustration with my nephew looking like Darth Vader with a stool on his head. It was an unexpected situation that we experienced a few months ago so I had to make this illustration by memory.

Orxata illustration recipe: That’s gold, darling!

When I started writing down recipes always seemed easier and faster to do it with illustrations and some additional notes on the side. They are usually simple recipes that I want to keep and save in a folder. Here’s one of the first recipes I made: orxata’s recipe. A delicious traditional drink from Valencia that is usually taken in summer everywhere here in Catalonia and is also very easy to make at home.

Would you want to know your future?

Needless to say, these are difficult times for many of us. And to know when ends a losing streak or what our future will be can be a big temptation. Therefore, in our country there are many television channels where 24 hours a day psychic readers supposedly can guess our future.

One way to say farewell

Here is the illustration I’ve done this week with the topic farewell in IF. Normally, it is a word with a sad meaning, we say goodbye to someone with whom we shared a time of our life. It is also a situation that costs us to live and we don’t really know what to say or when to say it. So the result is a somewhat tense conversation with awkward silences and we always try to last the shortest time possible.

But there are big goodbyes, at least on film, and for me one of them is the farewell scene at the airport in the movie Casablanca.
