EcoCenajo

First of all I have to say that MurciaDailyPhoto has no receive any gratification for mentioning any hotel or hostel nor restaurant, and so on that appears on any article posted here.

As its website mentioned: "EcoCenajo is an innovation project in ecotourism, located next to the Cenajo reservoir (Moratalla). In the middle of an incomparable natural environment, EcoCenajo guarantees an integral and different experience of the natural environment through the sum of comfort, gastronomy and adventure sports."

I passed a few days (last summer) for relaxing in that surroundings. The hotel has also swimming pool.

Door of the Fortune-Teller

The origin of this door (in the MUBAM, Murcia) is linked to the fortune-teller Mari Chaves, a Judaizing witch of Portuguese origin, sentenced to the stake with her brother by the Inquisition tribunal in 1720.
At the door you can see elements ranging from Eastern, Persian, Greco-Roman and Judeo-Christian antiquity, the fantasy of the medieval bestiaries and the world of the oneiric, atavistic and esoteric of different traditions, all passed through the sieve of the Renaissance.
On the Door, there are different motifs from the Late Middle Ages, from the vegetal decorativism that invades all the figures to the different repertories derived from the bestiary, as well as from different images of exotic and bizarre roots.

Murcian Migas. Gachasmigas Murcianas.

As many places in Spain, also at Region of Murcia, it is typical to cook "migas" on cloudy and rainy days.
Murcian migas (or gachasmigas) recipe:

Ingredients for 4 people:
Water - 300 grams
Flour - 300 grams
Olive oil - 100 grams
Salt to taste
Fresh sausage - 100 grams
Longaniza (Fresh red sausage) - 100 grams
Costillejas (a part of pork chops) - 350 grams
Bacon - 125 grams
Head of garlic - 1 unit
Ñoras (see below) - 4 units

Preparation of the recipe
First, you separate the cloves of garlic and crush them, for this you can put on the blade of a large knife and hit it with the fist. You can also use the bottom of a glass.
Next, you cut into pieces the sausage and the red sausage.
Heat olive oil in a pan and add the cloves of garlic and peppers. Cook both ingredients, over medium heat, for a few minutes.
Next, remove them from the pan and reserve.
Add the different types of meat and a pinch of salt to the same pan. We cook until all the meat is golden. At that time, removed it from the pan and reserved it.
In the same pan, put to heat water and olive oil. Remove so that both ingredients mix a little.
When the water starts to boil, distribute the flour on the surface. Let the water boil again through the flour, at that time, mix with the help of a spatula. If the dough is a bit dry, you can add more oil. Add a pinch of salt and cook over medium heat.
From this point, you must go breaking the dough with the help of a spatula, in this way the crumbs will be formed little by little. As the minutes pass, the crumbs are getting smaller and smaller. You must be careful not to over dry, it is best to cook over medium heat.
Once the crumbs are ready, check the salt and rectify it if necessary.
Next, you add all the ingredients that we have reserved, mix, and cook a couple of minutes to catch a bit of heat.
Serve immediately.

Annotations and Tips
In Murcia the name of longaniza is a kind of elongated thin sausage that is usually eaten fresh or cured, this time we will use it as fresh as possible. In the same way, the sausage used is usually fine and fresh.

With the name of "ñora" is designated a type of small and round pepper that is usually used dry.

Although gachasmigas can be made with any type of flour, the best results are obtained with durum wheat flour.

The ingredients used to prepare gachasmigas can be very varied. It could be accompanied with anchovies or fried sardines, cooked chard, tender garlic and other ingredients depending on their seasonality.
