Its been a while since I've posted. My computer's hard drive died recently. I am happy to report though, that thanks to a very awsome father my machine is back with the living. Thank you daddy! I had bronchitis last week, to pile on the misfortune. Being terribly ill seems even more wretched when you run out of DVDs and your computer is broken, leaving you with network television and no voyeuristic internet-stalking outlets for the waves of depression that come on with upper-respitory illness. All things combined this was a bad couple of weeks for food. I mostly ate cheese sandwiches, tuna, milk and orange juice. Last night I made tortilla hispanola, also known as the worlds greatest sandwich filling for drunkenness. Frittate-like in construction, but spanish, obviously, the tortilla is filled with potato and onion, and when you slap it on a baguette you're one bite away from heaven. A cast iron pan is really the best here. You need something with steep sides and the ability to go in the oven. Tortilla Hispanola 4 med. onions, sliced 4 large potatos, sliced 6 eggs, beaten & seasoned with salt n pepa to taste 1 clove garlic, chopped Preheat oven to 350. Saute potatos in olive oil til browned. Remove from pan. Saute onions until soft and brown. Add garlic and potatos and cook, stirring, 2 minutes or so. Pour egg mixture over potato/onion and shake pan to distribute evenly. Turn heat to low-ish. After 5 minutes move pan to oven. Cook 10 minutes more, or until egg is set. Let cool and cut into slices.
