Taking over traffic duties on the Homestretch on CBC all this week from 2-6pm. Fortunately there were leftovers from the morning show today – tailgate tapas was the topic of discussion – and so I made (among other things) a Spanish tortilla, which is essentially a frittata – a baked omelet of sorts that’s easy to make in advance and serve up cold in two-bite squares. (This was supposed to be made with Spanish chorizo, but I didn’t clarify on the shopping list, so it’s just plain old Italian chorizo, squeezed out of its casing and cooked along with the onion and peppers. Really, you could put anything in this, but potato and sausage are pretty classic.)
Any kind of baked frittata makes a fine sandwich, a handsome crouton, and an easy breakfast/lunch/dinner to pull out of the fridge whenever you need it.
I like to think this is what they ate in my absence – they could have just as easily had popcorn.
