Tonight's Dinner - Spanish Tortilla

Tonight's dinner was a favorite of mine - Spanish Tortilla.  I usually use these moment to clean out the fridge, making one of my famous "Everything But The Kitchen Sink" tortillas, but not tonight.  Tonight was a simple one with potatoes (yes, we eat potatoes - deal), onions, and carrots.  Yum!  Everyone was quite happy...even the 4-year-old known as Mr. I Hate Eggs!

(I would have posted a picture here but my kids were starving and there were rumors of a revolt coming if I didn't serve Right That Instant!)

Cooking with a cast on my leg is a....well, let's just say challenge.  I've learned to take everything I need out of the fridge at one time so I don't have to keep making trips back and forth across the kitchen for supplies. At least with my kitchen, everything else is in arms reach of my main work area.

The first week I was on dinner duty, I kept to simple meals (burgers, stir-fries, microwave-steamed veggies, etc) but this last week, I've branched out.  I mean, you can only eat so many burger patties before you start going insane, right?  Yesterday, I made Potato Latkes (What can I say? I was craving potato!).  A few days before, we enjoyed Taco Chicken Salad (minus the chips)...and let's not forget last week's extravagance - French Onion Soup!  YUM!

Of course, by the time dinner is over, my foot is swollen and complaining but I think a good dinner is well worth the pain....  ;-)
