Getting creative in the pantry

November 17th, 2006 at 03:42 am

I'm trying to delay a "real" grocery trip and work with what I have in the pantry. When I made this goal, I should have taken a better look at what was available, because it's proven to be very challenging!

Last night I attempted to make Spanish Style Tortilla. I enjoyed this dish for the first time in a cafe in Madrid. All you really need are eggs and potatoes, both of which I had available. Having never made this before, I looked online and decided to go with this recipe.

Unfortunately, when it came time to flip the tortilla I spilled it all over the pan. I ended up scrambling the eggs and throwing in some grape tomatoes and parsley for color. Maybe I'll just have to wait to return to Madrid for another authentic tortilla!

The Spanish-style scrambled eggs :-)

    in argentina one of the most popular dishes is french fries topped with scrambled eggs. sounds foul but it is actually quite tasty! perhaps this could be a variation on your spanish style tortilla...
