The other day we were having parsnip soup for dinner and I needed something else to make it more of a meal. My knee jerk reaction was to make a salad. But, it was a cold day and I wanted only warmth. My initial thought was to making a frittata. But after reading Darlene Foster’s post, http://darlenefoster.wordpress.com, my thoughts wandered over to sunny Spain and a Spanish tortilla. We had the good fortune years ago to spend some time in Barcelano. I remember with a great deal of pleasure stopping in the la barra for tapas. One of the tapas staples were little bites of Spanish Tortilla. Again, in an effort to make a recipe a “smidge healthier”, I removed the addition of the jamon and substituted sweet potatoes for the white.
Dom and I enjoyed our multicultural dinner and walked down memory lane reliving the Gaudi Museum, the walks down the La Rambla, and drinks and tapas at the Cantinas.
