    Default random question...

    Your DH is on a Buck's weekend. Strippers. Booze. Golf. Friday-Sunday night.
    You are home alone with the kids.


    What would you do for your own enjoyment ??

    Stay up late watching all sorts of trash on foxtel. Buy a bottle of REALLY expensive champagne on his amex. Sneak cigarettes once DD is asleep. Sleep on the couch. Go out for breakfast on his amex. Go shopping on his amex. Go for lunch on his amex. Get a facial on his ... ok you get the picture!

    Df and ds1 are away tonight so it's just ds2 and I.

    We had dinner followed by popcorn, hot chocolate and a movie. He's in bed now so I'm on here (obviously) and will just munch my way through some chocolate and watch whatever *I* want to watch on TV.

    Pretty much just chill and go at my own pace.

    Girly movies or start watching a new TV series, block of chocolate, bottle of wine. Oh and takeaway! Possibly get the kids babysat and head out for a night out if possible? And a looooong bubble bath!

    Here is the recipe - it looks really long but is not hard to make.

    Ingredients:

    • 6-7 medium potatoes, peeled
    • 1 whole yellow onion
    • 5-6 large eggs
    • 2-3 cups of olive oil for pan frying
    • Salt to taste
    Preparation:

    This tortilla espanola or tortilla de patata makes 8-10 servings as an appetizer, or 6 servings as a main course.
    Note: If you've never prepared a Spanish omelet and prefer a step-by-step style recipe with photos:Cut the peeled potatoes in half lengthwise. Then, with the flat side on the cutting surface, slice the potato in pieces approximately 1/8" thick. If you slice them a bit thick, don’t worry – it will simply take a bit longer for them to cook.
    Peel and chop the onion into 1/4" pieces. Put potatoes and onions into a bowl and mix them together. Salt the mixture.
    In a large, heavy, non-stick frying pan, heat the olive oil on medium high heat. Carefully place the potato and onion mixture into the frying pan, spreading them evenly over the surface. The oil should almost cover the potatoes. You may need to turn down the heat slightly, so the potatoes do not burn.
    Leave in pan until the potatoes are cooked. If you can poke a piece of potato with a spatula and it easily breaks in two, your potatoes are done. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon or spatula and allow oil to drain.
    Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl and beat by hand with a whisk or fork. Pour in the potato onion mixture. Mix together with a large spoon.
    Pour 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil into a small, non-stick frying pan (aprox. 9-10”) and heat on medium heat. Be careful not to get the pan too hot because the oil will burn - or the tortilla will! When hot, stir the potato onion mixture once more and “pour” into the pan and spread out evenly. Allow the egg to cook around the edges. Then you can carefully lift up one side of the omelet to check if the egg has slightly “browned.” The inside of the mixture should not be completely cooked and the egg will still be runny.
    When the mixture has browned on the bottom, you are ready to turn it over to cook the other side. Take the frying pan to a sink. Place a large dinner plate (12”) upside down over the frying pan. With one hand on the frying pan handle and the other on top of the plate to hold it steady, quickly turn the frying pan over and the omelet will “fall” onto the plate. Place the frying pan back on the range and put just enough oil to cover the bottom and sides of the pan. Let the pan warm for 30 seconds or so. Now slide the omelet into the frying pan. Use the spatula to shape the sides of the omelet. Let the omelet cook for 3-4 minutes. Turn the heat off and let the tortilla sit in the pan for 2 minutes.
    Slide the omelet onto a plate to serve. If eating as a main course, cut the omelet into 6-8 pieces like a pie. Serve sliced French bread on the side.
    If you are serving as an appetizer, slice a baguette into pieces about 1/2 inch think. Cut thetortilla into 1.5” squares and place a piece on top of each slice of bread.

    It is simply delicious served with sofrito, fried tomato sauce that is made all over Spain. Tomatoes, onions, garlic, green peppers and olive oil sautéed in a frying pan.
    BTW, make sure you season the potato well.

    Get drunk and watch The Notebook... and cry like you've never cried before. (after the kids are in bed, of course!).

    Or... get drunk and youtube karaoke videos. Just make sure the kid's bedrooms are shut. I did this once and DD awoke... came out rubbing her eyes saying, "I think there's a cat screaming outside..." "Um... yeah... I'll go shoo that cat away..." *shifty eyes*
