We've been trying to mix it up at bit for dinners. Isaac and I have an agreement (he cooks dinner if I do the dishes) I also do the grocery shopping and was really getting sick of the same ol' same ol'. This week I decided to actually find some recipes and try them out (completely new territory to us) This recipe was amazing hot and served cold for lunch the next day :)
Spanish omelet with potatoes and chorizo

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large oven proof skillet over medium heat. Add the large yellow onion and cook for 5 minuets. Add the chorizo, potatoes, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and cook, covered stirring occasionally until the potatoes are tender, 10 minutes, Stir in the parsley.
