Today is a great day for cooking. It is a long weekend with rain drizzling continually. Yesterday was hectic with three of us pruning trees and bushes then dragging the branches to one big pile where they can rot down in the fullness of time.
Our wood fire is blazing early as it is Tiger's bath day and I worry about him drying at 16C - Alex and I tried a hair dryer once but the dear kitten was terrified, scrambling to escape our insistent clutching. So hubby dutifully lit the fire at 10am in preparation for bath day.
Fried Potato with Chorizo and Garlic
500g peeled potatoes
2 chorizo sausages
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup Olive oil
Chop potatoes in half lengthwise and then slice across into 4mm slices.
Heat a large non stick frying pan over low - medium heat and add olive oil with potatoes. Fry for 5 minutes whilst slicing chorizo into 3mm rounds. Turn over potato and fry for a few more minutes before adding chorizo and chopped garlic. Don't continually stir or your potatoes will turn mushy. Occasionally turn over or toss the pan to redistribute the potato and chorizo slices. Total cooking time is 12 - 15 minutes.
