rainbow tortilla

After a drizzly-yet-muggy evening on the training paddock, I want something quick, easy and which uses up whatever is malingering in the fridge - step forward Rainbow Tortilla!

Inexplicably there's two peppers in the salad crisper, plus I manage to create an almost entire Franken-avocado from the collection going soft in the draw. All I need to buy is salad and some more eggs on the way home and I've got the perfect accompaniment to Sharpe's Eagle:

Outside of dinner, two culinary things serve to annoy me today. The Delicious website is the first point of vexation with it's piss-poor search tool. I just wanted to check if I needed to get anything else on the way home, but could I find "rainbow tortilla"? Could I bobbins, and it was only in the June issue, so not that long ago.

Secondly, I got distracted by booze in Sainsbury's but couldn't face warm beer or fizzy lager so I opted for some Pear Cider from Bulmers. One - why isn't it called Perry, because that what it is, and Two, it was disgusting! A really chemically taste which no amount of French dead could remove from my mouth. This is why I don't drink big brand beverages...

  1. I am totally with you on the Delicious search engine. Drives me mad that they don't have everything on there....grrrrrr....

    Just have a bloody Magners like the rest of us and be done with it. Perry indeed...tsk

  2. Hmmm, I actually combatted it last night by drinking Raspberry, Lime and Pear cider (really) from Jersey. It was v nice

    Incidentally, I imagine RED magazine do good recipes. Certainly better than Razzle's recipe section, which I've been reading since Ana left...

  3. I reeeeeeeally really dread to think what their recipe section consists of....

  4. I'll cook it all next weekend in Tenby - cock o cock, creamy breasts and some sort of melon starter
