Happy Birthday Part 2

 
Yes, there is more.  I am fortunate to have some very wonderful friends, and they invited us to join them for dinner last night.  Kevin worked his kitchen magic again and turned out a Spanish tortilla.  Now this is a simple dish with few ingredients but it's authenticity will simply transport you.  It was accompanied in the Spanish tradition with fresh, unadorned bread, and we had a Spanish-style Tempranillo along side to round out the experience.
  

The short story behind all the Spanish dishes is that Kevin's parents were missionaries, and they lived for a while in Spain.  They brought back with them flavor of Spain in these recipes.  Unfortunately I missed most of the preparation of this dish because I was in the other room catching up with Ashley.  Kevin's mom, Pauline, joined us for dinner, too.  It was a delightful evening as always, and topped off with Kevin's chocolate cake with praline icing.  Absolutely delicious and better than many restaurant desserts.
