I don’t need to tell you about the tired that accompanies the first day back to work after an extended vacation. You know. Today was one of those days – after 10 days off and only 3.5 days at the new job, the first day back was especially rough. I tried to take that into consideration while planning meals for this week, leading off with our second attempt at this recipe from Jamie’s Dinners.
Our notes from the last go-round indicated that we’d had some trouble with the chorizo, so I sliced it thin and fried it up in a bit of olive oil while Shane whisked the eggs together. I tossed in some sliced grape tomatoes and the last of a bag of spinach, then swirled in the eggs. Jamie bills this as a “Five Minute Wonder”, and while the prep and cooking took a bit more than 5 minutes, in under 15 minutes from start to finish we were sitting down with a generous omelet, warmed bread, and the last of Sunday night’s wine. What initially looked like too much food turned out to be just right, and my foul work mood had dissolved by the end of the meal.
