Chorizo, Red Pepper, and Potato Galette with Arugula

Yesterday, I sat with a stack of magazines as my car's oil was changed.  Sweating as I ripping out pages of interesting recipes and planning a small plates feast. We need refreshing food in the blazing hot humid desert.  Vegetables cool and crisp, small plates the perfect solution to the aggravating weather.  

Fabulous flavor and so quick to throw together and I might add, most impressive looking.  Well mine not so impressive, but after 2 hours at the auto shop, I had my car aligned as well, every wanted food so I just smacked it together.  I micro'd the potatoes and roasted the pepper over my gas flame.
