Fabulous Frittata

Doesn't she look like she's thinking "oh no, mommy is going to cook again?" I love the idea of big, family, Sunday morning breakfasts so I got motivated and decided to make a frittata.

I thinly sliced a potato and cut up a bunch of asparagus. I added water to the potatoes, brought it to a boil and let it boil for around 5 minutes at which time I added the asparagus and let that cook for another 2ish minutes.

I drained it and added it to a bowl filled with four eggs, four egg whites, 3 tbl of mozzarella cheese, a quarter teaspoon of baking powder and a touch of salt. Then I chopped an onion and let that cook for a few minutes to soften them up.

One the onions were soft I added the egg mixture, covered it and let it cook until it was almost totally set.

While it was cooking, SB showed up and helped me make my morning cup of coffee. He's such a good helper.

Next we turned on the Ipod and danced.

Once the eggs were almost set I added 1 tbl of mozzarella cheese to the top and then put the skillet in a 500 degree oven for 5 minutes, until the eggs were totally set and the cheese had melted.

SB wanted pancakes so I made these.

The husband played with the kids while I finished up making breakfast for the clan.

One fourth of the frittata is a serving and it was quite filling, and pretty tasty as well. I think next time perhaps I would add a little mustard powder or maybe tomatoes.

Five minutes later -

For lunch I stuffed a pita with turkey breast, broccoli slaw and added a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese and Gulden's spicy brown mustard. Gulden's spicy brown is my absolute most favorite mustard. If you haven't tried it stop reading right now and rush to the store and get some. Seriously. While at the store, do not get suckered into buying clementines (like I did) because it really isn't the season for them so they are far too expensive and not as good as they are in the winter.

Mid-afternoon I was hungry so I toasted a multi-grain sandwich thin and topped it with cottage cheese mixed with fresh basil and then I topped with sliced tomato. Just about anything can be made better with tomato.

No pics of dinner because I gave in to temptation and went out for bbq chicken pizza. In my own defense, I stuck to two pieces. However, let us never speak of the raspberry sundae or the mozzarella sticks that went along with it..............
