I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Big Ass Egg White Frittata!!

… we don’t even buys egg anymore – egg whites only. Same for milk (dairy) – almond, or coconut (unsweetened) only. WOW, talk about a change in lifestyle. Honestly, can’t remember everything that ended up in my gorgeous frittata – lots of fresh veggies … I see organic vine ripened cherry tomatoes (sliced in half) on top – along with a heaping helping of fresh garden herbs. I know I used leftover meat, Tiff K’s sublimely spiced minced turkey concoction we had for our nacho dinner the day before. Cheese too … I think a few slices of Jarlsberg I had on hand … maybe a few remaining slices of turkey breast too. Nothin’ gets wasted here folks! As y’all know, I’m the king of usin’ ‘n utilizin’ leftovers, the king of changin’ it up … creating new meals! Completely, new and different dinners with what’s on hand! Anyways, enough talking – a few pics. Enjoy!

AND blackened skin, blackened skin y’all! Much to delicate to attempt flippin’ on the grill. Cook on indirect high heat, and when you see it start to ooze its juices, that’s your cue – have your fish spatula at the ready … nothing worse than overcooked fish!

… now, that’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout

we have wheelbarrow!

A buddy of mine and his mail-order wife (‘sok y’all, he doesn’t read any of this, and no I ain’t making that shit up … she is) are downsizing from a suburbia spread, to a closer to the city high in the sky condo. He was more than happy to get rid of it, I was happier than hell to take it off his hands – win win! Tens bucks sealed the deal. When I brought her home, used my 1/2″ combo wrench to tighten all the nuts, and my newly acquired fireman’s nozzle to remove any crap/gunk, and just to give an overall clean appearance. She’s as good as new – whaddya think, eh?!
