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!

Spinach and Cheese Frittata!!

OK, it was gonna be this (and sorry I forgot the name of this cheese. I do know it’s a hard cheese from Italy, and it’s very hard to source), but I had fresh tomatoes, and decided to throw in hot peppers to add some zip … but doesn’t Spinach and Cheese Frittata just SOUND better, lol? A few pics, enjoy!

1.eggs scrambling 2.loaded with lotsa good stuff 3.carefully slid and folded from pan to plate so top meets bottom

My best attempt avoiding the “O” word in my title, lol. Can’t help myself, on another omelette roll of late … damp, wet weather puts me in the mood for stick to my ribs food. This always hits the gut-filling spot … prolly be doubling (or tripling) down with that ragin’ bitch Sandy unleashing her fury … already felt that cold wind firsthand *shivers*. Now? I’m hunkered down!! A few pic y’all. 😉
