Someone elses recipe

by Joanne on February 16, 2009

Hope your Monday was a good one?  Mine was okay for Monday.  Monday’s get such a bad rap, don’t they?  It’s a day when all dentist appointments should be scheduled because that way, the appointment doesn’t ruin a better day of the week, like a Thursday.  Ever notice that people at work begin getting a little more cheerful around Wednesday afternoon, Thursday morning?  On Friday, everyone is wearing a smile.  We just LUV our weekends!

What to do for a Monday dinner?  I followed someone elses recipe for a Frittata. It didn’t work out for me because instead of using the 9 x 9 dish as suggested, I used my great big, high sided stove top pan that I would typically saute the ingredients then put directly into the oven.  It was too large of a diameter and consequently, the Frittata remained flat and overcooked.  The original recipe can be found at Danzante Wines and make sure you cook in that 9 x 9 dish so it will be thick and moist.

I boiled some green beans with a little salt, pepper and parsley.

I added some nice hot salsa because, as I said, the dish turned out a bit dry and needed some more flavor.



It’s still fairly early and I am going to take advantage of that and get some fun things accomplished.  So you all take care and keep smiling because it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.
