A Pseudo Friday

by Joanne on April 9, 2009

Why is this a “pseudo” Friday? Because tomorrow we both have the day off in observance of Good Friday!

In honor of  this Thursday being a fake Friday, Ted and I enjoyed a “pseudo” happy hour but with a REAL glass of great French Chardonnay, Macon Villages:


For tonight’s dinner, we kept it simple and went with a frittata. Serves 4-6


  • 1 cup broccoli florets, steamed 2 min.
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup baby bellas, peeled and sliced thick
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp fresh dill
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup dry vermouth
  • 2 cups Egg Beaters
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 TBS Greek Yogurt
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 3 Cheese Italian (Parm., Asiago, Romano mix)
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced thin
  • 1 package Veggie Beef Skewers (removed from skewers)

Preheat oven to 400 F. Cook the broccoli and drain.  Saute the onion about 8 minutes on medium high, add the garlic and saute 1 minute. Add the broccoli, fresh dill, and mushrooms, salt and pepper for about 1 minute and pour in the vermouth.  The vermouth should be completely absorbed by the other ingredients in the pan.  Remove from heat.

Beat for 2 minutes the 2 whole eggs, the Egg Beaters, the yogurt and salt and pepper.  Pour into the saute pan with the onion-broccoli mix.  Top with sliced tomatoes. Top with cheese. Top with the pieces of Veggie Beef*. Put in the oven for 20 minutes.

*The Veggie Beef was an after thought. I was surprised that Ted agreed to put this on the Frittata but since it was a new find and we had never tried it, he was game.  This particular vegetarian protein is Chipotle BBQ sauce flavor.  End result:  We didn’t like it. The texture was hard and chewy. There was very little flavor.

Movie Review:



The “Yes Man” was funny.  We both  enjoyed quite a few laughs which is surprising since I’m not a fan of Jim Carey. 


That’s a wrap for this Thursday night.  If you have tomorrow off, let me know what you’re doing.  Take care.
