Oh, it’s time to get back to my kitchen! The cook off is over, my major project has been passed on momentarily and I can cook and create and catch up!
Oh Lord, is it time to catch up. I almost forget where everything is in my kitchen lately, we’ve been so on the go and busy. The one thing I am so glad to get back to is healthy breakfasts in the morning, now that I have a little more time on my hands.
Frittata’s are the bomb. The healthy bomb. The awesome bomb. The best part of these tasty beauties is that you can whip it up, put it in the oven and THEN go get the kids up. It only takes about 15-20 minutes to cook (depending on the amount of eggs you put in it) and by that time we are all downstairs again, ready to eat together before the kids head off to school.
I also have a mushroom addiction, is that wrong? I seriously love those little fungi’s in everything. The little trick I have discovered for using them in egg dishes is that you nuke the little suckers first, to get out all the moisture before you put them in your eggs.
When you remove the moisture of the mushrooms before you bake them, this is how they turn out.
Spring break is coming up for a lot of us here in Edmonton and that means the kids are home. I love spending time making amazing breakfasts when the kids are on break because my time is so limited during the week. I can manage a fritatta but I am so looking forward to trying out some breakfast casseroles, new waffles and pancakes…so many things I want to make!
I’ve perused the Life Made Delicious and have found a few things that might inspire you on Spring Break!
Ham & Egg Baskets : These look delicious AND easy. Win-win!
Impossibly Easy Sausage Breakfast Pie: You had me at easy and sausage. And pie.
Banana Nut Bread: Don’t overlook a delicious banana bread paired with some scambled eggs or fruit as a delicious breakfast!
What are you getting up to on Spring Break?
We were crazy and thought we might go away.
We are ridiculous travellers. We were gone two months this winter in total yet I wanted to go again. I realized however I was insane and that we are staying home that week and going to relax in our house, have playdates with the kids friends and just generally veg out.
I still have twitchy travel bugs biting at me but man, my house is a disaster, I need to do some major spring cleaning and it’s not like I can’t go to Jasper for a couple days if I NEED to get away, right? Right.
Enjoy the fritatta and enjoy this amazing weather we are having!
