We’ll begin with a little word of advise from the newly wised up. Do not, and I repeat NOT be the only seller at a party for realtors smack in the middle (or end, depending on whose opinion you’re getting) of a recession which includes free wine, free food, free massages, free pedicures, free manicures, and free waxings. Hint… they’re coming for the free stuff. Your product may be fabulous. They may moon and ooh and ah over it. They may add their names to your mailing list and take your cards. But they’re there for one reason and one reason ONLY – the free stuff.
Having said that, let us move on to more appetizing things, like frittatas and fruit salads on a hot summer’s evening. On Tuesday and Wednesday, I had a wonderful visit with my mom and during that time we developed a yen for a frittata, ran out to the store, and gathered supplies. This is what we gathered:
about 7* large eggs, which were whisked and mixed with
I will apologize now for not being a specific recipe person. I’m strictly an eyeballer.
So mom and I mixed the eggs with…
a little milk
and a few shakes of hot sauce
sliced mushrooms, about 6
we sliced about 1 large green pepper
then sliced about three pieces of ham
and finely chopped a red onion
We sauteed the mushrooms until nice and brown, then salted and peppered
Then we added the onion, followed by the pepper (we used green and red).
We added the ham.
Once the ham was heated through, we poured the egg mixture over the vegetables and topped with a generous amount of shredded cheese.
We put the oven-friendly skillet into a 400 degree oven until the eggs began to brown and the cheese became nice and bubbly.
For the fruit salad, we combined honeydew, cantaloupe, orange, and peaches.
YUMMMMM. The perfect, inexpensive, vegetarian summer meal.
We added 7 eggs for a standard sized skillet and agreed that we should have used 10 instead.
That’s what you get for eye-balling.
