Happy Summers…

Memorial day just got over.. 3 wonderful days of absolutely doing nothing feels great.. Even no cooking, sometimes, even though I love to cook, there are days when you just want to .. The last 3 days have been fantastic.. We went to parks, on walks, caught 3 lovely movies, oh and to mention, tried out great food  and I just do did not want these 3 days to end… This morning when the alarm rang, I was like grrrr… stop that and let me sleep…

Lush Greens

The summers are just beautiful, long sunny days, pretty flowers in bloom.. The East-Coast is just so wonderful that way.. Unlike the UK, where there is the interim rain, and by interim I mean pretty much every second day in the Summers, East Coast US is much different.. cool, breezy and they have a climate, unlike the UK oh well they just have weathers… The lovely green system around the EC makes it all the more wonderful and there is nothing better that to enjoy the play of various green colours, blending in harmony..

Blending Greens

Sometimes we would drive for hours, only to stop by and admire the scenery or just plonk ourselves in a park, sit for hours.. Most of the times it is unplanned… Like it was yesterday and after a wonderful 3 days, I wanted the closing meal of the weekend somewhat relaxing, and that it would remind me of those beautiful long summer days…

The Husband on the wheels

So We got home and it was time for Frittatas…

A classic summer picnic dish, but could also double up as a great dinner

Spinach Mushroom and Ham Frittata

Spinach Ham and Mushroom Frittata..

You would need/:

  • eggs-6 large
  • Onions-1 cup chopped
  • Garlic cloves-2 copped
  • Mushroom- roughly chopped- 1 cup
  • Ham-  sliced thinly-  2 cups
  • Spinach- I medium size bag ( 300 gms)
  • Olive oil
  • Butter- 1 stick
  • salt
  • Pepper
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Parmesan cheese – (if you do not have that then just plain simple cheddar)
crispy soft and Golden!!

How:

Take a skillet, A deep skillet would help. Heat half a stick of butter, with 1 table spoon of olive oil, saute the onions and the garlic till they turn golden. Add the ham, cook it on high heat for a minute or 2 till it starts to crisp up.. Then add the mushroom and continue to saute. At this point, add a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar and the salt… Let the flavours soak in and then add the spinach.. Just wait long enough for the leaves to wilt.. If you leave it for too long,  it tends to ge watery.. Meanwhile. Crack 6 eggs, season it and gently beat with 2 table spoon of milk. Now use the other half of the stick of butter add it to the skillet with the frittata filling and then pour the eggs.  Cook it over low heat and spread the cheese..  Pre-Heat the oven to about 400 degree F and once the eggs start to firm up, stick it in to the oven for about 10-15 min, when it slowly turns golden.  There you are, serve it with a mix of salad leaves..  Though I had mine just like that…

Perfect way to end the Memorial day weekend…

Sliced!!
