mushroom frittata

Credit for the following delish dish goes to chef hubbie…

  • large non-stick saucepan:  saute onions in 2 T. olive oil, add sliced mushrooms & saute for a few minutes
  • add thyme, salt & pepper, & half-n-half (approx. 1/3 to 1/2 cup)
  • beat 5 eggs (or so) in bowl, temper eggs by slowly adding & stirring in saucepan mixture
  • add back into saucepan & cook on stove top until set
  • put under broiler to brown top

Enjoy with a piece of toast & fruit for breakfast, or with a salad for lunch or dinner.

muffin malfunction

Tried a new recipe this morning – Carrot Raisin Bran Muffins from a November 2008 Family Circle

Look pretty good, don’t they?  And this was after my camera strap got caught & the muffins scattered all over the place.

Thinking the 3/4 teaspoon of wheat flour was suspect, I changed it to 3/4 cup.  Although they were smelling a wee bit wheaty (cow feed?), confidence held.

Upon sampling the first dense bite, a “hmmmm” crept into my mind…  Reviewing the process, it occurred to me that the baker left out the oil!  Plus, the baker added WAY too much flour.  whoops.  The accidental metamucil muffin.  Better stick close to home today.

Thank goodness for honey & butter.
