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.

nummy napa

Call me crazy, but Napa cabbage has a buttery texture.  Dreamy.  Try the following salad with grilled bone-in pork chops.  You won’t be sorry.

  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 2 T. rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp. sesame seeds
  • 1 T. honey
  • thinly sliced Napa cabbage
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
