Fog ~ Frozen ~ Veggie Frittata ~ Jennifer Murphy ~ Cocktail Hour/Dinner ~ Sunset w/ Bruiser & Dude 


Good 31ยบ semi foggy morning.

 And the geese were on the barn roof making a bunch of honking noise!


 

Yesterday morning was so frozen and then when the sun came out about 10am the ice started evaporating off the pasture...





Here is a good and easy Veggie Frittata
 
8 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli, fresh or frozen and thawed
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup (1-ounce) grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
 
  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except butter; mix well.
     
  2. In a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Pour egg mixture into skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until mixture is solid, about 25 minutes.
     
  3. Turn the frittata out of the skillet and cut into wedges. Serve immediately.

Cocktail hour was a Dirty Sue martini... shaken and up in my 1911 Maxwell glass....

 
 
Dinner was Schwans Orange Chicken with rice. Since it was Chopsticks Day I ate it with chopsticks! Then a piece of Schwans Key Lime Pie. OINK OINK

Fettuccine Alfredo Day

 

Here are today’s food finds about fettuccine:

Fettuccine  is a flat, thick noodle made of flour and egg.(literally meaning “little ribbons” in Italian)

The original recipe for Fettuccine “Alfredo” is pasta made from fettucine noodles tossed with one part parmesan cheese and 3 parts butter.

It was named by an Italian restaurateur at his restaurant Alfredo on the Via della Scrofa in Rome in 1914.

Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford, early movie stars, fell in love with the dish while on their honeymoon in 1927. This helped to make the dish and Alfredo world famous.

There are authentic “Alfredo’s” restaurants in the US, Alfredo’s at Rockefeller Center in New York City is the most well known.
