A Happy New Year!

January 15, 2013 § 1 Comment

Sick during the holidays – how sad is that?  A week after and I am still nursing a bad cough, nose still pretty clogged.  I have so much food from the holidays but appetite eludes me.  So, I ended up with more food than ever before.  I bet the people at reception, maintenance, even the guards won’t ever forget me – either they love me to pieces for all the holiday goodies I brought their way or they are avoiding me by now for dumping so much food on them.

I trekked to the doctor’s clinic last week.  “I need to be well by Saturday”, I told him.  And like a good doctor that he is, I am feeling better now, thank you, although I am still not in creative cooking mode.   Until last night, when I whipped up a pleasant meal of leftovers, which I ate with gusto – and that is a wonderful sign that I am on the road to real recovery.

I had some fresh mozzarella that needed to be consumed soon, what to do?  I didn’t feel like a pizza or a sandwich.  I didn’t have fresh basil and tomatoes so a salad is out too.  Besides, I wanted something more filling – a first in weeks!

So, I beat to combine a couple of eggs and a couple of tablespoons of milk.  Sliced the mozzarella.  Washed some leftover spinach my mom sent my way before she left for abroad.  Threw some bacon bits on the pan – I always have bacon, no mater what!!  Then I threw in the spinach, seasoned with salt and pepper.  Poured the egg mixture into the pan as soon as the spinach starts to wilt.  Before turning over, I added the mozzarella cubes.  It’s smoky with a mild cheesy taste.  I think it’s awesome.

    so sorry to hear you were ill during the holidays. what a bummer that is.

    lately i’ve been fascinated with frittata. i even brought a tray over last sunday to church where i was in charge of the coffee hour after service. everyone loved it. i felt really good feeding people with my limited kitchen skills.

    here’s to discovering new ways to cook old ingredients!
