Cabin Fare

We had a run around day yesterday. We went to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. We then went out to lunch and ate far too much of course! So, a simple supper seemed in order.

I made a frittata of sorts. There is no precise recipe. I sliced Roma tomatoes and covered them scallions which I cut with scissors. I season this with sea salt and ground pepper. I used 5 eggs. I whisk the eggs and add a big glob of sour cream (we use fat-free) and a handful of grated cheese. I have used many mixtures. Last night was Mexican 4 cheese. Pour this mixture over tomatoes and bake for about 30 minutes at 350. The top should be slightly browned.

It was a rainy, cold and damp day. I couldn't get on the Internet with my computer which is very discouraging. The iPad is a godsend. I am using an app called Blogsy and it is allowing me write a post. However, I cannot correct a mistake after I have published. I need to study their directions a little more - could be user error!

Have a great day.

Frittatas seem to lend themselves to many variations and your tomato and cheese sounds delicious--perfect for a drizzly day. Whole Foods had some really nice looking heirloom tomatoes yesterday.

Hope you get your computer woes figured out soon.

Best,
Bonnie

Thank goodness for iPad. I've considered getting one... I play with Hubbies from time to time, and with the way I an on the keypad I doubt I could construct an intelligible post on Blogsy. Glad it worked out for you though!

Nothing to fear with an error... Your posts have been great. That's right, we have a Trader Joe's in the state now. Must remember that.

Your frittata looks yummy! Thank you for your suggestion in my comments today!

Hi Carol,
We had rainy weather yesterday and it made me in the mood to bake a cake. I love your recipe, everything looks delicious. We have Trader Joe's nearby, I always forget how much fun it is to shop there.

I love the flexibility of a fritatta. Yours looks yummy and it's nice to see a good looking tomato for a change. Sounds like you are settling into the cabin my friend! Have a good week!

Hi Carol it looks very tasty, I would have to leave out the tomatoes as I don't like cooked toms.

Thank you for changing the font, so much clearer and easier to read for my poor old eyes!!!

Next week on the day we meet Maggie it is her birthday!!

See you on Facebook.

Love Jackie.
