Friends, Romans & Countrymen! Lend me your…….plates, ‘cuz this Frittata’s gonna get the party started!
When I shared this line over brunch… I got a bunch of groans and head shakes.
“What guys! Shakespeare joke? From Julius Ceaser?”, I said, hoping it would rescue me from the lameness pit. Damn it, this always happens to me! Why do these things sound so much better in my head?!? Questions like this are meant to be a mystery, along with why Sriracha bottles have a green lid…or why Justin Bieber wants to bring back MC Hammer pants. I guess we’ll never know.
I got my Frittata Mojo calling early on Sunday morning. Brunch at home with company to boot, what’s a gal to whip up in a hurry?
My fridge boasted a bevy of leftovers and only few veggies, but even with a situation like this, you can still make a scrumptious, filling, healthy meal that’s Mojo-liscous. Frittatas are amazing because they can do triple-duty: as breakfast/brunch, lunch or dinner. It’s easy enough to whip up – no matter what combo of veggies you’ve got, if you have cheese & eggs, you’re good to go!
For this recipe, I used Asparagus, Leeks, a Boiled Potato, Spinach, Grape Tomatoes, Onions – because that’s what was on hand. And company that came over found it delicious! – The same company that thought my Shakespeare jokes were lame, so you know they’ve got good taste and can count on it 🙂
Alright homies, enough talk, let’s get to Frittata business here. Then I can regale you with more awesome Shakespeare jokes & facts.
PLEASE! I JUST WANT TO KNOW HOW YOU MAKE A FRITTATA!
* You can dial back on the Cheese, but it’s part of what makes the Frittata amazing. You know who else loved Cheese? Shakespeare.
Here’s what he had to say:
“I had rather live with cheese and garlic in a windmill, than feed on cates and have him talk to me”
(Henry IV, Part 1, III, 1)
What a creative insult! For the record, I too would rather live with cheese and garlic in a windmill than feed on cates. Mostly because living in a windmill sounds like a cool experience 😛
Did you know the phrase “Knock, Knock, Who’s There?” was from Shakespeare’s lexicon? Didn’t exist in writing before him. I wonder what cool knock knock jokes he would have had.
I’d rather live with cheese & garlic in a windmill than feed on cates and have him talk to me.
You’re sharing good food with good company, I think that’s partly finding your Mojo 🙂
