Breakfast Strata

breakfast strataYesterday I decided we were in desperate need of a proper weekend. NO work. Zero. Zilch. The last two weekends were quite full, and our only break was Saturday afternoon. The next two weekends (wait, make that three) will be even busier. Next weekend I have a press event (I’ve been invited to try out a new restaurant, trust me, it’s work) and the one after that I will be in Amsterdam with a designer and photographer who are flying in from London for a special photo shoot (more on that later). Halloween weekend will probably be spent writing about the experiences of the weekend before. Geez, I’m in need of a break just writing this!
Anyhow, back to that ‘proper’ weekend, which to me implies comfort food, good wine and lots of couch time with my dog Pastis. The little rat. You won’t believe what he did yesterday, by the way. He went on a barking fest while I was on the phone conducting an important interview. Have you ever heard the bark of a dachshund? Little dogs, major bark.

Tomato, Spinach & Mozzarella Frittata, with a Side of Inspiration

frittataI just finished watching a video posted by a friend on Facebook that left me with a huge lump in my throat. Set to a melancholic song, old photographs of a family — children, grandchildren, marriages, births, deaths — slowly passed before my eyes. Each one full of emotion. Each one telling a story. A meaningful story.

Omelette Muffins

omelette muffinsSunday mornings are for spoiling the family. Hubby starts the day with a session of squash and by the time he returns around 11 a.m., I have a nice brunch on the table. Today I made these delicious omelette muffins. They keep well for a day or two, so they’re perfect as a quick weekday breakfast, too. In fact, you can even freeze them.
Here’s the recipe. Enjoy.
