So it’s just been one of those weeks again, although having today off was a change. My coworker came back a couple of weeks ago and we decided to institute a new schedule where we flip flop weekends off. So I’ve had the last two weekends off (which was nice) and now it’s my turn to be on call for the weekend, which gives me Wednesday off. It was kinda nice, but I’d like to have Saturday off instead. Oh well, this is WAY better than the 6 day weeks we were working previously!
I totally took advantage of my day off and took a trip to Woodman’s to stock up. I usually make the pilgrimage down there when my pantry is beginning to look bare. It’s so much cheaper for dry goods there. Hopefully I won’t have to do it too many times before they open one down the road from my house. That is going to be the best thing ever for me and the most dangerous!
Even though, I just stocked up, I definitely have to make a trip sometime soon because tonight’s dinner used up all of the eggs in the fridge. I’ve seen a couple different people make frittatas recently and decided that it was in the cards for us. J was all over it too!
I used an idea from Iowa Girl Eats and put pasta in it to bulk it up some. It was definitely different but delicious. It also helped to stretch out the eggs since we only had 4 to use. But with all of the veggies and pasta and a little cheese, it all held together. After sauteing the vegetables for a couple minutes to soften and then throwing the entire pan under the broiler for 5-8 minutes and dinner was done. This is one that is for sure going to be on the menu when we are pressed for time!
