Week 27 Thursday (7/17/14)

Recipe Review              
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Sunday Frittata
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         What the heck is a frittata?  My dear friend Donna made one and the boys said it was not their favorite, however I think she has perfected it by now. My guess is that it has something to do with eggs. 
         According to Google’s definition it isan Italian dish made with fried beaten eggs, resembling a Spanish omelet.” Okay, now that doesn’t sound so bad. I know Donna made hers with a lot of veggies, which is why it wouldn’t be a favorite of mine.
         I can’t believe this but I am going to stop writing, and actually make this tonight. I am shocking myself! Who am I becoming?  Of course, I am cutting the green olives and the kale, but I AM GOING IN ……BEWARE!
         I LOVED THIS EGG DISH! I made it with everything but the kale. I did leave in the olives, but used black instead of green.  I also added 10 shakes of Tabasco sauce instead of the 2 – 3 Ree suggested. Next time, I will add more like 15 – 20 shakes, because I didn’t even taste the heat. My first venture into frittata land was a huge success.

Random Reflections        
The Glorious Garden – Fair Rosamund Clematis

         Here is another clematis in my gardens. This flower catches your eye because of the gentle pink stripes and burgundy center. Like all of my other clematis, this one loves full sun.

The tag said:
         The can grow to a height of 12 feet
         They spread to only about 24 inches
         They like full sun or partial shade
         They last all summer and climb up my trellis and occasionally over                            to my fence (if guided)
         This one likes to grow over the previous year’s growth. I just clean                            it up a bit.
         Hummingbirds love this plant
         Like all of my plants – the base is covered with mulch

Irksome Ideas and Images

         As a teacher, I occasionally have to eat with my students. One of my pet peeves is of students who chew with their mouth open. I consider teaching or reinforcing manners a part of my job. Usually, students who are reminded not to talk with food in their mouth, or to chew with their mouth closed, comply right away.  Almost all of my students have lovely manners, but it is only a few who have to be reminded. Here’s to hoping I will have less reminders this year.
