Why is this a “pseudo” Friday? Because tomorrow we both have the day off in observance of Good Friday!
In honor of this Thursday being a fake Friday, Ted and I enjoyed a “pseudo” happy hour but with a REAL glass of great French Chardonnay, Macon Villages:
For tonight’s dinner, we kept it simple and went with a frittata. Serves 4-6
- 1 cup broccoli florets, steamed 2 min.
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1 cup baby bellas, peeled and sliced thick
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1 tsp fresh dill
- salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup dry vermouth
- 2 cups Egg Beaters
- 2 whole eggs
- 1 TBS Greek Yogurt
- salt and pepper
- 1/4 3 Cheese Italian (Parm., Asiago, Romano mix)
- 1 medium tomato, sliced thin
- 1 package Veggie Beef Skewers (removed from skewers)
Preheat oven to 400 F. Cook the broccoli and drain. Saute the onion about 8 minutes on medium high, add the garlic and saute 1 minute. Add the broccoli, fresh dill, and mushrooms, salt and pepper for about 1 minute and pour in the vermouth. The vermouth should be completely absorbed by the other ingredients in the pan. Remove from heat.
Beat for 2 minutes the 2 whole eggs, the Egg Beaters, the yogurt and salt and pepper. Pour into the saute pan with the onion-broccoli mix. Top with sliced tomatoes. Top with cheese. Top with the pieces of Veggie Beef*. Put in the oven for 20 minutes.
*The Veggie Beef was an after thought. I was surprised that Ted agreed to put this on the Frittata but since it was a new find and we had never tried it, he was game. This particular vegetarian protein is Chipotle BBQ sauce flavor. End result: We didn’t like it. The texture was hard and chewy. There was very little flavor.
The “Yes Man” was funny. We both enjoyed quite a few laughs which is surprising since I’m not a fan of Jim Carey.
That’s a wrap for this Thursday night. If you have tomorrow off, let me know what you’re doing. Take care.
