Zucchini Frittata #FoodieExtravaganza


Foodie Extravaganza is where we celebrate obscure food holidays or cook and bake together with the same ingredient or theme each month.

Posting day for #FoodieExtravaganza is always the first Wednesday of each month.

This month, we're celebrating zucchini with Sue of Palatable Pastime leading the charge. She wrote: "National Zucchini Day - let's have some fun using this versatile vegetable in your favorite recipes. Note the actual holiday is on the 8th, the event is on the 1st."

Zucchini Master
He still talks about this zucchini. "Remember when I grew a zucchini that was almost as big as I was?" he asks enthusiastically. Yes! He did plant some Eight-Ball Zucchini this year, but they didn't do very well. So, I picked up some regular-sized squash at the farmers' market for this creation.



Zucchini Frittata
Frittata is something that we make all the time as a way to use up leftover veggies. But if you use one kind, in this case zucchini, and slice it really thin, it creates an elegant slice. This was one very large zucchini, six eggs, a pat of butter, herbs from the garden, and really good salt for a delicious summertime dinner!

Ingredients makes one 8" frittata
  • 3 to 4 zucchini, thinly sliced (I use my mandolin slicer set on the thinnest setting)
  • 1 T butter
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 C fresh herbs (I used oregano, thyme, and parsley)
  • freshly ground pepper
  • flake salt for serving

Procedure
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Butter your baking dish and layer in your zucchini. Beat the herbs and ground pepper into the eggs. And pour the eggs over the zucchini. Move the zucchini around to make sure that the egg mixture penetrates to the bottom of the pan.

Cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 50 minutes. Uncover and return to the oven for an additional 10 minutes. Let cool slightly. Sprinkle with good quality flake salt and serve. This is just as good cold the next day.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
