More Vegetable than Egg Frittata

I love this recipe because it can be changed to suit whatever vegetables you prefer.


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 4 C mixed vegetables (we used sliced Swiss chard, cut-up asparagus, and diced zucchini)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 C fresh basil leaves (optional)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 C freshly grated parmesan cheese (optional)
  1. Put 1 tablespoon of the oil in 12″ nonstick skillet over medium heat. when hot, add onion and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. add vegetables and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. raise heat to medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 10 minutes. adjust heat as necessary so vegetables brown a little without scorching.
  2. Turn heat to low when vegetables are nearly done and add basil, if using. cook, stirring occasionally, until pan is almost dry, up to 5 minutes longer for wetter ingredients such as mushrooms.
  3. Beat eggs and cheese (if using) in bowl while vegetables cook. season with remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt and freshly ground black pepper. add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan. Pour in eggs, using a spoon if necessary to distribute them evenly. cook, undisturbed, until eggs are barely set, about 10 minutes. run under the broiler for a minute or two to brown very slightly.
  4. Cut into wedges and serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.

Here’s some fun facts for you.

Paul Robshaw sent us these fun random facts.  Enjoy.
Q: Why do men’s clothes have buttons on the right while women’s clothes have buttons on the left?
A: When buttons were invented they were very expensive and worn primarily by the rich. Since most people are right-handed, it is easier to push buttons on the right through holes on the left. Because wealthy women were dressed by maids dressmakers put the buttons on the maid’s right! And that’s where women’s buttons have remained since.

Q: Why do ships and aircraft use ‘mayday’ as their call for help?
A: This comes from the French word “m’aidez” – meaning ‘help me’ — and is pronounced, approximately, ‘mayday.’

Q: Why are zero scores in tennis called ‘love’?
A: In France, where tennis became popular, the round zero on the scoreboard looked like an egg and was called ‘l’oeuf,’ which is French for ‘the egg.’ When tennis was introduced in the US Americans (mis)pronounced it ‘love.’

Q. Why do X’ at the end of a letter signify kisses?
A: In the Middle Ages, when many people were unable to read or write, documents were often signed using an X. Kissing the X represented an oath to fulfil obligations specified in the document. The X and the kiss eventually became synonymous.

Q: Why is shifting responsibility to someone else called ‘passing the buck’?
A: In card games it was once customary to pass an item, called a buck, from player to player to indicate whose turn it was to deal. If a player did not wish to assume the responsibility of dealing he would ‘pass the buck’ to the next player.

Q: Why do people clink their glasses before drinking a toast?
A: It used to be common for someone to try to kill an enemy by offering him a poisoned drink. To prove to a guest that a drink was safe it became customary for a guest to pour a small amount of his drink into the glass of the host. Both men would drink it simultaneously. When a guest trusted his host he would only touch or clink the host’s glass with his own.
Q: Why are people in the public eye said to be ‘in the limelight’?
A: Invented in 1825 limelight was used in lighthouses and theatres by burning a cylinder of lime which produced a brilliant light. In the theatre, a performer ‘in the limelight’ was the centre of attention.
Q: Why is someone who is feeling great ‘on cloud nine’?
A: Types of clouds are numbered according to the altitudes they attain, with nine being the highest cloud. If someone is said to be on cloud nine that person is floating well above worldly cares.
Q: In golf, where did the term ‘Caddie’ come from?
A. When Mary Queen of Scots went to France as a young girl, Louis King of France, learned that she loved the Scots game ‘golf.’ He had the first course outside of Scotland built for her enjoyment. To make sure she was properly chaperoned (and guarded) while she played, Louis hired cadets from a military school to accompany her. Mary liked this a lot and when returned to Scotland (not a very good idea in the long run) she took the practice with her. In French, the word “cadet” is pronounced ‘ca-day’ and the Scots changed it into ‘caddie.’
Q: Why are many coin banks shaped like pigs?
A: Long ago dishes and cookware in Europe were made of a dense orange clay called ‘pygg’. When people saved coins in jars made of this clay the jars became known as ‘pygg banks.’ When an English potter misunderstood the word he made a container that resembled a pig. And it caught on.

The Thinking Life: How to Thrive in the Age of Distraction

by P. M. Forni

In this topsy-turvy world, who among us has the luxury to sit down in a quiet place and think about the life we want to live? Author P. M. Forni makes an extremely compelling case as to why we must find the time to make an earnest self-examination of the important things in our life.

Why? Because, “If life is valuable,” says Forni, “it only makes sense to attend to it constantly.” And giving attention to the present moment is one way to seek relief from the frenzy and inefficient acts of multi-tasking that seem to be today’s norm. In 12 short chapters, the author packs a lot of solid advice and reflective questions to put the reader on a path to maximize the abilities of attention, reflection, introspection, positive and proactive thinking, self-control, creative thinking, problem solving and self-knowledge.
