Swiss Chard Frittata and Fresh Herbs
I decided to whip up a swiss chard frittata, since I was already blanching some to freeze. It was my lunch, and Hubby's breakfast for the next day. It was kind of an "end of the season" and "just toss it in" kind of meal. I read up on chard and it's good for the heart, as well as fresh thyme. The eggs were topped with fresh chives and thyme. The recent rain and warmer days are providing fresh herbs. Mmm, was this tasty. Did you know thyme helps the body prevent heart attacks, strokes and coronary disease? I didn't. Until I read up on it.
it took until noon to prep the chard for the freezer, and make the frittata.....and
...clean off one table. The dried zinnia seeds have finally left the kitchen too. Any bets on how long the kids will destroy my cleaning job?
