Vegetable Fritatta

Due to the extreme flea problem I have had at my house, I have camped out at the old Stockell house recently. It has been nice spending more time with Amy.

Last week, Amy and I joined our forces to make a yummy Vegetable Fritatta of sorts. It looked beautiful and was a nice dish for lunch leftovers. :)

A&B's Veggie Fritatta
8 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup of cheese (we used Romano)
2 peppers (we used hot peppers straight from A's garden)
1 small onion
2 cups of spinach
2 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of olive oil
small handful of cherry tomatoes (also from A's garden and only a small amount because B doesn't like tomatoes)
2 tablespoons of basil
handful of Feta cheese crumbs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat eggs, milk, and cheese with a little salt and pepper.
Heat olive oil in skillet and saute garlic and peppers. Add onion and spinach. Once spinach has wilted, add egg mixture. Top with tomatoes and basil. Let cook for 5 minutes. Stir only enough to keep from burning the bottom.
Transfer to oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with feta cheese crumbs. Cook another 5 minutes. Let cool.

*Use cast iron skillet if possible

We did note that next time we would probably use a little more basil for some extra flavor. I noticed that the peppers had kicked in when I ate at a later date, making it even more delicious.

Amy, enjoyed cooking with you once again!

Fill In The Blank Friday: TV Shows

So several of my fellow bloggers participate in Fill-In-The-Blank Fridays so I thought I would join in. This week's theme is TV shows.

1. My favorite current TV show is House. I am an addict! Justin and I have watched all of the episodes that are currently out on DVD. Season 6 comes out on August 31st. Only 11 more days!

2. The TV character I can relate most to is Hannah Montana. (WHAT?!?!) I am serious though. That girl has more bad luck and lucky moments than anybody except for maybe me. We both can laugh about it later with everyone else.

3. My life is like the show Dallas. Lots of family drama. Shocking and yet somewhat expected events. Very memorable.

4. My all time favorite show is Law & Order: SVU. For a girl who is super queasy and a big scaredy cat, I for some reason can't get enough of this show! I am always enthralled and surprised at each ending. How do they come up with so many unique story lines and endings?!?! Plus, Olivia is so bad-A.

5. A TV show that is ridiculously stupid, yet I continue to watch is Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood. Because I don't have cable, I rarely get to see this show. However, if I am ever near a tv with cable and it is on, you will find me on the couch.

6. My favorite TV couple is Carrie Bradshaw and Aiden Shaw from SATC. It was sweet while it lasted. Lorelai and Luke from Gilmore Girls would be a very close second. (Can you tell what kind of guy I like?)

7. One TV show episode that I could watch over and over again is the episode of Full House where Uncle Jesse and Becky have a baby. I laugh myself to pieces each time. Oh memories...

Well if you are new to reading my blog, I am sure that after reading this you think I am shallow and ridiculous. I really though don't watch much tv. (Thus, all of the outdated references.)

If you want to link up, look at The Little Things We Do.

Stay tuned next week for the next Fill-in-the-blank Friday...

I'm In A War...


My house has been attacked.

Ginger and Socrates left me a pricey present.

Round #1 - I salted the entire house. Someone told me you cover house with a layer of salt, let it sit for awhile and then clean it all up. No more fleas. Not the case! It took me hours to get the salt up and still have fleas.
Fleas:1 Beth:0

Round #2- Raid flea bombs. I thought 3 then was told that would be too many. I did 3 anyways. When I showed up expecting no fleas, I was jumped! Sigh.
Fleas:2 Beth:0

Round#3- Goes down between 6-8pm tonight. The Orkin man is coming. He will be visiting me 4 times. He was pricey. (Reasonable though when you have been attacked!) He does come with a money back guarantee. This one is mine boys!
Fleas:2 Beth:1 (hopefully.)
