Vegetable Frittata

A good morning: we are all home together, I manage to sneak out of bed to catch the quiet peace of the sunrise and transform the last of our garden produce into something delicious for breakfast, while sipping some hot coffee.

I love our days together.  I often think of how wrong our society lives- we form a family of the people we love most, but spend little time together. We work away from home, school away from home, play away from home. 

My husband was raised on a dairy farm. His family spent  every day together. Woke with the sun, completed morning chores, gathered for breakfast and scheduled the remainder of their day- all together.  He tells me what a blessing that was. He wants that for our family. I want that too.  So today, we enjoy our time, until we can line up our goals and make a career together, at home.

And this day begins with a frittata.

Tomato, Garlic, and Mozzarella Frittata

(This dish served 3, but just increase ingredients for more portions!)

1 cup diced tomatoes, any variety 
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tblsp olive oil
Salt to taste
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella 

Preheat oven to 400f.  Preheat sautéed pan over medium heat, add olive oil and tomatoes, sautée until soft, approximately 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Whisk eggs and milk, pour on top if tomatoes and garlic.  Cook until edges are firm, about 5 minutes.  Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Place pan in oven and cook until cheese is browned and bubbly, approximately 10 minutes.

Enjoy this dish with your family, and be sure to give thanks for your time together!
