be sure you have beans
Take frittata order the night before.
Stockings this year: toblerone, meat sticks, cheese packets.
Set out as morning snacks: lindt truffles, ghiradelli peppermint bark, almonds in shell, trisket crackers to eat with stocking cheese packets. Nice to get away from the all-candy morning.
Had kids shovel driveway before driving out to fetch relatives. Went for a walk after breakfast, except L who was sick. Most beautiful weather EVER.
saute kale and spinach
halve the cherry tomatoes
cut up ham
Brunch: Individual Frittatas and Blueberry muffins.
Frittatas take ~25 minutes to bake.
- 12 eggs
- 3/4 cup whole milk s
- liced baked potato
- cheese: gruyere or cheddar 3/8 cup per order
- baby kale
- baby spinach
- cherry tomato
- roasted red pepper
- artichoke hearts
- sauteed mushrooms
- beans sliced
- sandwich ham
They come out too hot to eat.
Next time, make the frittata first, muffins second?
- Porterhouse Steak
- Olga's Salmon
- diced leftover baked potato, rewarmed in microwave (next time bake set of potatoes)
- broccoli was cut, we ate it earlier by mistake.
- pear salad
- sliced pear,
- 1/4 cup dried cherries,
- 1 cup candied walnuts,
- 5 oz greens,
- 1/2 cup balsamic dressing (too much: cut in half!!)
- leftover mushrooms, rewarmed in microwave
- blood orange soda,
- watered down grape juice.
Steaks on the grill on the deck.
Genius: J teaches me to light the grill with a long candle lighter instead of using built in battery sparker. 5 minutes first side, 4 minutes second side.
Salmon prep topping ahead of time, it may take 15 minutes. bakes for ~12 minutes.
Should have done baked potato ahead of time.
We aimed for a 9:30 breakfast, and ate at 11:00 am (flour bag ripped).
We started making dinner at 3:15 but I wasn't serious about it. and I think started eating before 5pm.
