easy greek frittata

easy greek frittata
a month or so ago, robyn emailed me this greek frittata recipe since it looked so good but is something her boys wont eat. my boys are not at all picky, so i made it right away and it was delicious! and so easy! we all loved it, even though it was super salty. i should have read the reviews that warned against adding all the salt.  the feta has plenty of salt and it was fine without any extra added the second time i made it. but i think maybe 1/2 tsp is about right for our tastes.
10 eggs

whisk whisk whisk - dont add that salt!

spinach, tomatoes, feta and onion ready to go

cut the tomatoes and toss them in

throw in some onion - it calls for scallions and i can't always get those

crumble and add feta (and eat a piece)

throw in the spinach

mix it a bit

dump it into your hot olive oily casserole dish

and bake
this has become a family favorite and is really easy to throw together after a long day. thank you, robyn!

greek frittata from real simple
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 10 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt (no way! maybe 1/2 tsp.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 5-ounce bag baby spinach
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 4 scallions (white and green parts), thinly sliced (or any oniony substance)
  • 8 ounces feta, crumbled
  1. Heat oven to 350° F.
  2. Add the oil to a 2-quart casserole and transfer to oven for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt, and pepper. Add the spinach, tomatoes, and scallions and combine. Gently stir in the feta.
  4. Remove casserole from oven. Pour the egg mixture into casserole. Bake until the frittata is browned around the edges and slightly puffed and a knife comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.

about a month ago danielle and i got together to make a batch of laundry soap. i had seen a video that candidmommy made about it on youtube, and got the recipe from the duggars website. the soap has worked just as well as the ones we buy from the store, but is so much cheaper! this recipe makes TEN GALLONS of detergent.

awesome water bottle giveaway!!! - ENDED!

  happy birthday to me!! i turn 30 today, so i thought i would do something fun and have my first giveaway! yay! now i know it's a bit silly to have a giveaway on my little bitty barely ever updated blog, but that's ok - i'm a bit silly myself.

so i've got one of these awesome thermos roho hydration bottles up for grabs. i got one for mother's day 2010 and have been pretty much attached to it since then (alice was the other thing i asked for for mother's day, and i've pretty much been attached to her too). a second one followed for christmas so that i can rotate them out. they are stainless steel. they have a really neato lid so you dont have to unscrew the top all the time (i hate that). you can open the bottle and take a drink one-handed. a ring on the lid pops up so you can grab it with just one free finger when you're carrying 20 things, two bags and a baby. plus it fits in cup holders. and looks pretty nice, too.

i love these water bottles!

so all you have to do to win this fabulous piece of hydration equipment is leave a comment telling me your name and something interesting about yourself. everyone besides jeremy can enter (he asked - he likes these water bottles too). i'll pick a random winner on june 23rd.

aren't you so excited?! i am!
