Thanks for the welcome and the suggestion. That sounds so good... (said boyfriend and I cohabit, and as he's dreadfully thin, I am trying to plump him up... therefore constantly have to dance around his picky but un-refined (hehe!) palate...)

It's funny, I was thinking about eggs the other day and how I rarely use them in anything but breakfast, though I always keep a dozen or so hanging out in my fridge. I've been wondering about this dish I had in Spain... the only eggs we could get because apparently they're not breakfast foodstuff over there... chorizo, potatoes, in this cute little skillet thing, eggs, onions, so good. *shakes head of image* Anyway, I've been wanting to try making a frittata but... alas... no skillets quite right and definitely no kitchen space to store such a skillet. Looks delish. I'm trying to cut a piece off my screen...

Yvo, let me know if the squash and sausage trick works ;-)

Mmmm, I know how you feel about the skillet but now after having them let me convince you: just get at least one. Store it anywhere. Under your bed, in your closet, use it as a coffee table. Just purchase one. You'll love it. And, yes, what you mention above is the Spanish tortilla. (Nothing to do with mexican style) They are very much like a frittata indeed. They're incredible. Especially when you start by slicing the potatoes very thin and slow-cooking them in olive oil to cook them before adding the eggs, meat and onions. I'll do a post on them one day too. They are divine.

I went to the store tonight to buy some eggs, and that song was playing in my head! I love making fritattas (or tortillas as I call them since I lived in Spain for a few months). Baked eggs are the perfect blank slate for whatever your heart desires.


Aha! Without the egg I wouldn't be able to make your Mushroom Bucatini! I've purchased the criminis and thinking of making it for Sunday brunch if we don't stuff ourselves at the Sagra of Black-eyed peas and Pork skin on Saturday night. ;-)

P.S. Thanks for reminding me that I need to replace my old non-stick skillets. Subito.


Ahh----Frittata....the best recipe for eggs and especially with asparagus.
