Fall Frittata with Crispy Potatoes and Soy Chorizo

September 24, 2016

In New York, Fall is here and gone before we even realize the weather has changed. Mornings with a hint of sunny heat and just right breeze get away from us faster than we’d like.

Frittatas stretch those mornings a little longer. Fast to make. Ready to take on whatever’s in the refrigerator. Delicious to eat. A great way to find an extra fifteen minutes to laze over the weekend paper…which I just started getting in paper format.

That’s right. A PAPER newspaper. Novel right? Eliminating one of many digital elements has been another great way to stretch time. Reading the news in paper format seems to slow things done to a pace of days gone. Unfortunately recent news from Tulsa and Charlotte are creating a real dent in the pleasure of reading a paper newspaper. Hopefully November will deliver us with change that can move us forward towards a more positive future with gun control and decreased racial and ethnic tension.

But on to lighter topics like this fluffy frittata below…

Just discovering your very entertaining site, and reading this last post makes me sad! I hope that the election and subsequent events haven’t stopped your writing? In any case, planning to use your Chana Saag recipe as one inspiration for a future post on my site (about Holi) if you want to check it out. Thank you!

Haha, while saddened about the election results, that is not what stopped my writing. Work and life just have been busy 🙂
