having our own garden has been a blast! we got a good, early start on it this year and it is already going strong. we've even started harvesting some leeks, herbs and greens and adding them to our meals.

here's a yummy frittata recipe that we adapted and completely altered from "1000 vegetarian meals" cookbook:

step one: go to the garden and pick your fresh ingredients.

step two: wash your fresh ingredients
step three: begin to boil some sliced potato, while also sauteing up some leeks, garlic, shallot and onion
step four: have the man-friend chop up broccoli while you chop up the rest of the greens and herbs from the garden (bok choi, turnip greens, kale, chard, cilantro). add all these things to the skillet
step five: have the man-friend beat about 5 eggs while you add spices to the veggies (turmeric, garam masala, garlic powder, ginger, coriander, cumin, salt, pepper, chili powder, etc). mix the veggies in to the egg. drain the potatoes now that they are soft and add them to the egg mix too.
step six: scrape the bottom of the skillet clean and add a little oil. pour mixture into skillet and let it cook until the egg begins to look more like an omlette and less like straight-up liquid.
step seven: grate some cheese over to the top of the frittata (we used swiss!) and then put it under the broiler until cheese is bubbly and egg is cooked through (be sure to use a skillet that can go in the oven or you will melt the handle!! we heart our cast iron skillet).
step eight: let it cool, slice it up and enjoy!!
