Shadow Shot Sunday - Les œufs


Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back, and we endeavour to locate shadows in any venue, outside and inside. On a cold day outside, the changing lighting was pursued inside.

Sometimes shadows are big and bold - or for one dinner last week, very slight...I like eggs cooked a certain way, and that is full of things that mask the egg taste says Patti - no doubt. One way of preparation we rarely do is the frittata. Instead of the usual egg scramble cooked on the range, this finished cooking under the broiler. 

The EB egg and half-and-half texture is fluffy, the potatoes, peppers, tomatoes and onions soft, the mozzarella melted perfectly. Paired with an inexpensive ($3.99) Portuguese red, an elegant meal, complete with shadows from apéritif to desert...

Yummers. I didn't know that was how a frittata got it's lovely toasty, brown color! Aluminum foil on the handle of the pan...such a smart move. Obviously I wasn't taught the finer points of cooking growing up. Now I have a new treat to make for Patrick. Thanks!! Happy SSS.

Now this looks delicious!! I just had tea and toast for breakfast, so I'll keep this in mind for a supper in the near future (since you've so kindly imprinted it on my brain!). I usually just bake mine from start to finish.

The shadow is nice, but the thought of what you all are cooking is far better. Boy, would I love to partake in that meal. It looks wonderful. All of the colors make for such a nice presentation. genie
