Home made


Well, this recipe is about as home made as I can make. Cherry tomatoes from the garden and eggs from our chickens…comprising about 90% of the meal.

Tomato & Fetta Frittata

  1. We also have an abundance of beautiful cherry tomatos so tonight we grilled some chicken and I chopped the tomatoes in half, splashed in some balsamic, olive oil, garlic salt and pepper and then reduced it over a med flame. Spooned it over the chicken and served with salad greens and olive bread.

    Yum! Oscar won’t eat tomatoes and he wiped his plate clean!!!!

    And we figure it had to taste good…since we grew it ourselves 🙂

    Your frittata looks very tasty and I have plenty of tomatoes…
