Our daughter is now home for the summer! We haven’t seen her for four long months, I missed her very much and how better to celebrate her return home than making a nice frittata?
As usual I made the frittata with what I had one hand; duck bacon, broccoli, onions, garlic, chives and parmesan cheese. Our daughter was happily surprised by how good duck bacon is; I cooked the bacon beforehand before incorporating it into the egg mixture and I gave her a piece to taste; her eyes lit up and I would bet that she liked the duck bacon even more than ordinary bacon. The onions and garlic were slowly sautéed and the rest of the ingredients I mixed together in the bowl and then added to the pan once the onions and garlic were soft and translucent.
I bought quite a bit of fruit at the supermarket because not only are berries in season, our daughter also happens to love them. The pineapple is mainly for me; I have been craving pineapple for the past few weeks and I can’t seem to get enough of it.
I forgot to mention Jack in all this family reunion, he squealed with pure happiness when he saw our daughter and his tail was wagging a million miles an hour; it was going so fast it was a blur. The family is almost intact; as soon as our son gets back from gigging, we will be back together as a unit. I have noticed that Jack and I always seem happiest when we are all together under one roof.
