spinach + egg + cheese = yum @ 09:21 am

Tags: ,

Friday night, we took toys to Kev's. Saw Aaron and Kirsten there for a bit.
Saturday night was another shindig. Saw Aaron and Kirsten there for a bit.
Sunday was brunch at our place. Saw Aaron and Kirsten there for a bit.

Brunch was fun, and in some strange synchronicity, the same weekend that we were enjoying Rebecca's spinach-y egg-y cheese-y strata, some of our neighbors to the north were enjoying Warren's spinach-y egg-y cheese-y fritada, which I may have had a long-distance hand in creating.
Anyway, we and A&K and Craig and Jaime got along splendidly, lubricated by midmorning mimosas. It's strange to think that of the five other people at brunch, I will soon have married all of them.

Other brief notes: We got a Christmas tree and decked it out in ornamental finery. We watched the Muppet Christmas Carol. Richard, since he will likely never have a chance to do this to his own highly hypothetical children, forbade me from wedding Rebecca. I even managed to churn out a few holiday cards.

One thing I LIKE about that recipe is that it's cheap. How can it have cost $26?

If I remember it, it's:

spinach (frozen, about $1)
cottage cheese ($2 maybe--I always use this instead of the other fancy-shmanzy cheese also mentioned in the recipe)
eggs ($1)
parmesan $3 (okay, parmesan is expensive!)
cheddar $3
bread crumbs - negligible, if you have stale bread heels in the freezer, as I usually do.

So I'd guess $10, max, for a maindish that feeds 6 (at least) Am I forgetting the truffles or caviare or something? For 26 bucks, you should also be able to squeeze in a salad, a loaf of bread, and a bottle of wine!

Re: Weird!

I used Feta, Cheddar, Parmesan & Ricotta as the recipe suggested. That was close to $15 right there. If I had used cottage cheese, I'm sure it would have been much less but I really wanted to use all those different cheeses. Let's face it, America has cheap cheese.

I also bought bread crumbs because I didn't have any spare bread to use.
