Zucchini, how do I love thee?
Let me count the ways…
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach
when feeling out of sight…
*makes scratchy DJ noise* …my love ain’t that deep. But deep enough for me to serve it thrice in less than two weeks.

Hi-yah! And welcome! Very happy that you could make it! In case you forgot, today is Friday and Flashback Friday is about to happen. Ready?

Ohrid, Macedonia at Bellevue

Ahhhhh… That was MY Friday morning view, 3 weeks ago. OHRID, OH how I truly, TRULY LOVE thee! Until next time, you beautiful, ancient city, YOU!

Due to staring at pictures of my Macedonia vacation, I’ve been sort of off the grid lately, feeling nostalgic and inching closer to THIS time zone… jet lag, you suck!

Back to our regularly scheduled program.

Soooo, have you ever had fresh herbs-flavored olive oil? NO?! Please get awn’ that train, stat. My besties at STAR can hook you up. 😀

Annnnd since I am a devoted fan, I included their Olive Oil with Fresh Basil (love!!!!) in today’s recipe. I also drizzled the rest of that bottle all over my lunch-salads this entire week, treating myself to all the good things food has to offer.

A frittata (or is it an omelet? or crustless quiche, OR egg casserole!) is a very versatile recipe. You can serve it at any meal (this is why I love it the most!) and you can vary the vegetables according to taste. However, loading it up with all the green veggies (Hello zucchini!) that you can find is, in my opinion, the perfect solution for those “I hate veggies!” eaters. Besides, it’s just better this way. To eat zucchini and all other vegetables while we can, before losing ourselves in the upcoming pumpkin, caramel, chocolate, Fall FOOD deal. It’s just better.

Sometimes I make this Zucchini Frittata just for myself at around 3:12 pm, while I’m still alone in the house, “working”, just because I feel like it. The fact that I get to use my cast iron skillet is a bonus.

Also? Basics like this are why I love food. Dishes with fresh ingredients that people (ME) feel comfortable making? This breakfast/brunch/brinner meal is just that, in a nutshell.

Having a bottle of Ferran Adria’s Fresh Basil Olive Oil? Me so lucky! (It really is THAT good!).

Now that I’ve used up all my parentheses for the rest of the year, I have to say that this was well worth it.

    This recipe turned out a nice, moist frittata. I usually avoid frittata because they often turn out so dry. I used the shorter of the cook times: 4 mins. Instead of 5; 5 mins. Instead of six. I used an oven approved non stick skillet. Then using oven gloves I held a plate over skillet and turned the frittata out with a rounded top. Also, I used crumbled blue instead of feta – personal preference. Anyway, the recipe survived all these adaptations very well. It’s a keeper.
