Another Day

Before I start today’s entry, I have decided to make a few changes on my blog.  The blog will look slightly different so don’t panic, it is not your computer screen causing your eyes to strain, lol….  It is good old me making changes.
Today, Bulldog Man and I had a nice breakfast together, and then took a ride down to the lake.  The lake pictures below give you an idea what our winter has been like, real dry.  I can’t say the weather was great today.  The winds are approximately 15 – 20 mph, the temperature peaked to 60 degrees and the sun kept hiding behind the clouds.  Yes, you heard right clouds.  We’re expecting rain later today.  The weatherman states 80% rain this evening through tomorrow late morning.  

 


Once we returned home after visiting the lake, Bulldog Man decided since we’re expecting rain, it was a great opportunity to fertilize the yard.  The last couple of weeks we have been preparing the property for the up-coming spring.  Since there has been no snow,  we started cutting back unwanted branches, raking up leaves, and small debris.  Picking up stuff crap garbage that conveniently finds its way in the yard from the wind.     

Dinner tonight was excellent.  I tried this recipe created by a cooking enthusiast and member of  Tasty Kitchen "missamy" via The Pioneer Woman” blog by Ree Drummond with a few of my own personal modifications (** modifications to recipe listed below).


Cheeseburger Frittata
 (Servings 8)  -- Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time 30 minutes

  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • ¼ teaspoons Plus Two Dashes Of Salt, Divided
  • ¼ teaspoons Plus Two Dashes Of Pepper, Divided
  • ¼ teaspoons Plus Two Dashes Of Garlic Powder, Divided
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Medium-large Onion, Chopped
  • 10 whole Large Eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons Milk
  • 4 ounces, weight Cheddar Cheese, Shredded, Divided
  • Optional Additions: Bacon, Sautéed Mushroom, Sliced/diced Tomatoes
Preheat oven to 400 F.
I used a 10″ pie pan for this recipe, but a 9″ deep dish should work as well. Grease it with some butter or spray it with cooking spray.
Brown the beef in a skillet over medium heat with a dash of salt, pepper and garlic powder.
In another skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and sauté onion with a dash of salt and pepper. Saute until onions are translucent.
Beat together eggs, milk, 1/2 of the shredded cheddar cheese and 1/4 teaspoon of salt pepper and garlic powder.
Evenly distribute the browned hamburger on the bottom of the pie pan then top it with the sautéed onions.
Pour the egg mixture over the top of the hamburger and onion. Top that with the remaining cheese.
Bake at 400 F for 15-20 minutes until set. (I used a 10″ pie pan, so adjust cooking time accordingly for a different size of pan
**Modifications to recipe:
Used ¼ to ½ teaspoon of Garlic Salt to taste, instead of the salt and garlic powder.  Also used ½ of the onion, instead of 1 whole onion.  I did not add any of the opitional additions.  I did however, add 1 can of “Hatch” green chiles.
