This was described as a cross between a frittata and a quiche. I like both. Despite that, I found this to be eggy and I would cut down to two eggs, next time. The tomatoes gave life to the dish and it is a wonderful way to use tomatoes when you have a summer crop. I know, it is winter, but both hubby and I brought home tomatoes and there is a limit to how many I can use.

It says, "thai" so I have to like the Thai Chicken San Choy Bau that we are making this week in our Donna Hay Wednesday group. It was a bit spicy and the chopped chicken was a nice change of pace.

That week, we concentrated on carrots. I like to check out our vegetable, not only for health benefits, but also for the names of their sisters. Carrots are related to parsnips, fennel, parsley, anise, caraway, cumin and dill. I didn't have a clue about many of these. I, have never seen carrots of other colors or at least, if I had, I didn't know, they were carrots. I am going to a good produce store, looking for purple or red carrots, to start my search. It is fun, shopping when purposely looking for new vegetables. I have definitely expanded my horizons. When, I was thinking about what to make with carrots, I
