i decided at first to do a ham and cheese omelette, since we had leftover ham, but then got inspired to do a frittata instead (thank you alton brown!)
i have been wondering what to do with my mini broccoli florets. it certainly isn’t enough for a stir fry, but i didn’t want them to go back (or get eaten) while i decided. and what goes better with ham and cheese and eggs than fresh grown broccoli!
now, i don’t really consider myself to be wimpy when it comes to bugs. i traipse around the yard in my bare feet. but i have to say, the concentration of insect life on the broccoli was almost overwhelming to me. there were little green caterpillars, which upon seeing, i totally remembered from picking broccoli with my poppa when i was a kid. those things are hard to find amidst the flowers.
but there was another kind of bug too. maybe some kind of ladybug? i dunno. i will take a pic for you guys later and see if anyone recognizes it and knows if they are a positive or negative influence on a small garden plot.
i de-bugged my produce and into the pan it went! i tried to get a picture of its golden fluffy goodness while it was finishing in the oven, but my phone didn’t seem to like being plunged under the broiler.
the end result was tasty, but i will admit to being a little tense about the possibility of biting into one of those little green fuzzy guys that i might have missed.
