Last week I made a fritatta for the first time! It turned out great and was surprisingly easy. I don't know why I hestitated to try making one before.
I used a recipe that called for egg whites only, making it a lower calorie and lower fat dish. I was able to use some of the leftover Easter ham in it too. Even my husband who hates eggs ate it. April's food of the month was "eggs" tying in to the spring reborn theme. The kiddo picked the food, but so far hasn't tried the two egg dishes offered to him: the fritatta or a hard boiled egg. Oh well! I'm thinking next month may be a Mexican theme...inspired by cinco de Mayo. I also love Mexican food, so I'll be working up some healthier recipes of favorites.
On this week's dinner menu:
Monday: Mini muffin (ground turkey) meatloaves, baked potatoes, peas, green salads
Tuesday: Salmon, asparagus and orzo salad with lemon dill viniagrette (This is one of my favorite spring recipes!)
Wednesday: Chicken fajitas, brown rice, green salads
Thursday: Mexican Twist (I will used ground turkey, whole wheat pasta and half the taco seasoning listed in the recipe to make it a bit healthier and lower in calories!), green salads
Friday: Turkey and black bean burgers, sweet potato fries, salads
