I’m taking a total walk on the wild side, breaking all the rules today but when something is so good, you just have to do it.

Yes, I’m ignoring my whole only share recipes when you can actually buy the ingredients commitment today.

Ramp season is over. Grab the tissues, mourn your sorrows in any ramp pesto you might have stuck in the freezer. Until next spring, it’s all a delicious memory.

I had to, I mean I made you this awesome frittata and the ramps are really only a small part of it, easily replaceable with some spring onions or scallions.  Even better – add garlic scapes which should be appearing any moment at the farmer’s market.

Forgive me will you?

I don’t know why but frittatas are just one of those things that I never make, but after looking at all the recipes from brunch week I suddenly had this need to make one.  Plus my get fit for the summer/save money commitment by bringing lunch to work meant leftovers would be perfect.

To say this might now be my official ‘I don’t want to cook it’s too hot meal’ might be an understatement.  Toss some vegetables in a skillet, cook them until they soften, add some eggs and presto 35 minutes later dinner and lunch tomorrow.
