This looks so good! I love sauteeing regular sausage with veggies, usually zucchini and eggplant. Next time I'll try using chorizo ;-)

I figured this would happen...just as I did the increase in price for quinoa! Unfortunately for me, I love both quinoa AND kale! Not because they're "in" but because I have developed a profound foodie-love for them! lol! Speaking of quinoa, I just bought some (in Italy) and paid over $10 CDN for 400 grams! Ouch!

I just finished an online course which has kept me SO busy for the last month AND out of the kitchen...this was the first weekend in a while that I cooked up a storm!!!!! After seeing a post on thekitchn I was inspired to remake a similar recipe I had sitting in my repertoire for over a year now! I also made a cheesy polenta bake with homemade tomato sauce, pesto, watermelon aqua fresca, baked bruschetta eggplant, and polenta biscotti!

I've kind of given up on omelettes...mainly because if I see any runny bit of the egg instead I'll gag! This post has convinced me to give them another shot! I do have to say as well that I much prefer frittatas...and so do my kids ;-)

I hate when people chew gum and let the entire world see and hear what they are chewing!!!! I have to admit though, I'm a gum chewer! I just can't do mints...I feel like my breath loses it's freshness the minute I finish chewing on them!
