Bacon, Spinach, Asparagus and Feta Cheese Frittata
The whole day yesterday I heard ambulances and police cars – Midsummer in Sweden had pre-started! Many of us Swedes only work half day on Thursday and rush away to where ever they are going to celebrate Midsummer.
Midsummer weekend is the weekend when most people get killed on the roads and in/on the water over here in Sweden. Really sad, but it has been like this so long as I have been an adult. Too much drink goes in and no sense what so ever left – mostly when they are in a boat. Drink and driving isn’t that common anymore – even if it happens here too, but it’s the rush people are in that causes the accidents on our roads.
Landskrona’s emergency service has quite of bit of highway to look after too – and plenty small roads. It was more or less none stop from that I had my breakfast around 09.30am. Plus yesterday was a stunning summer day and loads of people on the beaches and into that cold ocean, I’m sure that has caused some alarms too.
After lunch I toke on my flowered silk skirt on and the camera in my bag and went out for my catch of the day – and went down to castle and the ocean. Indulge my self at the castles cafe – I just enjoyed a wonderful summers day and to be alive. Not many of us that get a second chance, but I’m one of them. Post will follow.
For dinner did I make Libby’s Spinach and Feta Frittata again – don’t know how many times I have it done by now. Just love it and so easy to make – but I added bacon and asparagus to her recipe. Had both in the freezer plus some cushions of frozen heavy cream and I bough a small bag of fresh spinach on Tuesday. Feta cheese and sun dried tomatoes is something I always has in the fridge.
Just lightly fried the bacon – and removed it before I add the garlic and spinach to the pan. Only use only half her recipe (4 eggs). Also I always add some freshly grated nutmeg to the egg mixture – then just follow the recipe.
And it was all mine and I eaten it all too – and I sat on the balcony for nearly 2 hours and the sun was still burning after 09.00pm, before I washed up and crawled up in my big IKEA bed to watch “Immortal Beloved” with Gary Oldman as Beethoven with my stay up on *smile – one of my “soft spot films” – and life felt pretty good on 3rd floor, while outside the blue lights was on time after time. Yesterday was the longest day of the year and in Landskrona the sun was up 17.5 hours. The sun left my balcony 10.00pm.
