Back in the Kitchen

When we lived at Aspen Meadows I never cooked during the week.  I would ride in the morning and then head into the office after rush hour.  That meant I drove home after the evening rush hour, arriving home at 8:00 or so.  Dinner was usually a bowl of cereal for me and something equally exciting for Brett.

At my new job, people tend to get into the office early and then head out the door by 5:00.  I'm at my desk between 7:30 and 8:00 and back home before 6:00.  I am able to help Brett with the evening chores -- at least, I will until the time changes and it starts getting dark at 4:00 in the afternoon.  I'm also cooking dinner during the week; nothing fancy or time consuming, but cooking nonetheless.

Tonight I roasted some butternut squash and piled it on top of a mixture of lettuce.

I tried something new to go with the salad: a spaghetti frittata.

Fast, easy and quite tasty.  Spaghetti, Parmesan cheese, chopped basil and eggs.


  1. Looks good to me I am hungry now:) Hug B

  2. Your hours sure are better these days. Ooooooeeeeee, I need to try that spaghetti dish. Recipe?

  3. Looks delicious! I always enjoy cooking more when the weather turns cooler. I also find my appetite increases...not so good.
    The light in your evening pics is just gorgeous!! All dreamy and soft.

  4. OMGosh - I could make the spaghetti thing! You must show your recipes, seriously, because that looks WONDERFUL!

    Can you do a working woman recipe series? Honestly, the less time i spend in the kitchen the better it is for all of us LOL

  5. I cooked yesterday for the first time in months. I want to make a fritatta!

    Your new schedule sounds much better.

  6. Glad I ate dinner before I came visiting. ;D

    Every post sounds like life is returning to normal bit by bit...
