Well, having started been inspired to grow my own basil by Food CHallenge #2, I wanted my menu for my friend to incude basil. I decided on a tomato mushroom basil frittata. I had hped to get the eggs from the farm 1/2 mile from home, but they didn;t have any. There are no farmers' markets at this time of year, so I figured that the farm store was the next best thing. I went to Bardy Farms, where I found organic eggs. I made the frittata and a garden salad, using as many organic ingredients as I could. I served uot lunch with homemade iced tea.
The frittata and salad complemented each other well; the iced tea made everything feel summery.
I hadn't seen my frined in a long, long time, so we ate and caught up. It was lovely.
Oh, I wasn't following a recipe, so I found that I had chopped up way too much tomato and mushroom, so I threw another frittata in the oven, which I'll serve for my husband for supper.
