Kale and Sweet Potato Frittata

First things first, are you ready for some jammin’ workout music? As promised, here is my latest workout playlist. Like always, it’s full of upbeat, fun and totally girly music.

That’s just how I roll. Winking smile 

Thank you so much to those of you who recommended some of the above songs on the PBF Facebook page!

Dinner

Tonight’s dinner was pretty in depth! I figured that by making a frittata, dinner would be ready in a flash. I guess I didn’t take into account all the steps that go into making this eggy dish.

First, there’s chopping vegetables. (Poor Ryan cut his finger slicing an onion.) Then there’s blanching kale. Then boiling sweet potatoes. Then sautéing vegetables. Then, finally, baking the frittata.

Sautéing the kale, onion, mushrooms and garlic made our apartment smell fantastic!

After finally getting all the veggies into the skillet, it was time to add the eggs and place the whole mixture in the oven to solidify.

Within 10 minutes of placing the frittata in the oven, dinner was ready!

Between the two of us, Ryan and I polished off the frittata and both went back for seconds.

We both agreed that all the effort was worth it. This frittata was seriously so, so good. I think it would be great for breakfast or brunch as well.

Time to watch the last hour of The Bachelor! If Brad says “My God” one more time, I may throw something at our television.

See ya in the morning, friends!

    You have Shai on your playlist? haha. I thought I was the only one! My husband Ryan and I had “a song” when we were 13…Baby I’m Yours by Shai. I mention it in my blog under “Our Story” 🙂
