Long Weekend Frittata

Long Weekend Frittata

Its a long weekend here in Canada! Monday is Family Day, which means basically everyone has a nice long weekend. It feels so nice and lazy knowing I have three days to get ready for next week instead of two! Plus we have some family in town for the weekend and have lots if fun plans with them - including going to see Les Mis at the National Arts Center. 

We are also babysitting an extra doggy. My in-laws have a cocker spaniel, shitzu, poodle mix. She is probably double Zoey's size, but Zoey is only 9 pounds, so she is pretty small. They are both cat napping in the sun right now. One on the carpet and one on the bed. We just went for a complicated walk. Maple, the guest doggy is getting older and cannot see 100% anymore nor is she used to navigating a condo building with elevators and lots of doors, so getting out of the house is a little silly! She kept trying to run out of the elevator this morning just as the doors were closing..

In honour of the long weekend, what is better than a frittata for breakfast? Especially because you get leftovers! This one is literally PACKED with veggies, All the better to set you up for a long weekend, or really any day. 

Side note...I have to chill with the exclamation marks...I just went through and deleted at least 4. I taught my grade 9's a punctuation lesson on Thursday, and we talked about not overusing exclamation marks. What a hypocrite I am, I 100% overuse them. I am just a happy person, and don't get riled up all that easily (except when it comes to feet in a hot yoga class), so I try to express that with exclamation marks. I need to chill with the over enthusiasm (!). Ha.
