March to the beat of Spring.
Easy to prepare Frittata
You’ll be singing a different tune about Spring cleaning when your home is prepped with the necessary supplies.Here are a few essentials that you’ll need:
INDOORS Storage containers: Have an extra stock handy to help organize your closets. New toilet brush: Are you rinsing and cleaning after every use? If not, it may be time to consider purchasing a new one.
3 large red potatoes, peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes 1 cup diced onion Salt and freshly ground black pepper 4 to 5 tablespoons olive oil 6 large eggs 2 to 3 tablespoons freshly grated Romano cheese Minced fresh parsley leaves
Baking soda: This can be used to make several homemade cleaners.
Pat dry the potatoes and onions.
Arm length rubber gloves: While you might be up to your arms in dirt and dust, with these you can at least protect them.
In a large, nonstick skillet set over moderate heat, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil until hot. Add the potatoes, salt and pepper and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and just tender. Transfer to a plate.
Batteries: Spring is a great time to check the batteries in your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors...safety first! Extra trash bags: You may not realize how many you go through while cleaning every room in your house. OUTDOORS Caulk:Over time, the seals around your doors and windows can become damaged from being exposed to the extreme hot and/or cold weather. Paint: For more than just aesthetics, it also protects your home’s exterior from the elements.
In a bowl, combine the eggs, Romano cheese, salt and pepper. Add the vegetable mixture and gently stir to combine. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of oil to the skillet and heat it over moderate heat until hot. Add the vegetable and egg mixture and cook it over moderately low heat until golden brown. Invert a plate over the skillet and flip the frittata onto the plate. Add another tablespoon of oil to the skillet and slide the frittata back in, uncooked side down. Cook until completely set. Transfer to a plate and cut into wedges. Sprinkle with parsley. Recipe courtesy of foodnetwork.com
Scrub brushes: Use to scrub and freshen up patio furniture.
