We did our quarterly trek out to Wegman’s yesterday.  There’s a reason I usually shop alone.  It’s a LOT less expensive! 🙂

We bought more than we needed but not a lot of anything that will go bad any time soon…  I just won’t have to shop for a while.

One thing I did decide to use up right away, though was a basket of fresh peas.

For those of you who have never tasted a fresh pea – it is light-years away from anything canned or frozen you may ever taste.  They’re just wonderful.

So I used them to make a fritatta for lunch today!

I sauteed a quarter of a large sweet onion in a bit of butter and olive oil and added the peas.  I cooked them about 6-7 minutes and added 6 eggs I had whipped up with fresh mint, oregano, thyme, and basil from the yard.  A bit of salt and pepper, and then added about 3 ounces of ricotta salata.

I placed it under the broiler until lightly browned, and luncheon was served.  I had a half-loaf of a great Italian Pane I had also picked up yesterday, and it made great toast!

My stomach is smiling!
