Before we begin….giveaway winner time! The winner of the Anthro gift card is…

aka Julia of Must Come Hungry. Congrats girl!

Now, I seriously still can’t believe it’s Wednesday, friends. But in all honesty, this weekend was super long for me. As you know, my darling cousin came into town on Saturday and we’ve just been having a complete blast every single day! On Sunday, we got our nails done and went out in Arlington, on Monday we did some outlet shopping in Leesburg and caught dinner & a show and yesterday we took the metro into the city to see the Natural History Museum (she’s a science nerd), had a bite to eat in Dupont and putzed around a bookstore.

All in all, it was a perfect weekend. She is looking for jobs out here so I’m praying someone hires her so she can be much closer! Ohio is way too far away.

And clearly, we also ate really good food. Like, on Monday when I made these adorable frittatas.

I saw this recipe on My Recipes and knew I had to make them! I’m a huge fan of mini anything and with the astounding success (to my belly) of my mini quiches, I just couldn’t wait to give another mini egg dish a try. And of course, when they were done, I pulled the piping hot pan out of the oven and took a HUGE bite of the cheesy and gooey looking frittata on the very end.

Before…

After…

I sort of…annihilated it. Whoops. Also? It was freakin’ hot. However, despite a mild burn in my mouth, I was incredibly happy with these mini egg wonders. I mean, what can go wrong when you mix eggs, spinach, onions and feta cheese?

I think what made these was the feta. Feta has such an incredibly rich taste and it paired absolutely perfectly with the milder tastes of the spinach and egg.

After I regained feeling in my mouth again, I clearly gobbled down another one.

I mean look at that rich, hearty spinachy middle? Is there anything more beautiful?

How could a veggie lover resist? These a perfect breakfast for busy weekdays because they can be made a day in advance! So, instead of grabbing a banana on your way to work, grab 2 of these little protein packed numbers instead!

Oh and the best news of all? They’re gluten-free!

    What a fun outing. I love visiting that museum whenever I am in town. Good luck to your friend. These little frittatas look great. I can see you making a batch on Sunday and then having a quick grab breakfast on Monday.

    I make frittata muffins quite a lot but have yet to make it with spinach and feta. Must rectify that. Immediately.

    These look so yummy! I've been thinking about doing these ahead of time to eat during the week and load them with vegetables and egg whites. Do you think they would last a few days?

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
    matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking
    forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    Found this recipe by accident but wow. Didn't have any squash or mushrooms but added a couple of halved grape tomatoes. This is such an awesome recipe.....hope they will freeze.

    The following time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my option to read, however I really thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you might fix in case you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
