Baked Italian Zucchini Nibblers

Hope everyone had a nice Mother’s Day! As I mentioned, it was the first year that I got to have my daughter with me and it was so nice. Kenny cooked up my omelet and then topped it off with a steak on the grill,,,,,,,,,,,Yum!

Now let me share this delicious recipe with you. I’m sure most of you out there would call this a frittata but I just prefer to call em as I see em! I found this recipe in one of my old cookbooks (probably before the word frittata even existed, ha ha) and with some alterations to the original recipe, they came out pretty damn good, even if I say so my own Selph?  That was just a little pun on our last name and my computer is telling me I need to do a spell check, as if I didn’t know how to spell my last name, really now……….. Even my daughter thought they were pretty tasty. We had them with some of my homemade spaghetti sauce and I think the next time, I will just make a basic pizza sauce for our dipping pleasure! So with that, here we go:

Twice Cooked Scalloped Potatoes

When my daughter brought home a gigantic ham for our Easter celebration, I thought to myself, OK I know we have some guys in the family that aren’t bashful when it comes to eating, including great grandson Ulric, but this seemed a little extreme…….. So I asked her “What’s up with the huge ham?” and she replied, “scalloped potatoes and ham Mom, duh!” Now I have to say that I have had my days with these potatoes, some better, some worse but honestly this plea from her seemed to put a hex on me! I did everything as I normally would do, you know the potatoes, ham, onions and cheese, and an ample amount of milk for the moisture. Then I cooked them as per usual only to check them and find the potatoes still only crisp tender! Kept them in the oven for much longer than I usually do and finally with everyone hungry, took them out and we had CRUNCHY scalloped taters!!

Okay, so now with leftovers in the frig, I’m trying to figure out what the hell to do with them as they had a great flavor but we wanted them softer, what to do, what to do…. Here was a solution we all agreed on, put them in my cast iron frying pan, add some water and see if we could steam them off a little. Again the potatoes would not soften up, OMG! By now I was pulling out my hair, not smart at my age, and ready to feed them to the chickens, but no did not want to waste them. Now it was time to add some oil to the pan and try frying them and ta-da, finally got them to soften up and get cooked to perfection and the next time we have some leftover they will be fried this way and served up at breakfast time with eggs and more ham!!!!!!

Well it’s Friday night, 5 o’clock somewhere as Jimmy Buffet would say and tomorrow we are off to the Air Force Air Show here in Lake City, Florida. We’ve had our tickets for over a month now and have been anticipating this event with bated breath as our grandson, Gunnar is in the Air Force and Kenny’s dad also served our country in the same branch of the military. My brother Wayne made a career with the Navy and even served on the USS Bennington back in the days of the Viet Nam War. He was a teacher, training pilots the instrument panel on their jets. One time when I was young and visiting him at his base in Maryland, he actually got me onto a jet simulator as a pilot and all I could do was CRASH & BURN, it was not a pretty picture but I will never forget the experience! If any of our friends on Cooking With Mama will be there tomorrow, drop us an e/mail and maybe we could get to meet in person, that would be a hoot to actually meet some of our followers, WOW! Gotta go, have a great weekend and will drop a line next week with pics and maybe a whole new story to share………
