Monday and Tuesday

Monday night's dinner was the Pasta Frittata that I made a few months ago. Very tasty, very satisfying. This was the budget version. The original calls for marscapone and creme fraiche. I used cream cheese and sour cream. Very good. I also added one small green bell pepper diced. This will come as a shock to those of you who know me, but I even considered...thought about...but didn't...add a small bit of broccoli. I can't stand it, but I know it's good for me...I thought this might be a good way to use it. Maybe next time...or I'll still not use broccoli and try another green veg.

On Tuesday morning, I got up and threw together the Braised Brisket recipe and put everything in the slow cooker. When J-lo left for work, he turned it to low. When I got home last night, perfectly cooked. One hour before dinner, I added some quartered white potatoes. When they were tender, served up! Very meaty. Very old skool meat and taters dinner. Nice to use the slow cooker!

I also thought asparagus would be nice in the pasta.
