Caramelized Onion and Rainbow Chard Frittata

Caramelized Onion and Rainbow Chard Frittata
Oh my goodness gracious. I have a very important announcement. I just made the frittata of DREAMS. Dreams I tell you! I don’t know how I haven’t posted a frittata on here before (because it’s one of my favorite go-to meals), but this one was truly remarkable.

I had a wonderful day. It began with coffee as any good day does (well, any day), followed by a walk in the ‘burbs with an adorable yellow lab I was sitting who has the softest ears on God’s green earth (really…I can’t get over it)…

Then did my first cooking demo at a farmers market! Local farmers + Kid Power (the kids’ gardening group I volunteer with) + simple and delicious dressing recipes + 70 degree DC weather = a morning of the perfect cooking demo. I then visited Ben’s Chili Bowl for the first time with an old friend. I made Arnold Palmers after a beautiful walk down 12th; painted my nails in the perfectionist way I do….and then what? I’ll tell you what! FRITTATA TIME!

Don’t stop! Keep reading…

Guess why I smile a lot….Cause it’s worth it :)  Wise words from Marcel the shell (3:45 mark). It’s true, and I love to smile. Now admittedly, sometimes we all like to wallow in our sad situation – whether you got the worst hair cut, someone toyed with your heart, or work is crushing your soul – but then go for a run and/or scream, and then let it go (at least for the time being), and smile. I’m sure y’all know this, but even if you force a smile, you’ll feel less stressed and happier….it’s science. Click this link if you don’t believe me: http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2012/07/study-forcing-a-smile-genuinely-decreases-stress/260513/  Even if you do believe me, click it anyway. Really, there’s quite the picture of a ginger on there. Frightening? Cute? We’re not sure. (I almost went with the Scientific American article, but it was just some average brunette smiling. This one is way better.)

Maybe it’s a chicken and egg situation with me normally. Unknown. But truthfully, when I’m frustrated or pissed off I actually have looked at myself and forced a smile. It absolutely helps.
Smile.
