Disappearing Spaghetti Squash Fritatta

 
This could easily have been called easy fritatta, or delicious fritatta, but I named it disappearing fritatta because when I made it it looked huge and I intended on eating only half of it...then I went back for another piece...then another, well you get the picture.  Here's how to make it.

Split the squash lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Cook the squash by either baking it, boiling, or microwaving (I baked mine), then shred the interior with a fork, which resembles spaghetti, hence the squash's name.

Combine the squash with a couple eggs and other ingredients. I added raw onion, bell pepper, shredded Buffalo Wing Cheddar Cheese, a little garlic, and a pinch of gray sea salt. Mix the items together, then pour them into a preheated oven-proof skillet that contains a few tablespoons virgin olive oil. Place the pan in a preheated oven for about 10 minutes...enough time to pour yourself a glass of wine, cut some fruit, etc. I did eat this with a glass of wine and I couldn't help but think of the title of one of my favorite food books, An Omelet and a Glass of Wine, by Elizabeth David...the food writer who not only inspired the way I write about food, but actually influenced how I cook...but that's another story, or at least another blog post.

By the time I poured my wine, washed and cut an apple, fed my dogs and toasted a slice of bread the fritatta was done, and it was delicious.

For about a month now I've been wondering what the hell these were hanging off the cucumber vines in my garden. When I googled orange cucumber I found that there are/were multitudes wondering the same thing. It also seems that most, like me, thought they were planting pickling cucumbers. As it turns out (from the best that I can tell) these are a somewhat new crossbred variety designed to be loaded with vitamins. To read short article about them at the website of the USDA click here. To see a photo of them compared to pickling cucumbers (what I thought I was planting) click here. They are interesting looking...and tasty, too...they have an almost acidic, lemony aftertaste to them...I s…

I eat a lot of bread; I always have. I eat bread virtually with every meal, and thus I feel that I am living proof that bread does not make a person fat. I find it odd that humans have been consuming bread in one form or another for something like 6 thousand years...and all of a sudden it is considered fattening. The problem, I think, is lifestyle and the quality of the bread you consume...I'll admit …

Ezekiel Bread...my interpretation

I've posted recipes for this bread--or variations of it--in the past on numerous occasions, but the two most popular are here and here. Those two posts, in fact, draw the largest amount of visitors to this blog everyday (through search engines, I imagine). Yup, I can carry things on my bike until I'm blue in the face, and talk about quotes and all things spiritual...but the topic that gets the most hits are my recipes for Ezekiel Bread.

This post is a little different in that I made the bread at home (opposed to at work in a commercial kitchen), and I did not use any refined (white) flour; just whole wheat. And for that reason the recipe is slightly different than the others (a printable recipe follows the pictures). This one, I believe, is more true...refined flour was unknown in biblical times. But I'm getting ahead of myself. In this post I also wanted to offer some of my personal views on Ezekiel bread and its recipes in general (I know what you're thinking...here…
