That is a fact. It probably isn't the best way to improve my times, but I do enjoy a nice indulgence after a good hard run. Most Tuesday nights after a tough track workout I head home to cuddle up with my personal optimal post-run delight: a milkshake (or 2... depending on the workout :) ).
Last night I didn't have time to eat dinner beforehand, trying to get the kids fed and bathed before the babysitter came over. So I whipped this up as my post-run meal when I got home and got the kids in bed. So easy!!!
Zucchini and Basil Frittata
Preheat oven to 350
Sautee 1 medium, or 2 small chopped zucchini in 1 tbl butter and 1 tbl olive oil, in an oven safe skillet.
Add 1/2 medium chopped onion. (I also added scallion just because I have a lot in the garden to get rid of).
After about 7 minutes of sauteeing, add 2 chopped roma tomatoes. Sautee just a bit longer, remove from heat and sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste (or sautee fresh, I used powder in the interest of time).
Add grated parmesan cheese, and a generous amount of fresh torn basil to cover the top.
In a mixing bowl, whip 6-8 eggs (I did 6, since I was feeding both Kevin and I), and whisk in about 1/4 cup milk. Add the egg to the vegetable mixture and then stick the skillet in the oven.
Bake for about 13-15 minutes or until its set. Then broil on High about 5 inches from heat for 1-2 minutes, or until the top becomes golden.
Let it cool for a bit after taking it out, then slice like a pie and enjoy!!
