Chicken and Dumplings...Comfort Food For Hubby

Hubby isn't well.  The boys gave it to me and then to him.  He hasn't been sick in years and truly thinks he is invincible.  No germs will touch me!  Uh Huh!  They finally caught up with him and while he is sick, has a fever and all the other yucks...he keeps going.  I wanted to make him something to comfort him and the first food that entered my mind was Chicken and Dumplings.  I love them!  He loves them!  We all love them!  Well, maybe not my picky one(s), but that's just a matter of time.  If you, or someone dear to you, is in need of some down home comfort food, this is it.  Enjoy the feeling!

Sloppy Joe Hoagies

I didn't know what I wanted to fix for supper tonight until I watched Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman.  Don't you just love her?  I do!  She made sloppy joes.  I have been meaning to make them for a while now and tonight seemed like a great time!  These are super simple and easy to make.  If you make your's like your Mama did, they probably taste about the same.  This is a basic recipe.  Feel free to grate or dice other veggies in also.  I was going to add a tomato that looked lonely on my counter but forgot about it while I was getting out some fall decorations.  It's a great way to sneak them in without being caught.  ~smile~  I put the sloppy joe mixture in a hoagie roll, it was actually a potato roll because that is what I had,  so it would be easier for my boys to eat.   Most of it actually made it to their hungry little mouths instead of on the plate.  Enjoy!

Stained Glass Frittata

I made this for hubby and I the other day for brunch.  Looking around in the fridge I found some veggies that I needed to use, I started to use the leftover chicken from the night before but decided I would just use veggies instead.  After posting pictures of this on facebook, a friend on my page, Susan J. Vosmik, suggested I name it Stained Glass Frittata.  It does look like stained glass with all the beautiful colors.  ~smiles~  Really easy to make and very delicious!  Enjoy!  <3 and hugs!

Stained Glass Frittata
Makes 2 large servings if nothing else is served.
4 to 6 smaller slices  

6 eggs, beaten
splash, heavy cream
1 teaspoon margarine 
2 each red, yellow and orange mini peppers, torn into pieces or chopped
4 ounces fresh mushrooms, chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
3-4 handfuls of fresh spinach, torn into pieces...I leave the stems on
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon freshly ground garlic and sea salt
pepper to taste
cheddar and parmesan cheese freshly grated, to sprinkle on top of frittata
olive oil spray

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray olive oil in a 6" ovenproof pan.  I used cast iron.

Saute mushrooms, onions and peppers until softened.
Season with dried thyme leaves, garlic/sea salt and pepper while cooking.
Add margarine, stirring to be certain nothing is sticking to bottom of pan.


                             
A little steamy and blurry but you get the picture.  HAHAHA sorry about that!
Add spinach.

Cook until wilted.

Beat eggs and add a splash of heavy cream. 
Add to pan and stir around..you don't want all the spinach on one side.  ~smile~

Cook in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes,  or until eggs are set at 350 degrees.  Turn pan around halfway through.

Sprinkle cheeses over frittata when it comes out of the oven.

Enjoy!  <3 and hugs!
