Culinary Recycling: Going Green on Friday Night

I wanted to be green today in two ways. Have my daily dose of vegetables., and do something for the environment. Well , remember those Broccoli that I cooked on April 18?. They were still sitting my my fridge so I decided to use them creatively.

Culinary recycling was the theme today. Indeed a double dose. That third of a loaf of Olive Bread from Arthur avenue? Well it made its way into the dish as well.

Cassata di Broccoli di rape
The term  usually indicates a rich stuffed cheesecake made in Sicily.  Well. I decided to call this kind of frittata a "Cassata" given that it is filled.  The nice thing about this dish , is that the bread slices are inside the dish. Less work. Great taste.

Egg Whites
Stale Italian Olive Bread
Chili Peppers

Saving  the planet .one dish at a time.

Longer days than usual, and lots of New York Metro pressure than I would like on a daily basis. So,  with the weatherman telling me that we would have some fairly nice outlooks for this weekend,  I decided to spend less time playing with my computers.

But my highlight for the day  was for me and my Queen to head down to Chinatown in NYC.  Our plans: do some food shopping , correction some "window" food shopping and course,  just take in as much we could of the Chinatown scene. Given that Little Italy is also right next door to Chinatown, we would stop there too. If you do not know, Manhattan's Chinatown  nowadays contently fuses with it's Italian neighbors.  Great combo, isn't it ? I sure do think so.

The plan worked out. So do read on.
