We served these mini frittatas with a sweet vegetable rice soup and snow peas with carrots. This is a great recipe to make with a group of kids as there's enough eggs for everyone to crack one.
6 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup grated zucchini
1/4 cup milk
several pinches of salt
2 tsp coconut oil to grease pan
Oil the muffin pan
mix eggs using an egg beater
or just a simple whisk will do!
add cheese and zucchini
Pour egg mixture into a small pitcher and pour into prepared muffin pan
Bake the muffins at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.
Enjoy with your friends!
These muffins are great re-heated in the microwave or fired up with a little butter.
On Tuesday we made raised salt paintings:
Draw a design with glue. black paper is great as the bright colors show up really well.
Sprinkle salt on top of the glue.
Shake off excess salt and save it for later projects on a paper plate.
Add 4 drops off food coloring to 1 TBS water. Using an eye dropper put a small amount of liquid on top of the salty glue - watch the color race along the glue!
The kids made lots of great sound effects as the colors spread!
This activity, like many of our art explorations is more about the process than the finished product as the color doesn't stick to the salt for long, but it sure is fun to make!
