Breakfast for Dinner and my Prosciutto & Spinach Frittata

I have said this before but cooking was not my forte before becoming a stay at home mom.  Big J did most of the cooking in the house and he was damn good at it. I could cook basic things but I really never put any effort into it and certainly did not enjoy it as much as he did. Fast forward to our move to Dallas and my face first dive into full time mommy-hood and it was time for me to figure out life in the kitchen.  Over the past year and a half I can honestly say my cooking has improved and I truthfully enjoy meal planning for the family each week and coming up with new ideas.

Lately, we have been really big on having breakfast for dinner. We have gone from pancakes to breakfast tacos to my personal favorite, frittatas! This is a fantastic and super easy recipe to throw together really quickly after a busy day. This one took a little trial and error on my part but this one has really become a huge hit in our house. Whether we eat this on Sunday mornings with a fresh cup of coffee or a weekday evening with a side salad, I think you will enjoy! Little J is a big fan of this and it’s a sneaky way to get him to eat some protein and vegetables on the sly.
