This frittata concept has been lurking in the back of my mind for months. I’ve just been waiting for sweet potatoes and bell peppers to come around again. I try to eat seasonally so it really pains me to pass by red bell peppers (my loves!) at the grocery store during the off-seasons, when those peppers are flown in all the way from Chile or Holland.
When I’m not too busy grumbling about self-imposed produce deprivation, I’ll admit that eating seasonally really is the way to go—I’m generally so busy getting my fill of cranberries in the winter that I don’t have time to miss blueberries, and I’m always scrambling to meet my butternut quota when spring rolls around, and oh, how I love those blood oranges in February that electrify dreary winter days. I appreciate them all the more thanks to their limited availability.
