WARNING !!!!!       HEALTH ALERT !!!!!     THIS RECIPE AND MEAL MIGHT ACTUALLY BE HEALTHY…THAT’S RIGHT,   IT MIGHT BE GOOD FOR YOU.   COMSUMING SAID MEAL MIGHT BE HABIT FORMING….. PLEASE CHECK WITH A QUALIFIED GLUTTON   PIG   BEFORE PROCEEDING……

OKAY,      So  lately I’ve been making alot of vegetarian , macrobiotic and Indian food.     This has added about 10 new spices to my arsenal.    There’s  alot of new tastes and aromas that most Americans are probly not familiar with.

SO recently I believe my new cooking   prowess   has driven my wife over the edge.   I began to get this impression when my lovely bride,   sweetly whispered in my ear,  ….”  CAN YOU MAKE SOME   DAMM   REEEEAL FOOOOD PLEEEEASE  !!!!!!!!!!  ”

Then I thought I heard  her  singing this song ,  with a strawberry Margarita in hand ,   on her way out the door to Mickey D’s

I used my home-made perogies  Fried them up in alittle butter and used them in place of the potatoes.

If you didn’t make any perogies then you can use the store bought kind. Follow directions on the bag.

So if you like STORE BOUGHT PIEROGI IN A BAG , then by all means follow THIS  recipe and use the STORE BOUGHT PIEROGIS IN A BAG !    in  place of my potatoes.

4 med potato  – sliced 1/4 inch thick

10 asparagus  – thick end cut off  – cut into 1 inch pieces

1 pkg leaf spinach – thawed –  squeezed – slightly warmed in frying pan to remove most of the water

1 large yellow onion – chopped

3 clove garlic – smashed, minced

8 large eggs

1/3 cup milk

2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp red pepper

2 tbsp chopped parsley

1 tsp salt

1cup Swiss cheese – shredded ( box grater)

heat oven to 400’middle rack

Splash of olive oil in 10 inch frying pan 1/4 cup water , potatoes ,  cover and cook on low until semi soft, remove cover and fry until slightly brown maybe alittle more oil. Remove from pan

Another splash of oil add onion , saute till soft, add garlic stir one min

Add asparagus and 1/2 cup water cover and steam till soft – about 5 min

Whiisk eggs, milk parsley, oregano, red pepper ,  salt  pepper,  add 1/2 Swiss cheese   and mix well,
