Happy Friday, loves!
Welp, we’ve made it through yet another week…
Which is apparently the only way I know how! 😉
Like so many other food bloggers out there, I’m a little…how can I put this nicely?
But I’m not alone….oh no.
If you’re a class-A insider (ie: blogger, blog reader, or otherwise stalker), you probably see so much “strange” from this blog to that blog that by now, you’ve pretty much become oblivious* to it all…
*That’s when we know we’ve really got you hooked!
But for all the “normal” people out there (ie: co-workers, classmates, your mom and dad…that is, IF you can actually consider your parents to be normal), most of the things we deem to be “drool-worthy” or “foodgasmic” tend to raise a few eyebrows.
Not everyone can claim membership to the Weird Foodie Club. 😉
So when I found out a couple of days ago that my girl Laura*, had come up with a way for us to all get together and
point at each other’s food share our strange BUT GOOD recipes**, I knew I had to be a part of it!
*From here on, known as Queen of the Strange from the land of Blogwordia…
**Also know as the Strange But Good link up!
Is anyone else out there cheering?!?!
No, just me? Oh, well that’s just embarrassing!
Err, ok…where was I?
Oh right…FOOD! Or more precisely, STRANGE FOOD!
When I started thinking about what I could make to share for this link up, it was a little harder than I thought. You see, most of my #strangebutgood combos tend to be just a random bowl of sh- THINGS covered in some sort of condiment*.
*Mustard of course ranking highest on that list!
Then, after the most amazing salad concoction the other night of steamed kale, quinoa, edamame, and fresh figs, I had an epiphany…
An Edamame & Fig Frittata!
Only, that wasn’t enough…it was missing something. Plus, it needed a cute name. So I made a special trip to the store…for leeks, because I had something clever in mind…
E.L.F on a
Shelf Pelf? Plate!
I was fresh out of elves so snowmen will have to do, but seriously, how FUN is that?! 😉
*Omg, I swear I’m not high! Well, unless you count the fumes I inhaled from the balsamic glaze that just HAD to be made and drizzled overtop of this wonderful creation…seriously, do NOT put your face over the pot…it’s lethal!
