There is a huge event coming up. Barbara at Winos and Foodies is hosting her second annual LiveSTRONG Day~ A Taste of Yellow. LiveSTRONG Day is the Lance Armstrong Foundation's one-day initiative to raise awareness and funds for the cancer fight. LIVESTRONG Day 2008 will occur on Tuesday, May 13.
Last year I was proud to be a part of this event and posted my Limoncello Cheesecake. I had commented that if one little blog could make a difference... We all can make a difference! 148 other bloggers also joined in the event in 2007. We are excited to see who participates in 2008.
This year I am living southern with a Taste of Yellow. How about an Italian fritatta version of a squash casserole?
Sweet Squash Fritatta
4 yellow squash
1 sweet onion
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp lemon juice
6 ritz crackers, crushed
1/2 cup muenster cheese
1/4 cup fresh Parmesan
1 Tbs butter
Salt & Pepper
Thinly slice the yellow squash and onions. Heat olive oil in a heavy skillet or omelet pan. Brown onion and squash lightly. Dot with one tablespoon of butter and lemon juice. Combine eggs, grated cheeses, and crushed crackers. When the butter is bubbly pour in the eggs. Lower the heat and cook until almost set. Place the pan under a broiler and cook the remaining 2-4 minutes until firm.
Now the tricky part... cover the skillet with a plate. Hold your mouth just right and flip the plate and skillet together. The fritatta will fall out easily onto the plate.
Serve warm, with more cheese on top if desired.
Our family has been touched by cancer, as many of you have. This is an event that can make a difference. You still have time to enter your taste of yellow!
LiveSTRONG with a taste of Yellow has been accepted as an official LiveSTRONG Day event.
