Easy weekday dinner

I'm always trying to come up with easy dinner ideas that use the ingredients we typically have in our house anyway. The dreaded question between Mike & me usually starts before noon while we're e-mailing each other at work... "What's for dinner tonight?" So, tonight's dinner was sparked by Mike mentioning the word "frittata" (I know, what normal guy just comes up with that idea out of the blue??)

So, I cut a potato into small cubes & boiled them. As that was cooking, I sauteed some onion & garlic & added the drained potatoes along with sun-dried tomatoes, salt & pepper & let that brown a bit. I wisked some eggs & skim milk & poured that into the pan & let it set up a bit & brown on the bottom. As that was going on, I added some leftover, low-fat spinach & feta sausages we grilled the night before, topped the concoction with cheese & transferred the pan to a 350 degree oven. That baked for about 10-15 minutes & finally I broiled it for about 3 minutes to finish it off. Then I covered the pan with foil, shut the oven off & we ate about an hour or so later when we had Cam settled. Below is a picture that really doesn't do it any justice as I assure you it was very good. And the best part is we both have leftovers for work tomorrow! Dinner? Done!
