Shadows and a bit of a collection

I love shadows and these fascinated me when I walked the other morning, the Palm trees in particular left quite spectacular ones although the fence by the railway line was interesting too.
Then there is a bit of my other collections, a pair of old shoe or boot forms I found locally the other day, from the size children's, and then a tiny corner of the hall which is getting far too cluttered, this is a small part of the cloth doll collection.
I promised to give the recipes I made the other day, the cake is on my other blog here.
So here is the frittata
2 tbspn olive oil
2 medium zucchini trimmed and thinly sliced
7 eggs
1 cup sour cream
2 tbspn finely chopped fresh dill
1 x 220 gm pkt smoked salmon
Heat half the oil in a 20 cm (base beasured ) non stick frying pan over medium heat.
Add Zucchini and cook stirring for 5 minutes or until golden
Transfer to a paper towel lined plate
Wipe pan clean
Whisk eggs and 1/4 cup sour cream together. Season with salt and pepper, stir in zucchini mix and 1/2 the dill.
Heat remaining oil in pan over medium heat, Pour egg mix into pan.
Reduce heat to low and cook 6 -7 minutes or until set around the edges but runny in the centre.
Pre heat grill to medium. Place pan under grill and cook for 3 - 4 minutes or until golden brown and just set.
Combine remaining dill and sour cream in a small bowl, Cut frittata into wedges. Divide amongst serving plates top with salmon and sour cream with dill. Serve with salad.
Makes 4 generous serves or 6 as a starter.
Dont burn your handle under the grill. Can be pre cooked 2 hours before serving, then add the salmon and cream.

wow Penny, those shadows are fabulous, I like them all in a different way. That cloth doll collection is just lovely, so colourful. Have they come from your travels?
