Vegetable Frittata; and a Hoo-rag?

I just love these cute little individual casserole dishes.

Obviously, so do the French as they are everywhere, along with little cookbooks with recipes for the ‘cocottes’.

Frittata de Légumes

Total time: 45 minutes 


  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup butternut squash, finely chopped

Vegetable Frittata

  • Whisk eggs.

  • Bake at 375F (180C) for 25 minutes.

Personally, I always have hot chocolate and Christmas cookies for breakfast on Christmas morning….

But one could do all the prep work ahead of time, and bake these in the morning for a healthy, festive breakfast.

We had them for a first course…..

I’ll stick with my Christmas cookies for breakfast – I put oatmeal in one of them!

I have always had a weak spot for ‘stuff’ for my head.

Barrettes, combs, headbands, ties, scrunchies, assorted do-hickeys that I never could figure out but were amazing when they demonstrated them at the fair.

Big hats, little hats, knit hats, scarves, scarves that one could wear like a hat.

Fortunately, most of this paraphanelia is inexpensive – I cannot begin to count how many things I have bought, only to put in a drawer, not use for a few years, then toss out or give away.

So…. When I got an email asking me if I wanted to test-drive a Hoo-rag I immediately said ‘Sure!’

So…. What’s a Hoo-rag?


It’s billed as ‘The better bandana’.

Again, I couldn’t reisist.

I wear a bandana all summer. 

It keeps my hair out of my eyes when I’m bent over, weeding, planting and general gardening. 

It keeps the crud out of my hair when I’m mowing, triming and strimming.

I could use a better bandana.

My Hoo-rag came in the post the other day.

It’s a strange looking thing and I hadn’t a clue what to do with it.

There were pictures, but no instructions.

So I googled it.

Not much instructional info on their site, but I found a great You-Tube video that explained it very nicely.

I watched; I played.

I love my Hoo-rag.

  1. Do they do a woolly version for winter I wonder and maybe they could corner the French market with a Voo-rag or a Tu-rag – excuse my silliness, it’s been a long hot day that started with a champagne breakfast !!

  2. Perfect for Christmas morning~lite and wholesome! Love the squash in there!
    Hoo-rags: When we ride our motorcycles, we put these on underneath our helmets. Keeps hair and sweat from helmets. I have always called mine a dew-rag.Learn something new everyday!

  3. Zoomie, that’s my blue ‘rag… has to be blue LOL
    Val, it’s a good frittata – but not as good as Christmas cookies!
    manningroad, champagne breakfast…. I want that! I think a tu-rag….
    Penny, and to you…. Can’t wait for garden season so I can do it justice.
