You know what you get when you make too many Ricotta Fritters the night before?

A really great lunch. 😉


I had two Ricotta Fritters left over from last night’s meal. Last night they made a great salad addition and today they were a great toast topper.


I topped a ‘bread butt’ (hehe) with some homemade cranberry sauce (made a quick batch last night before bed), spinach, two ricotta fritters, and pecans.


‘Twas an excellent holiday themed meal. I <3 cranberry sauce!

On the side some broccoli for a little veg.


Morning snack of nuts. 🙂


I’m LOVING this cold weather! I hope it’s like this on Christmas. 🙂

Don’t know if I could handle the fritters (ricotta’s not my thing) but broccoli and cranberry sauce? Yes please!

I used to have fritters all the time when I was a kid! Time to bring them back I think…! 😛

You should come here! It was only 9 degrees when we took the kids to school this morning. I think I’ll take your “cold” over my cold right now. I love cranberry sauce too. And the butt!

I don’t like the bread butts, but I love saying butt, so I announce it when I make Ben a sandwich with that piece.

I’m so weird about broccoli. I’ll only eat it if its got the tree tops. NOT a trunk fan.

I am hoping for colder weather on Christmas. It’s supposed to be almost 80 in a few days! 🙁

I love bread butts when they’re thick and chewy! I don’t like when they’re puny compared to regular slices.

14 Amy at TheSceneFromMe December 7, 2010 at 3:36 pm

Wow, ricotta fritters! Never heard of them but I’d like to make your recipe.
I always go for the end of the bread loaves, love the hardness of them.
And I just want it to snow on Christmas!

I love cranberry sauce too. Why do I only make it around Thanksgiving time? Must make it more often.

Mmmm, ricotta fritters sound really good, especially with homemade cranberry sauce!

Girl, if you want some cold weather, you need to travel north. PA is having FREEZING weather. I can’t stand it, let’s trade places, like in the movie, The Holiday! 🙂

22 Ffion December 7, 2010 at 8:36 pm

Ricotta Fritters sound completely amazing.

I’m not a huge fan of cold weather, or Winter in general! I need to emigrate somewhere warmer! (Maybe Florida 😉 ) I guess I should count myself lucky that we don’t have any snow in my area like the rest of the UK does!

I was just wondering…do you think you might consider doing a post on marathons in general? Like how you decided on a training plan, what you expected vs reality, how much it affected your life, what you would recommend for first timers, etc. I also am really curious to know your opinion on what specifically helped you reduce your time with each marathon (I know each one wasn’t a PR, but you gradually reduced your times overall)…like was it more speedwork? A different type of plan? etc. I would love to know more of your “how-to’s” of marathoning

Hi D,

I’m working on it right now. Those posts take some time to write, but I hope to have one up in the next week. Here are some examples of ones I’ve done in the past in the mean time. 🙂
