Busy Eating Frittatas

Hi! Hello! Happy Friday!

I disappeared again for a bit, but here’s a frittata:

Veggie Frittata

You’re welcome.

Ok, bye!

Just kidding.

Here it is again!

Veggie Frittata

POW!  <— that just felt appropriate.

What can I say, I’ve just been busy eating frittatas.  You’ll need to make this frittata to fully understand, and don’t you worry, I’ll include an easy recipe at the end of this post.

BUT FIRST!  We have a  few things to catch up on!

  • I am SO glad I’m not the only one who hate-watches shows.  I talked about this in my last post, but basically, I define ‘hate-watching’ as the act of  compulsively watching a show even when it’s so horrible that it makes you cringe.  Currently, I am hate-watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.  If you love this show, I’m sorry in advance for all the horrible things I have to say about it. It literally makes me want to pick up my TV and throw it off the balcony.  I already broke one of our TVs when I dropped my bike on it (that’s a story for another blog post), so I’m really hoping I can control my rage this time. I am about half-way through season two and I really can’t explain how I’ve gotten this far. It makes me mad just to think about it. I think someone needs to cut me off.
  • On the complete opposite side of hate-watching, however, I am LOVE-WATCHING Game of Thrones.  Anyone else? I find that it is so easy to accidentally see spoilers about this show on the internet so that’s all I’m going to say about it.  I will say, though, if you don’t like this show, I don’t think we can be friends.



Farmers’ Market Lettuce Mix with Celery, Avocado, Feta, and Roasted Rosemary Chickpeas (400 degree oven, chickpeas coated in olive oil, rosemary, salt, pepper, bake for 30 minutes- tada!) Drizzled with balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and olive oil.

BACK TO LIFE UPDATES! More specifically, fitness updates!

  • I went to spin class THREE TIMES this week.  During my last class I finally wore my shoes from my road cycling days and it really made a difference.  I definitely recommend cycling shoes for both road biking and spin class.  Here is a great article on the pros and cons of cycling shoes.
  • My Physical Therapist has been using  Dry Needling on my hip, and it’s worked like a charm. My hip feels almost 100% better.
  • One of my favorite spin instructors is also a personal trainer. When I mentioned that I’m trying to get into the best shape possible for my wedding in October (my first dress fitting is in July eeeeeee!!!), she had me schedule a free training consultation.  I’m going to continue going to spinning three times a week and hopefully throw in some more strength training (I’m only doing yoga now- and OMG the planks and chaturangas!)

And now, for some Strawberry-Banana Oats…

Strawberry Banana Oats

In the bowl: 1 cup water, 1/2 cup old fashioned oats, 1 sliced banana, cinnamon, shredded unsweetened coconut, topped with fresh, local strawberries, PB and more coconut.


  • So I already mentioned that my first dress fitting is in July! I’ll be going up to New York for a few weeks to visit friends and family, attend my BRIDAL SHOWER, and have two dress fittings.
  • My bridesmaids are coming down to Asheville in two weeks for a girl’s weekend and I am SO EXCITED. We’re having our hair and makeup trials at Adorn Salon in downtown Asheville and we will likely be there for three hours but it’s ok because they have a cute bridal suite for us to hang out in and there will be MIMOSAS.
  • We just finished finalizing our invites with my best friend Dara (my matron of honor), who is a very talented graphic designer.  I really love what she came up with and I’m so excited for our friends and family to receive them! I’m sending the files to the printer today so I anticipate my hand falling off from addressing envelopes sometime next week.
  • I met with a florist last week and OMG flowers are expensive. I’d heard this before but it’s one of those things that I really didn’t acknowledge until I experienced it firsthand.  Weddings are just expensive, man.
  • I spent this morning updating our wedding website with things to do in Asheville. I started on the page of places to eat, but that’s going to take me a bit longer since I am in love with almost every restaurant in Asheville.

Ok, enough of that, here’s the frittata recipe I promised you!

Asparagus & Mushroom Frittata

Serves 8 (or 4, depending how hungry you are!)


  • 1-2 TBSP Butter
  • 1 Yellow Onion, Chopped
  • 1 Bunch of Asparagus, Chopped
  • 1 Cup of Cremini Mushrooms, Chopped
  • 8 Eggs
  • 1 TBSP Whole Milk
  • 1/4 TSP Salt
  • 1/8 TSP Pepper
  • 1-2 Cups of Spinach, chopped
  • 1/2-1 Cup Feta Cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 Degrees
  2. Heat butter in a large, oven-safe frying pan over medium heat, add onion, asparagus and mushrooms, cook until tender, 5-10 minutes
  3. While veggies are cooking, whisk together eggs, whole milk, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Stir in greens and feta cheese
  4. Pour egg mixture over veggies in frying pan and let cook until eggs are set, around 5 minutes
  5. Transfer pan to oven and bake for 10 minutes, or until top is completely cooked through
  6. Remove from oven and let cool 1-2 minutes before sliding the frittata onto a plate
  7. Cut into 8 pieces, like a pizza, and enjoy with toast and fresh fruit on the side

There you have it! Get busy eating frittatas with me! They’re delicious!

Now I’m running out the door to have lunch with Jeff downtown. Super excited to meet Farrah and Julie for lunch next week! Blogger dates are so much fun!

What have you been up to?

Have a great weekend! <3

My Weekend in iPhone Photos

Oh Hey! Happy May!


I was away from the blog a bit last week because:

  1. I realized that the wedding is nearly five months away and there were a few things on our to-do list that I’d been neglecting, such as registering, finding a florist and deciding on an invite design. Happy to say we got a lot accomplished and I successfully registered for 900 KitchenAid mixers because I couldn’t decide what color I wanted.
  2. I needed to hate-watch the entire fifth season of Girls in two nights. Does anyone else love and hate this show at the same time?

Anyway, I owe you guys some GIVEAWAY WINNERS so let’s get on that, shall we?

The winner of a sample pack of Smiling Hara Tempeh and Hempeh is Annamarie V.

The two runners-up, who will each receive coupons to use in the Smiling Hara store and stickers, are Laura and Allison.

Congratulations, ladies! Please shoot me an email at rebecca@roseyrebecca.com with your contact info.  You have until midnight tomorrow (May 3) to get in touch with me.  If I don’t hear from you, I will pick another winner on Wednesday, May 4.

Filo Latte

So I don’t know about you guys, but I had a pretty awesome weekend.  It started on Friday (yes, weekends start on Friday) with a coffee date at Filo with Gary of AskAsheville and Jenny and Bryan of HeartisTree Studios.

Actually, let’s back up, my weekend actually started with dress shopping, because duh.

Dress Shopping at Minx Boutique

I posted this pic on Instagram and Facebook over the weekend, but for those of who haven’t seen it, tada! In my quest to find a dress to wear to my bridal shower in July I wandered into Minx Boutique on Lexington Ave in downtown Asheville.  The ladies working there were incredibly helpful and I could have kissed the one who suggested this dress for me.  I don’t know that I’ll wear it to my shower, but I can definitely see wearing it all summer long! So cute!

After trying on 5 million dresses, I was definitely ready for an iced latte, so I headed over to Filo.  Jenny and I were intrigued by the vegan and vegetarian options so we ordered spanakopita and a hummus plate to snack on.

Filo Hummus Plate

Yum! I could have eaten five more spanakopita. I also bought a huge chocolate walnut brownie to share with Jeff later that night.

We hung out at for a bit and then it was off to Whole Foods to stand in their refrigerated beer section for 10 minutes because it was hot out and I like beer.

Don’t judge.

Avocados were on a 5 for $5 sale and I bought all of them.

I also contemplated setting my throat on fire with this Scorpion Cheddar Cheese

Scorpion Cheddar

Skin and eye irritation, y’all.

Scorpion Cheddar

Nope. Nope. Nope.

Then it was home to make burritos with slow cooker refried beans and tons of guac. A perfect Friday night dinner if you ask me.

On Saturday, I had Indian for breakfast.  I slept until noon. I haven’t done that in YEARS. Too much dress shopping and scorpion cheddar, I guess.  Five minutes after I woke up, Jeff called me and asked me to meet him and our friend Susan at Mela for lunch.  So off I went and it was delicious.

We went to three outdoor stores on Saturday.  THREE. Then two on Sunday. That’s FIVE in one weekend. Jeff was looking for some very specific camping gear and finally found it at REI on Sunday.

Before that, we took a beautiful drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

And ended up in Waynesville, NC.

Where we ate lunch and then chilled with a random cat at Panacea Coffee Company.

Our beautiful weekend ended with homemade pizza and Game of Thrones. What more could you ask for?


The end.

Have a wonderful Monday! <3
