145.0…Leek, Potato & Gruyere Frittata

Every year I host a Stella & Dot jewelry party.  My friends come over and we shop and eat delicious things. Every year I make a new frittata recipe. Last year was the Smoked Salmon Frittata and I've made the Potato & Boursin Frittata a couple of times. The frittata I made today, I made once a long time ago and felt it was time to bring it back!

Wednesday night I had to attend an event at the school so I had a limited time for dinner. I had leftover fettucine and marinara in the fridge so that was dinner.
