Foodie Friday - Spinach & Scape* Frittata

 Today's offering from Denise & Yvonne of Cooking for Real: Yum! (PS.. happen to be in Chester County, PA? See D & Y at the Anselma Farmer and Artisan's Market, every Thursday through Thanksgiving, from 2-7)

 *And what is a 'scape' you ask? Scapes are the curly tops of the garlic plant that are cut back at this time of year to increase growth in the bulb.  Elegant looking, aren't they?
