Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk to combine. Melt butter in a small, 6-inch saute pan, add onions and cook on medium heat until they are soft, about 10 minutes.

Add tomato, basil, chicken, salt and pepper to the pan, just long enough to heat through. Taste the mixture and add more salt and pepper if needed. Remove from heat and gently mix with the eggs.

Wipe out the saute pan and add olive oil. Heat until the oil is smoking, roll the olive oil around so it coats the entire pan then add the egg mixture. Cook on medium heat for five minutes without stirring.  

Place into a 350℉ degree oven and let cook until the top is set.  Remove from oven and let the frittata rest of a couple minutes.

Run a knife around the edges of the pan and invert the frittata onto a dinner plate. Serve with a small green salad and fruit.

Geese flying in formation

The V formation itself is a thing of beauty.  I understand that on long journeys one person cannot be expected to carry the full weight and responsibility.  When it is shared, the burden is lighter, the investment is deeper, and there is a benefit to having a range of experience to draw upon.
