Quiche Me You Fool

Still working on the quiche I made on Sunday afternoon. I realize that I haven't really been listing what is in the fabulous photos I'm posting so here is today's menu:

  • Broccoli, tomato, onion and cheddar quiche
  • green grapes
  • corn on the cob
  • salad (romaine lettuce, carrots, bell peppers)
  • balsamic vinagrette

Here are the lovely quiches. I kind of crossbred these two recipes to get what I needed. The key to this whole endeavor was scoring these whole wheat ready-made pie crusts from Whole Foods. I watch too many cooking shows to know that making pie crust is a big freaking deal. And, if left to my own devices, I would make pie crust the Julia Childs way: pounds of ice cold lard and mountains of fluffy bleached flour. Why do I have a weight problem? Astonishing!

Oh, I must note the reasons I made two quiches. I guess the simple explanation is that one is for me and one is for my old man. He gets acid reflux from tomatoes so I made him a quiche with spinach and onion for his lunches. We are also having quiche for dinner a few nights this week while we finish up the fish stew. Just call us the Leftover Family.


  1. I am so jealous. I'm sure you already posted this, but where did you get your lunch box?? My mouth is watering at it's only 9am! Thanks for the great inspiration. Oh and nice job on your clean kitchen :)

  2. mmm yummy food. you've made me feel hungry. i love all your lunch box pictures i wish i have a lunch box like that.


  3. Hi Jenification! My clean kitchen? I guess I tricked you with the closely cropped photos. Believe me, beyond the borders of the picture lies chaos. I have been getting a lot of interest in my lunch kit. It's from a company called Laptop Lunch. You can get them online. I'm new to blogging so I need to figure out a way to make the folks at LL pay me for all the publicity I'm giving them. But, you can make a great lunch using plastic baggies or foil. It's all about the food :)

  4. I am a huge nutella fan so can't have any in my apartment. None at all.
