Mini Quiche makes me SMILE!
Today was my first day off in 12 days and I was in need of major retail therapy, some time in the kitchen and a good movie. Thankfully a shopping trip to Target yielded a tube of Tom's of Main Toothpaste, an awesome mini pie pan from Wilton and a neon pink bangle bracelet.
Yesterday was a grueling day at work and I was close to a breaking point....and that is just not right! Don't worry, it is very hard to actually break me....LOL. Nothing a good glass of wine and a few choice words (privately) couldn't cure.
The good news is that my day off was amazing. I got to facetime with the Hubby (he is in Bangkok on a Food Network show.) I baked some amazing bacon, egg, mushroom and cheese quiches in my new mini pie pan and I found Rear Window on my DVR. Oh and Mad Men premiers tonight... woo hoo.
As the sun goes down, I am back to happy camper. All in all ~ I am reminded everyday about what REALLY matters and I am glad that I can distinguish the difference.
BTW the Quiche was yummy.
XO and Smiles,
I made 3 pies since the hubby is gone.
For three pies: (double for six pies)
1 ready made pie crust
3/4 cup of equally mixed milk and 1/2 and 1/2
Palm-full of herbs: basil, oregano and parsley
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used cheddar)
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 cups chopped veggies
4 small strips of bacon - cooked and crumbled
The new pan! Loved it!
I use store bought pie crust rolled onto a floured counter.
If you make six pies you will need 2 pie crusts.
I cut 5" circles with kitchen scissors.
I pressed them into the pie pan. No greasing needed.
I whipped the eggs, milk and herbs.
Then I added the chopped veggies, cheese and crumbled bacon.
I poured the mix into the pie crusts and topped with a carved pie crust leaf.
I baked at 350 Fahrenheit for 40 min. Start checking for doneness at 25 min.
Allow the pies to cool in the pan for 15 and then transfer to a rack.
I used a mini spatula to lift the pies from the pan.
It was fantastic.
I tucked the other two cooled pies in the fridge for the next few days.
I have never frozen one.....might give that a test.
