Do you ever have days where it feels like you are cooking the same ol’ things all the time but you want something easy… EASY…but satisfying but yet different than the “regulars”. That’s where I was a few days ago. SOOO I made a wonderful, satisfying quiche.

1 ready-made Pillsbury pie crust (found in the dairy/cold section)
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup chopped sweet onions
1/3 cup chopped green peppers
1 cup to 1-1/2 cups cheddar cheese (we like sharp cheddar)
1 can drained mushrooms
1 large handful washed fresh spinach leaves
a bit of olive oil for a saute
salt and pepper to taste
Unroll the pie crust and lay and pat in the bottom of the pie pan, working up the sides.
Bake the pie crust at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes to slightly cook the crust before adding the egg mixture. It keeps the crust from becoming soggy.
In a bowl mix with a wire whisk: 8 eggs, ¼ cup milk, salt and pepper to taste, and the cheddar cheese (we like sharp cheddar).
Then saute: 1/3 cup sweet onions, 1/3 cup green peppers, a handful of fresh spinach leaves, and a drained can of mushrooms all in a bit of olive oil.
Saute until the onions and green peppers are slightly limp and then add the veggies to the egg mixture.
Mix enough to mix the veggies well into the egg mixture and then poured it all into the pie crusy.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 to 40 minutes. The quiche is done when the center is set. I also tested it with a toothpick until it came out clean.
Optional, you can add more cheddar cheese on top the last 5 minutes.
I served it with crispy cinnamon toast and a chopped salad…Yummy and oh so good!

Our love story that began in 1974, a love story that still continues! It grew to include 3 children, a son-in-law and 6 grand children. We are thankful each and every day for the blessings we have experienced. A life we relish, we have grown through it’s hardships, and times of pain, and seek the sweetness of life. We love our children, our grandchildren, laughter, long walks, chatting over coffee, breakfast out, early mornings, sunrises and sunsets, roaring camp fires, traveling, board games and cards over much laughter and snackies, watching movies, remodeling, working in the yard, sitting on the deck sipping fresh brewed ice tea, with slices of lemon. We love laughter, sarcasm, jokes, politics, learning, reading. Always pursuing and seeking, spiritual truth, knowledge, and growth through Christ.
