Last night was enlightening to say the least. Anywho, I was going to get my run in today before class but decided I would wait till after and sleep in. Waking up at 6 after falling asleep at midnight, is not okay with this girl.
But that gave me time to make a Pineapple Waffe! I had bought a can of crushed pineapple from the grocery store because I missed the little guys. Everyday back in middle and high school instead of chips my mom would pack me pineapple. Ha. I hadn’t had it in a while so I knew there would be some use for it in my cooking life.
I wish you could see the pineapple ah. But believe me it is in there and added a nice surprise when it hit my mouth.
Guess who came over today? We finally were able to make our quiches! They are adorable. (PS: Yes, Caitlin is wearing her marathon shirt)
Ingredients (makes 6 servings)
6-oz fresh baby spinach
2 large eggs
1/2 cup egg beaters (liquid substitute)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
pinch cayenne pepper
1 1/3 cups non fat milk
1/2 cup feta cheese
Preheat oven to 400F.
Lightly grease a 10-inch quiche/tart pan (or a pie plate)
In a medium frying pan, cook diced onion with a bit of vegetable oil (or cooking spray) over medium-high heat until translucent and tender. Add in fresh spinach and cook until just wilted. Set aside to cool for a few minutes
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk in milk, then stir in spinach-onion mixture.
Pour quiche base into prepared pan. Top with feta cheese.
Bake for 25 minutes, or until center is set and the outside edge is golden brown.
Let set for 5 minutes, then slice and serve.
In the meantime, since I have a grand total of plus or minus 5 things on my recipe list that aren’t breakfasty, you should go head over to Chucks. He had a productive Sunday and updated his blog while I layed in bed and watched Americas Next Top Model. I think I won that battle…
And finally Triple Tangent Tuesday. I’m going to go with 3 Things that I love about myself.
1. I’m positive 99% of the time. I mean sure we all have rough days and negative days, but I tend to have a more positive outlook on life.
2. I’m so socially awkward and can get away with pretty much anything. Over Halloween people asked how the hell I came up with being a pumpkin and all I said was I’m Hollie Heimer and that’s what I do. Confidence is key and if you don’t have it in yourself no one else will for you.
3. The mole on my lip. Yes, I have a freckle on my lip and no it’s not a chocolate stain ha. But I love it and no dermatologist (and dentist actually too) is going to tell me it I need to get it removed.
And thus I’ll leave you with the LOLcat of the day because I may or may not subscribed to the LOLcat blog.
Question for you:
1. Quiche YAY or NAY?
2. How much sleep do you need on the regular?
For me, it is at least 8 hours of sleep. I do not function well on less.
