I love eggs. And this post… is about eggs.
Earlier this week, I had to make a meal for one of my friends that just became a new mom for the third time. What to make, what to make? This thought crossed my mind all day the day before. What I decided…
I made quiche!
I used eggs from my father-in-laws chickens (which I really should have taken a picture of, because they are amazingly big, super healthy, and natural… so good), so that made these quiches EXTRA good.
Quiche a la Bebe Marc
(Makes 2 9-inch quiches)
Pie crust for 2 pies
3 ribs of celery, chopped
1 green pepper
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 cup milk
1 Tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp parsley
Pinch chili powder
1 Tbsp melted butter
Preheat your oven to 350F. Line 2 9-inch pie plates with pie dough. Sprinkle celery, onion, peppers and cheese over pie crust.
In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milks, flour, salt, pepper, parsley, chili powder and melted butter.
Whisk until combined.
Pour over vegetables and cheese in pie plate.
Bake quiches for 30-45 minutes (it really just depends on the oven), or until set.
I was super impressed with myself on this recipe. I wanted a vegetarian dish, but I didn’t want it to be lacking in flavour – and it wasn’t! It looked good, smelled good, and tasted great.
It must have been good, because my hubby ate over half of it!
*Note – you can substitute the coconut milk for regular milk or water.
Now to the 30 Day Challenge.
Day 1 – Your current relationship
Well, my current relationship has been my one and only, and will be my one and only. God willing. I have been married to my amazing hubby for almost 2 years now.
We got married in June 2010
And while that isn’t very long, we’ve known each other our whole lives, and have been ‘together’ for 7 years now. He is the love of my life. Yes, we snap at each other, and get on each others’ nerves. But more than that, we love each other, laugh together, cry together, talk, live…. And have an amazing little boy together.
We’ve been through a lot, and will go through a lot more. I know, though, that no matte what happens, we will stick it out. God is behind us, and will give us the strength we need to stay together and get through life together.
I love my hubby so much. He’s quirky, a great guy, funny, and so good at so many things.
I could say so much more than that, but this my relationship in a nutshell.
Now you know.
Day one of the 30 Day Challenge. Check.
What about you? How’s your current relationship? Do you enjoy eggs as much as me?
So, I came across a challenge on Tyler’s blog (which initially came from Elle’s blog). It’s called the 30 Day Challenge (pretty self-explanatory, no?). I’m going to attempt to do it. I don’t promise to do all 30 days consecutively, but I will try my best to do all 30. This way, you can get to know me better, and it’ll change things up a bit too. Hope you enjoy. And I’d love to hear from you – your thoughts, comments, and questions.
My next post will begin the challenge. 🙂
But for now, I’ll (finally) share my Easter with you. And my brother’s birthday cake.
First – the cake. I had asked my brother what kind of cake he wanted (mostly wondering what I should decorate…), but all he said was chocolate. He wasn’t very much help. I already knew that. Anyhow. I thought about it for awhile, and came up with something quite easy, but that fit. He has been set on watching all 9 seasons of X Files with my husband. So – the X Files logo it was.
Sides first, then the top.
Then to the logo, the edges… The blowing of the candles.
Now to Easter. First off, our Easter is a little bit different from a lot of people. We grew up without the Easter bunny. Instead, we focus on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4
3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures,
This is the reason we celebrate Easter. Jesus has risen. And we aren’t just saying this. We really believe that it’s true. Christ, our Saviour, reigns.
We also have a family dinner. Which means lots of food. I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that there is no end to food when it comes to my family. It is central to all of our gatherings. I love it. Mostly because, well, truth be told, I love food. I didn’t have a hand at much this year, as we were in the process of moving into our new house. But feast your eyes on what I feasted on.
As you can tell, I share my passion for baking with others in my family. I think it’s genetic. 🙂
Cael loved sitting with Papa at dessert time… Cookies for him.
I also made a cake on Good Friday for a bunch of people that came over to decorate Easter eggs. It was a really quick decorating job, but I thought it turned out pretty good.
My hubby got a hold of it after it had been cut into though…
So – I hope that you have a great weekend. I’ll get started on that 30 day challenge soon. Thanks for reading. And sorry my Easter post was so late. Better late than never??
What’re your Easter traditions?
