    Leek and Asparagus Quiche:
    1 TBS olive oil, 1 cup thinly sliced leeks, 2 cups asparagus, sliced into 1/2" rounds, 1 pie crust, 1 1/4 c whole milk, 1 c heavy cream, 6 large eggs, 1 tsp salt, pinch of nutmeg, 1 cup cheese (gruyere is what I used but I think cheddar would work fine)

    Saute leeks in olive oil for 3 min, add asparagus for another 3 min. Set aside

    In a large bowl, whisk together milk, cream, eggs, salt and nutmeg. Whisk in 1/2 cup of cheese.

    pour vegetables in the pie crust in 9" round, then pour egg mixture over the veggies, top with remaining cheese and pepper.

    Bake 45-60 minutes, Rest for an hour before serving

    I think you could lighten up the recipe with lower fat milk, and less cheese but I haven't tried. You will probably have a little egg mixture left over the original recipe calls for a 10" pie pan.

    Ladies - no real recipe for the rosemary parm chicken - I am just following the directions on the back of the Kraft Fresh Take package. I think I can handle this one!

    Oxy - I picked up some asparagus at HT today so we will have that with the chicken on Wednesday instead of broccoli. My 10 year old told me today that her favorite vegetable is roasted asparagus! So awesome!

    Thanks to all of you for sharing your menus!

    Foodgilr - I really need to make a quiche.
    Thanks for the reminder.

    ctya - congratulations on meeting the $5 goal! It just gets easier - I promise!

    eje - Happy Anniversary!!
