    jdouglas-Thanks! I'll look for you on pinterest!

    Nakabi and RFB, thanks so much for your quiche help! :) RFB, I pinned your recipe and was delighted to find your pinterest boards, all of which, of course, I am now following! I'm AKA CS.

    jdouglas- Here are a few recipes from my B&B days w/a few updates. I always use the deep dish frozen, mainly because I usually make so many at once! The first is Shrimp Quiche and the other is probably my favorite- Zucchini Dill (this one is a crustless one, but if you want to add a crust, use the same directions as the shrimp quiche) Good luck, and if you have problems, let me know!! And you can easily sub out ingredients to things you like.

    RFB-you're welkom :)
    Faye-Yes you really should!
    JDouglas-I do make them in a foil pie pan, but I take them out of the pan and wrap them in indivual pieces to freeze. That way I can take out however many pieces I want. I have to have lots of cheese as well!!! I use harvarti, mozzerella, and colby in mine. I don'thave a recipe (are you surprised? lol), but email me and I'll give you details how to make the crust and quiche.

    RFB and Nakabi, I have rarely made a quiche that hasn't turned out, literally, like a hot mess. It's just one of those things I can't cook. I like it to have lots of cheddar, bacon, and broccoli. Can you suggest a recipe for me please including crust details?

    Nakabi, do you make your quiches in a foil pie pan when you are going to freeze them?

    Everyone's menus sound delicious! :) We had a beef roast for Christmas with minimal leftovers, so I think I'm going to slice it really thin and turn it into a steak salad with garlic toast on the side. Double chocolate mousse cake (leftover) for dessert.

    Nakabi - I may just batch cook some the next time a good egg sale rolls around. Been a while since I made a quiche.

    nakabi- great tip on freezing, for all the thousands... and thousands (lol!) of quiches I've made in my life, I've never tried that. Nice to hear they still come out great :-)

    Faye-the quiche wasn't on my weekly menu earlier this week, but that's the beauty of plans..they can be changed :) You ought to make a quiche sometime! Whenever I make it, I make 2 or 3 of them and freeze them. Great breakfast items for Sunday mornings before church!

    nakabi - I was just thinking yesterday that it is time for a spinach mushroom quiche!

    Tonight we are having Italian slow cooker chicken on a bed of egg noodles with a cream sauce. Side of steamed carrots.

    A few friends coming over and they requested homemade potato soup topped w/bacon and chives, spinach/mushroom quiche, garden salad. I'll stop at Ingles and pick up a couple loaves of baguettes and that should round the meal off. All the items for the menu were on sale and the meal costs less than $2/person. Sooo much cheaper (and tastier) than eating out! My husband made a blackberry cobbler with some blackberries we picked this summer and we will have it with some ice-creme. Simple yet delicious!
