Growing… and quiche!

Janelle, 3.5 years, has had some quotable quotes lately… of course, many I forget, but today she said “Mommy all the babies in your belly become ADULTS!”. Yup, it’s true. One day they will be adults. Sigh.

For now, we enjoyed a great gardening morning (after unpacking 10 more boxes from our recent move!). Did some more planting – spinach, lettuce and dill from seeds, and a luscious potted sunflower! We turned the remaining grown spinach into pizza buns for lunch, and the remaining grown arugula into a scrumptious quiche – the gas oven here is the icing on the cake!

Quiche: crustless! Just mix 6 eggs with 1/4c milk and 2 TBSP sour cream/yogurt/ricotta cheese and then add salt, pepper to taste and 1/4 c chopped pepper, fresh herbs (1/4 c chives in this one), 1/2c greens, a clove of garlic, 1/2 c cheese – whip together, throw in greased pan at 350F et voila! Can also add broccoli in lieu of greens… or many other variations!

Here are the photos of the empty boxes… the kids played really well as I ripped through the contents and sorted as best I could. Helped that some contents were well-loved treasures of theirs!
