1st post!

Chris and I made a quiche tonight.

there is a point of contention between us as far as dinner is concerned. I want to make a menu so that we know ahead of time what we are having during the week and can plan for it. you know, in the sense that we can buy proper ingredients and set aside enough preparation time for things. well, this week I put my foot down. we have two, maybe three, nights of eating at home this week, so we decided upon two meals and went grocery shopping with them in mind.

one of the meals we decided on was a quiche. we couldn't agree on any of the recipes that I found, so we decided to create our own. about.com says that a quiche is basically 4 eggs and 1 cup of milk, so we just went from there. this is what we came up with. let me tell you, it is pretty awesome. Chris ate, like, half of it.

my mum was over a little while ago. we fed some of it to her and she thought it was great - and she doesn't even like pie crust. I don't think she was humoring us, she seemed to genuinely enjoy it. we sent some more home for my dad, hopefully he will also have great things to say about it.

  1. I love that your first post is about quiche and trying to find a compromise in regards to groceries and meal planning. I totally remember that first point in my relationship with my husband. I was like, "why do you care, it's not like you're really going to be cooking much anyway." :)
    But it's what we do, isn't it? And how we learn about one another.
    Thanks for linking up with me! I can't wait to read more!
