quiche etc.

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

I mentioned the chicken taco quiche in my mpm post yesterday, well I made it last night and it was a HIT. I love when a recipe is just really really good. Everyone (except Bailey who wouldn’t touch anything quichish with a ten foot pole) loved it. I told Matt there was another to be frozen for another day and he said, “Don’t freeze it, lets eat it tomorrow.” You know it has to be a tasty quiche for a man to say that right? I made a quick batch of guacolmole to serve with it too. I think it went well with it. Here’s the recipe.

2 pie crusts (I used frozen)
2 cups cubed chicken
2 packets of taco seasoning
2/3 c. salsa
2 c. cheddar cheese (I forgot to buy this but had a block of sharp cheddar I grated)
8 eggs
2 c. half and half
2 T butter
1/2 c. sliced olives
4 oz. can chopped green chilis

I sauted my chicken breasts in the butter, covered with the first packet of taco seasoning and added just a little water so it wasn’t dry. I let it cook and cut it into small pieces with my spatula. Mix the eggs with the cream and then stir in the chilis and olives.
Bake the pie crusts 8 minutes and then pat them to flatten them back out.
Put the chicken in the bottom of each pie crust, followed by the cheese, and then 1/3 c. salsa in each and pour the egg mixture over the top.
Bake at 400 for 35 minutes. (I turned it down to 375 and then cooked it for another 10 minutes. Be sure and get the deep shell pie crusts because they are really full.

Have a great Tuesday! I’m going to try to get the few presents I have left on my list. I was able to hit a few stores yesterday while Izzy was in school and got a lot done. Still doing laundry. Still enjoying the ability to do laundry.

Coke zero campaign “Life as it should be” is real fun on the Internet. You can direct your own small movie and afterwards send it to all your friends. Coke has found some old b/w film clips that you, as the director, can manipulate by using an easy voice recorder. You can write “the conversation” to your own clip and say what ever you want. Afterwards your movie competes with other movies to be the highest rated. This is living “life as it should be”. Beat your friends to it:

time travel tuesday ~ fraidy cat edition

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

Travel back to the last time you were really scared!
Were you afraid to look under the bed when you were little, or even now?
When is the last time you remember being very scared?
Sign mr. linky and travel with us!

Well, the reason I chose this topic is because I was recently scared. My darling hubby was the offender and he will be paid back :o)! I came down to our house for a change of clothes for him. My parents were using a generator and could use their water during the power outage the last couple of days so we took showers there. It was so pitch black dark in our house it was eery… but I wasn’t really scared. UNTIL I was in the back of the house with one candle looking for clothes. I heard the front door open and close. I thought it could possibly be the wind… so I called out, “what are you doing?” hoping for a response from a familiar voice. NO response. I waited and then heard something fall. I immediately headed for the back door. There was no way I would go in there! Out came Matt. He couldn’t believe I was that scared!!! Just wait Mr. Matt… just wait!!!
