Good morning! Can y’all believe it’s already Thursday? I know I say that every week, but the days just fly by!
Last night for dinner we had Chicken, Broccoli, and Cheddar Mini Quiche inspired by my friend Stefanie!
- 1 cup frozen broccoli florets, thawed and chopped
- 1 rotisserie chicken breast, chopped
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 4 eggs
- 3/4 cup milk (I used nonfat cow’s milk)
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a muffin pan (ours only holds 6) liberally with cooking spray. Put the broccoli (or any veggie you like) in to about 1/4 of the way up. Next add the chicken (or whatever meat or extra veggies you want). Top with cheese (again, whatever you want or have on hand). In a mixing bowl whisk the eggs and milk together until fluffy. Add the spices and the flour, and whisk til there are no clumps. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, pour the egg mixture on top of the broccoli/chicken/cheese combo, filling til just below the rim. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until the quiche is no longer jiggly. Serve immediately!
We had a big salad along side the quiche:
Last night I cleaned our house like a madwoman because my mother- and sister-in-law are coming to stay for the weekend! We wanted everything to look nice when they got here, so we dusted, did laundry, vacuumed all over, cleaned the bathrooms, deep cleaned the kitchen, and set out towels and bedding. Should be a great time, and we are very excited to see them!
This morning I’m going in to have some blood work done, so no breakfast til later. Before you start to worry (that is, IF you were starting worry), don’t. I don’t have any problems that I know of, but when I was discussing my family’s health history with my doctor last week she suggested I get some blood work done just to be safe. There’s a lot of high cholesterol and blood pressure problems in my immediate family, and it makes me very susceptible to those same problems. Not to mention it’s just a good idea to get checked out anyway! I’ll be sure to let y’all know how everything goes as I find out 🙂
And as for the cookies? Well, I concocted fabulous new cookie that will be named later today (you know, after I get to eat it and all :)), and I’m so excited to share it with y’all! I’m sure that the moment I talk about it someone will say, “Hey, I’ve had that kind of cookie before!” but for now we’ll just pretend I’m a genius 🙂
Have you ever had blood work done before? If you feel OK sharing, what was your experience? What did you get it done for? And did the results change your life at all? Like I said, I don’t really know what to expect. I’m not scared of needles or the actual procedure, but I am slightly worried about the results. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were some major dietary changes happening as a result of it all, but I suppose we’ll cross that bridge when we get there!
