Exactly 28 days ago, our house flooded due to a broken whole house water filer. 10,000 gallons of water poured into our home over a 8 hour period while we were at work. We stayed in 7 different places over the past 4 weeks and ate at just about every fast food place available. I am THRILLED to be back in our house as of today and cooking for my family again.

This is a quick, delicious quiche, perfect for spring and summer. I treat this recipe as a base and make changes based on in season vegetables or vegetables that need to be used quickly. I also vary the protein, using bacon, sausage, canadian bacon or ham. This orginal recipe is from Life as Mom.
Spinach and Bacon Quiche
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups fresh spinach
1 small tomato, chopped
4 slices bacon, chopped and cooked
1 1/2 c milk
1/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sprinkle cheese, vegetables and bacon in bottom of unbaked pie crust. Mix eggs, milk and seasonings in a bowl. Pour into pie crust. Bake for 1 hour, or until knife inserted in quiche comes out clean. Allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving.

Two weeks ago our house flooded and we have been displaced to several different locations - we slept in 4 different beds in 5 days. We are back in our house, but the restoration and repairs are just beginning. I do however have a functioning kitchen, so we are back to eating at home. YEAH! However, the rest of our house is a mess, so our meals will be very simple so we can focus on the clean up and restoration of our home.
