Happy Wednesday, peeps!
While last week I was all about sporting a winter glow (and still am), this week I thought I’d share ANOTHER food
rut phase that’s actually been ongoing for the last couple of months. You see, in between mountains of sandwiches and getting punny with nut butter, there’s been another food love in my life which ended (for now) with this little stroke of genius…
Quiche, party of ONE!
I know, I know, I’m STILL patting myself on the back! But really it shouldn’t have surprised me so much. There were plenty of dishes that led up to this deliciousness…
Like a GIGANTIC bowl of Greek salad!
Greek WHEATBERRY salad!
Sounds fancy but really it was just a throw-together-and-add-some-olive-oil kind of thing! 😉
Eggs in a jar!
Wait forrrrrrrrrr it…
Topped with Greek wheatberry salad! 😉
And then of course, WHO could forget the #strangebutgood
Anyone else thinking of quoting Forrest Gump right about now? 😉
But back to that quiche…
That light and fluffy, warm and cheesy…
Ready in 30 minutes and ain’t gotta share with anyone QUICHE!
Also known as the take-a-million-pictures-of-because-I’m-so-damn-proud-of-it quiche! 😀

I’ve made this baby THREE times…eaten with a side salad, eaten in the car, and even eaten cold because I’m too lazy to walk to the break room at work to use the microwave and it’s been amazing every time! Seriously, you’ve GOT to make this!
And if Greek isn’t your thing (for shame!), then throw in some other random veggies…but please, just don’t skip the cheese! 😀
Now head on over to Peas & Crayons and check out the foods all the other linker uppers have been loving lately!
What’s the best thing you’ve eaten this week?
Do you like olives?
I used to HATE them growing up and would whine about picking them off pizza, but now they’re one of my favorite toppings!
