what i am eating

I love cooking and eating, and I especially love looking at pictures of food!  If you love food as much as I do, please add your food pictures/recipes/food related posts to the linky below.  All you have to do is link back to this blog post.  I look forward to seeing what everyone else is eating this week!



We are rolling in eggs, no really, 8 chickens lay 8 eggs each day...and I am running out of recipes!  Speaking of which, if you are local and want some eggs, call me!  So, this week quiche was on the menu.  I actually do a really simple quiche with just eggs/milk/cheese.  My kids aren't into veggies in their "egg pie" so I serve them separately.  But, if I were to make this for just myself, there would be a lot of mushrooms/spinach/broccoli/onions/peppers, that is just me :-)

Basic Quiche recipe


1 pie crust

8-10 eggs
3/4 cup whole milk
6-8 oz cubed extra sharp cheddar (i use 1 8oz block of Cabot New York Extra Sharp)

Put pie crust in 9" pie plate.  In a bowl whisk eggs and milk together.  Pour in pie crust.  Drop cubes of cheese around into the egg mixture.  Bake in preheated 450 degree oven for 10 minutes, and then turn heat down to 350 degrees for maybe another hour or until a knife comes out clean.


Now for my favorites from last week!




I can't wait to see what everyone else is eating!  Don't forget to check out the what i am eating pinterest board for previous feature recipes!

  1. We have our own chickens too. When they are all laying every day, I tend to make lots of quiche, ice cream, custard and cakes... it's not a bad life really :)

  3. Thanks for hosting another week! Oh I LOVE eating eggs - my son eats them up too, although I would have a hard time with 8 a day as well! :) I'm sure you'll have some very grateful neighbors if you need to offload some! :)

  5. When my Mom has too many eggs, she's make a big batch of custard with the yolks and meringue cookies with the whites. (She always did have a sweet tooth.)

  6. I love 'egg pie' hubby not so much so I don't get it very often. That spinach salad from last week looks really good too! :)
