When I get bored I want to cook. Cooking engages my brain, it smells good, it tastes good, and if I do it right, it looks good. I’ve created something wonderful from just a few random forgotten ingredients in the fridge. This quiche was no different. Its the end of the week and I have odds and ends in the fridge that need to get used up.
It’s 5am. My alarm goes off, but I have already been awake for a little while just lying in bed enjoying the silence of the early morning. No other time of day is this quiet and peaceful. I reach over and hit the off button on my phone before the ringing wakes Gavin, who has likely snuck into bed next to me sometime during the night. After rising from the warmth of the blankets, the very first thing I do is head to my new espresso machine in the kitchen.
I made this salad in the work lunchroom once and everyone kept commenting on how good the cut veggies smelled and how beautiful it was. So it would be an easy, yet impressive side dish for a potluck. The best thing is it only takes about 15 minutes to make.
