First I gathered all the ingredients.
I took a short cut and used store-bought deep dish pie shells. Because they come in pairs, I decided to make two quiches at the same time. Mr. Painted Quilt likes to eat! *wink*
Is your mouth watering yet?
I made two so there’s enough to go around. Dinner will be served shortly. I just have to make a salad and the rhubarb crisp is in the oven.
So are y’all coming?
Tomato Onion Quiche
- 1 unbaked pie shell
- 2 c shredded cheese (cheddar & mozzarella)
- 3 medium fresh tomatoes (thinly sliced)
- 1/2 onion (thinly sliced)
- 6 sliced mini bella mushrooms (optional)
- 1 t dried basil
- 1/4 t garlic salt
- cracked pepper - to taste
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 c milk
- 3 T grated parmesan cheese
Sprinkle bottom of pie shell with cheeses then layer tomatoes, onions and mushrooms over cheese. Sprinkle basil, garlic salt & pepper on top. Then beat the eggs and milk together and pour over all. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Bake at 350F for 45-50 minutes.
NOTE: The above recipe is for one quiche. If you’d like to make two as I did, just double all the ingredients.
On the medical front, I heard from my doctor late this afternoon, just after she received the biopsy results. Both came back negative. To paraphrase her words, she wasn’t sure if this was good or bad news. I was told to wait at home while she called the resident oncologist and after speaking with her and reviewing my file, she called back to tell me that she would be turning my case over to her. She (the oncologist) will be ordering additional tests from the current biopsy samples and will also be ordering a PET scan to try to determine the source of the cancer. Evidently I will be hearing from her as early as Tuesday of next week with an appointment for the scan. It’s the waiting that’s the difficult part.
And we’ve been keeping busy. Today Mr. PQ and I worked outside for about three hours cutting the grass, doing some edging and weeding the flower beds. We also planted an ornamental Japanese willow along with some hardy ground cover foliage under the maples where the grass struggles to survive.
Whenever I could fit in a few minutes, I’ve also been working on my nine patch quilt and the entire top is now pieced together. The weather forecast is calling for rain tomorrow and if that happens, I’m hoping to get the border cut and sewn on.
And now, it’s time for dinner! Are ya coming?
