So sorry I haven't been on.....I'm still recovering from the "germs" the grandchildren left me and also I've been having problems with subscriptions at Mary Jane's Farm and yada, yada, yada.
But here's a little of what's been going on here in Horseshoe!
Here is a quiche I made last night that was SO easy and SO good but it is not too filling so I had 2 big pieces plus they suggested having some crusty bread and a salad with it....neither of which I had made.

Butter, for ramekins
Coarse salt
1 package (10 ounces) frozen broccoli florets
6 large eggs
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (3 ounces)

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Butter four 8-ounce ramekins (or a 9-inch pie dish); set aside. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add broccoli; cook 1 minutes. Drain well; transfer to a cutting board, and blot dry with paper towels. Chop coarsely.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Stir in broccoli and cheese.
  3. Place ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet. Ladle broccoli mixture into ramekins, dividing evenly. Bake until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Serve with crusty bread and a mixed-green salad, if desired.

This recipe came from on their Everday Food t.v. program that comes from Martha Stewart's kitchens. I watch Everyday Food on Saturdays here in Arkansas and they have great recipes. I went to Walmart grocery shopping today and got several recipes worth of groceries so I will update you on how they turn out. They were all from Everyday Food.
