thankful thursday by megan

Good morning! This morning has been slow, but packed with goodies! I am so thankful for mornings like these! I woke up and read some Romans, ate some waffles with Mighty Maple peanut butter and blueberries, drank my coffee, checked blogs, and watched Regis & Kelly. And, now I am here πŸ™‚ Yoga is next.

Last night for dinner I made a Mushroom and Grueyre Quiche. It was a Whole Foods recipe I got from the Whole Foods Recipe app on my iTouch. Love that app, by the way! I’ve got another recipe from the app planned for Sunday, too!

So I started by roasting button mushrooms, portobello caps (that I diced), and half of a yellow onion seasoned with salt, pepper, and extra virgin olive oil. 15 minutes at 400 degrees F.

When these were done roasting I mixed them with 4 oz. of Gruyere that I grated before hand. I love Gruyere! I love all cheese, actually.

I also whisked together 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of 2% milk (opted against using heavy cream like the recipe called for), and some thyme.

And then I layered the mushroom, onion, & cheese mixture on the bottom of a pre-baked pie shell and poured the cream mixture on top.

Popped it in the oven for around 45 to 50 minutes at 350 degrees F and voila!

Quite pretty, eh?

IMG_7760Look at those mushrooms! This quiche was very delicious and was a huge hit with my family too. I love mushrooms and this quiche was full of them. And it was so easy to make, but it was time consuming. I started prepping at 5:00 and it was not ready until about 7:00. It was worth the wait though!

Okay, so I am off to my matthankfully. I have a Physique 57 DVD appointment with Lizzy at 4:30 and then possibly going to help a friend babysit later tonight…depending on my energy level!

Happy Thursday!!

waiting by megan

Currently I am sitting in my room waiting for a delivery. My sister, Lizzy, ordered a Mac a few days ago and today is the day it should be arriving. So, since I am unemployed I get the thrill of waiting for the delivery so Lizzy won’t have to drive to UPS and pick it up. It’s fine though because it is an excuse for me not to go to the gym and…practice yoga instead! Did I tell you that Lizzy and I had the bright idea to order Physique 57 DVD’s? Well we did. And my legs are as sore as they have ever been in my life. After one 35 minute workout. But, it is a good sore! We are doing it again tomorrow. Oh goodness. So, the soreness in my legs is why I think yoga is a better idea than cardio is for today. We will see.

Nothing too exciting going on today. It’s rainy down here. I have fun plans for the afternoon though- if the rain doesn’t get in the way, that is! I am meeting my friend, Jen, for coffee and if it does not rain off to Lakeview for the Harrison Ave. Marketplace.

I am so excited about the market. My church is a sponsor and I have never been before so I am really looking forward to it. There’s live music and food and crafts and cooking demonstrations. It’s such a wonderful thing! I am going to be helping out with the kids booth…most likely with crafts and such. I will try to take pictures.

I hope y’all have a gorgeous Wednesday. And, as for me I am off to do some yummy yoga πŸ™‚
