Offering a choice....

As I have mentioned previously, we have a few vegetarians among us, so meal preparations are carried out with that in mind if we are having a family gathering.  The picture shows one way.:-)

Oops!  I guess I cut off the top of the pie stand.  It is a Longaberger design, and I have had many opportunities to use it.

The top choice is Spinach Pie, a favorite of Country Girl and City Girl!

10-oz. frozen, thawed, drained, chopped spinach
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup cottage cheese
2 garlic cloves
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
grated onion, to taste
dash nutmeg
- Spray pie dish.  Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Mix all together and pour into dish.  Bake 45 minutes.  4-6 servings

This recipe appeared on a WW thread a number of years ago.  To make this more weight conscious, you may substitute fat-free ingredients.

The choice on the bottom is called Easy Ham and Cheese Quiche.  I will post that recipe next week.

Remember, there is a giveaway going on in my post for Monday.  If you want your name to be considered, the comment needs to be on Monday's post.

For my "fresh start" today, I will finish that first two cups of water by noon!:-)

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.

  2. Nellie, I like raw spinach and I like quiche with a little. I bet this is good, I just am not a big leafy greens eater. I could almost be total vegetarian. Blessings, xoxo,Susie
