Quiche and Easy
Table runner? What table runner? Ok, I'll admit it - I love the patchwork part of quilting waaaaay more than the quilting part of quilting. So I'm distracting myself with food and easy (read 1-nap) projects. Wrong? Probably. But tasty and oh so satisfying!
I found the easiest and tastiest ham and cheese quiche recipe and I thought I'd share - and if I post it here, I'll always be able to find it.
Ham and Cheese Quiche
Pie crust - I use Pillsbury refrigerated and a deep dish pyrex pie plate
1 1/2 c. shredded cheese and 4 tsp. flour - toss these two together and put in the bottom of the pie crust (really any kind of shredded cheese will work).
1/2 C. diced ham - I just realized you can buy diced ham packaged in the deli case - awesome! layer ham on top of cheese/flour mixture
3 eggs and 1 c. milk - mix together and pour over the ham/cheese layers, then I always throw a little extra cheese on top ( you don't have to but it helps give it a nice GBD top).
I leave the salt out but you can include 1/2 tsp. if you want, we just salt and pepper to taste at the table. Bake at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes, until golden brown and the top is completely set (you can always check with knife inserted in the top, should come out clean when done).
The ball is a project I've been wanting to make for the doodlebug for a while. I have a ton of scraps and if you google fabric ball you can find a million tutorials for them, and they all seem similar, 6 leaf shape pieces (I drew mine on a piece of xerox paper and it was about 9 inches long for this size ball) sewn together, turned inside out and stuffed. Voila! So because the doodle is really into balls of every size, shape and color I wanted to make her a set of color wheel balls. This one is my scrap fabric trial run and I love how it turned out! It really was super easy - start to finish about 45 minutes.
