This savory roasted tomato and asparagus quiche has the best flavors of summer. A simple and easy dish you can make for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
Hiya all, how is your summer going so far?
I have been enjoying every minute of it and trying to convert the less exciting times into a blessing, after all it’s all about how you look at it, right? Like when your four kids ask to have buddy or two over to hang out and next thing you know your house looks like a day care center. So I can either pull my hair out or count my blessings. There is a third option which involves alcohol but I don’t drink, so ya…
In all seriousness, my summer has been great so far. Last week my family and I went to Texas and we had a blast! Being with family is something magical… can’t explain, just an awesome feeling and I can’t help but to feel incredibly blessed and thankful. Coming home is no disappointment either. I love where I am in life, generally speaking, so I was just as happy to get home, see my kitties and care for my garden. Since my arrival, I’ve picked lots of fresh cherry tomatoes, green beans, lettuce, zucchini and summer squash. Talk about some fresh veggies for dinner! Don’t believe me? check out my Instagram feed here!
Cooking is another reason why I get so excited to come home. My kitchen is unquestionably my heavenly place. It’s my safe zone, my comfort space and in many ways my therapy room.
Doing what you love is like a high speed connection with your better self
… Uhh, let’s quote that!
