Drizzle/Snow ~ Ham & Cheese Quiche ~ Easter Eggs ~ Yam & Sole Almondine ~ Potassium


Good 39º cloudy morning.
There appears to be just a sprinkling of snow on my mountain top....



Yesterday stayed cool.... 49º with occasional rain (drizzle) and we probably got 12 or 10 drops of the wet stuff! .. and a touch of blue sky and some sunshine!

My tulips are on their last leg...

and.... my apple tree has started blooming...



Here is a super simple great Ham & Cheese Quiche you can make for Easter Sunday morning... go get the ingredients now....



When I was at Safeway on Wednesday I found these... talk about easy!! Hard boiled colored eggs!!!! They are distributed by Almark Foods in Georgia...


These eggs are PERFECT. Peeled easy and taste wonderful. Now I'm spoiled!!!

Later dinner was Sole Almondine (Omaha Steaks) cooked in the Air Fryer and yam. (Cooked in Crock Pot with a little water, low for 4 hours)


Not only are yams a great source of fiber but they are high in potassium.  One medium banana has about 422 milligrams of potassium, which is about 11 percent of the 4700 milligrams adults should get daily. Now yams have about 670 milligrams after cooking ... boiled, or baked.


Next was chair, wine, and TV.


All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.

Oh how great are those all ready colored and boiled Easter eggs! I always dreaded doing that. Don't know why because the boys loved it. On Easter dad would hide them, the boys would go find them. Then they would go in the house and dad would hide them again. lol Fun!

Love the looks of the quiche but because of our Becky I can't do anything with pork in the dish. :(

Yes, love love the pre cooked/colored eggs, T!! As for the quiche, you can substitute sliced/cubed beef roast, turkey, chicken, etc....I think even getting a cooked rotisserie chicken and cutting it up would be good! xo
