This little face brings me a LOT of happiness! I took this shot during Stafford's first rice cereal experience. I think the vast majority ended up on his chin. Since then we're making some progress and tonight we're going to have green beans! He tasted them yesterday when I made them and seemed to love them! We'll have the camera out for that one too so I'm sure a series of what Stafford has eaten for dinner and how much of it has landed on his chin is soon to come!
I'm trying to find a few places to "link up" to each week wtih pictures. I want to get better at photography and the only way I can is by practicing.
One place I have been practicing is the kitchen. We had Popeye Pitas and this new recipe, Zucchini Quiche for dinner last night. This is another winner!!!
4 cups zucchini thinly sliced
1 can artichoke hearts
1 onion thinly sliced
3 T. butter
2 tsp parsley dried flakes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cups mozzarella shredded
2 T. mustard prepared
1 pastry shell
In a large skillet, saute the zucchini, artichokes and onion in butter until tender; drain. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and spices. Stir in cheese and zucchini mixture. Spread mustard over pastry shell (I squirted the mustard on the back of a spoon) and add egg mixture.
Bake, uncovered, at 400* for 35-40 minutes. Cover loosely with foil after 25 minutes if needed to prevent overbrowning. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
This is heartyenough for dinner but pretty enough for a luncheon or shower.
Thanks to my sister Liz who introduced me to this one. It's going to become a staple in our house!!
