a meal for your monday

Now that Spring Break is over, we are back to our "normal" routine, and with that comes lots of cooking! I try to cook at least 3-4 nights a week, but I have been in kind of a rut lately. I try not to repeat meals very often because I get very bored with eating the same things over and over.
All this to say, I came across THIS recipe while scouring foodie-websites this morning and decided like it sounded like a yummy and easy dinner! Of course, I am practically incapable of following a recipe exactly, so I did make some changes...

I give you: Spinach, Bacon & Goat Cheese Quiche
PS-that dressing is SO delish!

If your man needs a little more "substance"...just add a grilled cheese on the side!

I essentially followed the recipe and instructions; I just changed up the ingredients a little.

Here's what I used:
8 whole eggs
1/2 cup half & half
Salt, Pepper & Nutmeg
6 strips of bacon (cooked & crumbled/chopped)
2 large handfuls baby spinach
2 teaspoons minced garlic (I didn't fry it-just sauteed it w/ the spinach)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 ounces goat cheese (I used the garlic & herb from HEB)

I followed the given instruction & baked the little cups until they weren't "jiggly" anymore.
Turned out pretty good if you ask me :)

So, I gave up desserts and candy for Lent...it's been hard but certainly do-able and so worth it. I do, however, love to have something to munch on in the evenings while watching my shows and reading blogs! I've made the Snickerdoodle Chex Mix from the side of the Cinnamon Chex box a time or two, and it is so good! I decided to make it with some additions (surprise!) tonight.
Here's what I used:

I just made more of the cinnamon-sugar-butter mixture to coat all of the goods evenly and baked it in a 250 degree oven for about 20 minutes...

Voila! Tasty and semi-healthy snack mix.
