After the visit of #nemo Mother Nature decided that she was not done with her mood swing. We woke up this morning to not only big piles of snow but also drizzles of rain. Ohh this is going to be a dreary day. This was not expected, I will be attending Toy Fair NYC today and definitely don’t want to walk around the Javits center with wet squeaky boots!
I mean really?! Who pissed Mother Nature off?! I want names people, because she is upset. We were enjoying sunny days and clear skies, now this?
Welp, instead of my mood going sour because of the yucky weather, I decided to whip up something for our spirits.
So I’m calling this one “The Rainy Day Quiche”.
Handful of chopped red, yellow and orange sweet peppers
1/3 cup of scallions
Pinch of garlic powder
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Pinch of basil
1/3 cup of almond milk
(Serving size 2)
After chopping up then peppers and onions, I mixed in the remaining ingredients.
I must say ramekins come in rather handy. I use them for serving soup, sauces and snacks. But this would be the first time I actually used them for their real purpose; baking.
I turned the toaster oven on 350 degrees and let the dishes bake for 25 minutes, because they are mini quiches, the cook time is a lot less.
While the quiches were rising, I fried a few slices of turkey bacon and prepared a Kale and Mint green monster smoothie. I definitely think this would put a little pep in our steps.
Since we got an early start, we can actually set aside a few minutes to sit and enjoy our breakfast before facing Mother Nature.
Hope your day is off to a great start and you are celebrating National Hot Breakfast Month with me! 🙂
