Hello & Happy Easter

We are back home but have been busy with getting regular life back in order. If there is such a thing as regular life??? I think anything called spring break is really a curse. It is just to hard to come back from one and get back into school days. I actually do better during the winter. I can get through that. Now spring, that is a different story! So you will notice I changed the dates over to the right at the Menu at a Glance for next week and I will just post here our menu for the next few days.

Chicken Sausage
Trader Joe's makes these great chicken mango sausages, use those or some other type.
Cook and cube sausage. Toss with cooked linguine or angel hair pasta. Add 6 oz feta cheese, plum tomatoes, olive oil, fresh basil and the juice from one lime.


1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
12 slices bacon
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/3 cup minced onion
4 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups light cream
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white sugar
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Place bacon in a large skillet, and fry over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels, then chop coarsely. Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion into pastry shell.
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, salt, sugar and cayenne pepper. Pour mixture into pastry shell.
Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce heat to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), and bake an additional 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted 1 inch from edge comes out clean. Allow quiche to sit 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.
