Good morning! Nashville is a swamp land today and I just took the coldest shower of my life. Nothing like a good sweat to start the day off.Usually I meet up with East Nasty on Wednesdays, but today I had to squeeze my run in extra early because I have a work event this morning. It was kind of nice to have a quiet solo run — I don’t think I’ve done a run alone in a while. Just me and this (literally) red-headed duck thing.Spork in the road.Five miles, done!
So, remember when I did my epic DC/Baltimore recap post and said that I’d mail you a loaf of bread if you read the whole post? I was kidding, but not kidding. Reader Charlotte actually emailed me to say she read the whole thing. So I baked her a whole loaf of cinnamon raisin bread and mailed it to her. Let’s see how it holds up in transit…Other stuff from the oven lately: Quiche!We are running out of food, but I don’t want to go grocery shopping because we’ll be out of town this weekend. I rummaged through the fridge/freezer and found enough ingredients to make a quiche — including this pre-made whole wheat pie crust.You guys might recall that I’ve dabbled in crust-making recently — but even though I like making my own crusts, it takes a bit of time. I thought these pre-made ones might be convenient to have on hand!
Unfortunately, these crusts aren’t as no-fuss as they appear. I found that they stuck to their pans and my quiche got all crumbly when I tried to slice it up. Not cool, crust.Next time I’ll probably stick with the 48-hour New York Times crust recipe instead. Because who doesn’t have two entire days of their life to dedicate toward crust-making.
Anyways — crust drama aside, the quiche turned out really well. Plus my neighbor showed up at our door yesterday afternoon with zucchini from his garden. Surprise side dish — score! We paired the zuc with a lonely sweet potato from the pantry and tossed the slices on the grill.La Croix consumption is at an all-time high in the Lambkin household. We’re getting better at cutting back on weeknight wine!And that’s my “slice” of life for you guys today. Have a good one!
