Saturday's quiche for brunchfast (credit to hubby for coining "brunchfast"). This was my first try at making a quiche, and I kinda-sorta followed a recipe from (of all things!) a Wal-Mart holiday sales flyer. Seriously ...! I say kinda-sorta because I didn't buy what they were trying to promote: ready-made pie crust and brand-name sausage, and for some reason they were only putting sausage in it. I grabbed up my reprint of the 1896 Fanny Farmer Cookbook and made my own crust while hubby cut up fresh spinach and mushrooms to toss in with the browning sausage, then I sprinkled shredded sharp cheddar over the top right before putting it into the oven. Here is the result (the one that kicked off hubby's "Do you want to get a picture of it before we devour it?")

Another recipe from the same WM flyer: stuffed mushrooms which went beautifully with a nice thick-cut ribeye that was in the serious markdown case. The entire dinner:

Now for the sole survivor from the chicken pot pie the night before last:

Hubby has offered to buy me a second glass pie pan, not only so I can make two quiches at once, but so we don't have to hurry to wash the one up. He'll pretty much buy me any cooking implement I want, as long as I keep cooking good food.
