Just Food

Only made it to the gym twice this week as other things have kept me occupied. But did make a few pic-worthy meals:

London broil with sauteed veggies. Marinated in straight-up balsamic for about 10 hours (should have waited longer), seared on the grill (450-500F) for 1 minute per side, then cooked at low heat for about 20 minutes. Nice brown sear on outer 1/4" with a great medium-rare finish on the inside:
Weather was lousy this morning, so took some time to make a nice spinach quiche with cheddar and Monterey Jack. Senya liked it so much she had two pieces for breakfast and another for dinner.

Still down a few lb from previous week high, despite lack of gym time.


  1. that london broil looks perfect

  2. YUMMY!!! Both meals look fantastic!

  3. How do you make the spinach quiche :-)

  4. Anonymous,

    Let me see if I can recall the quiche exactly. I sortta winged it, but here goes.

    Melt maybe about a tablespoon of butter and grease inside of 9"-ish pan with it. I sprinkled the pan with almond meal - more than just a coating, but not too thick.

    Than get some frozen spinach (some generic Bird's Eye is fine). Thaw it and drain it. Throw in mixing bowl.

    Add about 6 eggs and about 1 to 1.5 cups of shredded cheese of your choice to mixing bowl.

    Mix all together and pour in pan.

    Bake in oven until everything solidifies. Test with either a fork or toothpick.

    Garnish with sliced tomatoes.

    Optional add ons:
    - 1 diced onion
    - worcestershire sauce (maybe 1Tbs)
    - dried mustard (careful, this is strong, so maybe 0.5-1 teaspoon)
    - sliced mushrooms

    Hope this helps
