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.

  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
