You don't have to include a high carb crust when you make quiche.
1 package chopped spinach, chopped some more
1 1/4" slice of ham diced
3 Crispy slices of bacon
2 tbl chopped onion
2 tbl chopped jalapeno
1 clove minced garlic
4 or 5 fresh from the hen house 100% organic eggs
goat cheese, finely grated parmaisan cheese (I use a micro plane), shredded sharp cheddar
2 tbl mayonaise
1 tbl butter
1 tbl cream cheese
Heat the butter and cream cheese in the micro for 15 second or so and blend together. In a separate little bowl, whip the mayo till it's creamy. Mix butter and cream cheese with mayo till it's thoroughly mixed and creamy.
Sweat the onions, jalapeno, garlic, ham and bacon in a pan w/ olive oil. . . just for a minute or two to make the onion barely translucent.
Separate the yolks from the whites putting the whites into a larger bowl. Whip the whites with a wisk until they're foamy and just beginning to show signs of peaking. You're just wanting to get some air into them, not make a merengue.
Mix the cream into the yolks, now mix all the other ingredients except the cheddar together with the yolks and cream. Break the goat cheese into little pieces a 1/4 inch or smaller before mixing. Add the mayo mixture.
Now pour this mess into the whipped egg whites and gently but thoroughly fold together. Pour the whole thing into a casserole or pie pan and bake at 350. After about 20 or 30 minutes, depending upon the depth of your pan, sprinkle the cheddar over the top and let bake another 10-15 minutes. Times may vary.
Now the battle begins. The pound come off slowly from here on out. No more one or two pounds a day. The easy stuff has been burned. Now I've gotta show some real restraint and eat less of all these low/no carb foods. No slacking or back sliding. No, "I'll just have this one little piece of cake" bullshit. Once you give yourself permission to have one, it's a downhill slide back up to 225 (don't ya just love conflicting metaphors? or is that just a Yogiism?).
The temp around here is down in the low teens. Brrrrr. It's fucking cold. Hard to believe I was in Florida 10 days ago cruising in my boat with beautiful women in bikinis on the bow. This sucks.
Condolences to MacDaddy up there in Minneapolis where it's REALLY cold and my poor son who just this past Mon. temporarily moved to Milwaukee and will be leaving for Eau Claire, WI for a couple of months in the next couple weeks.
SonnyBoy, Go buy some warm clothes!
Hurry January 20th. I can hardly take another day of the MoronMonkeyBoy Bush the Chimp as president of the United States. Who could have believed that an administration could fuck up the United States of America as bad as this one did. Who could have believed that after the first four year, the ignorant proles would have elected him again. It makes me realize what a vile, ignorant, bunch of low dwelling morons make up a solid core of the electorate.
But who knows, maybe it's exactly what we needed to get to where we are today with perhaps one who will be one of the greatest presidents ever about to be inaugurated. A man of African-American descent. . . holy shit, it really happened!!!!
Savor this wonderful time.
