A Spinach Quiche Is So Simple
There are two days a year where I want to be treated like a princess. Those days are my birthday and mother’s day. Is it too much to ask to be a princess two days out of 365? No, it isn’t. On both days, I long for long uninterrupted hot showers, breakfast of my choice, hot coffee that won’t turn cold because I am rushing around, there aren’t any dishes to wash, no laundry to fold and no cooking to be done.
Those days never quite work out like I envision. I often don’t have time for a long shower, or hot coffee because baseball coaches love to schedule tournaments on mother’s day and you know with baseball comes laundry.
I want my own mother to feel special so I cook and clean for her so that she feels loved and appreciated. You know with cooking there are dirty dishes and before long my dream of being a lazy princess has been crushed.
A Little About Spinach Quiche
Over the years I have learned that there are ways to make my mom a special meal without too much fuss or effort. Quiche is the world’s easiest meal and it can be served for breakfast, brunch or even dinner. My typical go-to quiche recipe is this Asparagus Quiche. But there is something about caramelized onions that make me swoon. Caramelizing the onions are the most time-consuming step (albeit extremely simple) in this recipe. Once the onions have cooked down they are mixed with eggs, fresh spinach, and cheese. Serve this spinach quiche with this Easy Spring Salad Recipe and some fresh fruit and call it a day!
By the end of the day on mother’s day, I will have watched my son play baseball, read homemade cards from my girls, witness my husband do the dishes and listened to my own mother tell her stories. That’s when I know that I may not be a princess, but I am lucky nonetheless.
