I forgot I knew how to make quiche until Mom reminded me. I was talking, well, really complaining, that I was running out of low carb ideas for supper, that I would actually want to eat. My husband loves low carb meals and I prefer whole grains and lean protein. So, I have to get… Read More Two-Cheese Italian Broccoli Crustless Quiche

Mulling over things, reminiscing, remembering. Working out and cleaning out, and putting away. Don’t we all do that as season’s change? Clean up and pack up… Read More September’s closing
