My first recipe

Breakfast for me was either Cheerios and raisins or cottage cheese with raisins, sunflower seeds, and bacon bits.  I can’t eat the cereal or the raisins on a low-fat plan, so I’ve been eating quiche.  It’s an egg-and-bacon breakfast that I only have to microwave.

So after four or five quiches following other people’s recipes, I decided to invent my own.  No more lox and bagel, so here is lox and quiche.

Lox and Cream Cheese Quiche

6 eggs
1/2 cup cream
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper (or to taste)
1 tbsp dill

3 oz smoked salmon, diced
4 oz cream cheese, cut/torn into small chunks
1/4 cup green onions, diced

Preheat oven to 350º.

Whip eggs, cream, salt, pepper, and dill until frothy. Arrange smoked salmon, cream cheese, and green onions in a 9″ pie pan. Pour egg mixture over these.

Bake 35-45 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

This was so good I ate three servings.

Here are the nutritionals.

I have to admit, though, that the first time I made it, I ate 3/4 of it. That’s not on my diet!

Mmmm! Ketchup!

My Heinz No Sugar Added ketchup arrived today.  It has an odd taste at first, different from the normal, but not awful like Hunt’s catsup.  Actually pretty yummy, and it made the roast I ate for dinner SOOO yummy.  I want to try the Walden Farms calorie free tomato ketchup, but the color is weird.  All in all, I’m going to order a bottle of the Heinz for the office.

I realized it’s been over ten days since I took any candy from Daz’s bowl.
