I won an Award! I Don't Know What To Fix For Dinner - Let Them It Leftover's Quiche and a Contest!

I am aso excited! I got another award! Wow, what an honor! Lana at I Love My 5 Kids presented me with the Honest Scrap Award! I haven't visited Lana's blog before, but after poking around I found an amazing mom and quite a busy woman! She has some great recipes, ( I am totally making this, Maple Oven Pancake when we get back from our trip!) a very strong faith and 5 wonderful kids! She has some great ideas! I signed up to be a follower and I'm looking forward to getting to know her better!

Here are the rules for the award.

1.) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award. ~ Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

2.) Share "10 Honest Things" about myself.

3.) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design or those who have encouraged me.

4.) Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.

Here's my 10 things ...

1. I love to read cookbooks! I have lots, and I like to check them out at the library and find new ones on blogs!

2. I love to bake and try out all the new recipes I find!

3 I love to run on trails in the mountains! To be alone and see the beautiful places God has given us! I love to see the deer and the gorgeous trees! I never would of thought that our desert state of Utah would have places that are lush and green in the heat of the summer! Sometimes I have to stop and close my eyes and smell the damp green smells that I grew up with in the woods where we lived in Washington!

4. I like to do laundry! I know, I can't believe after being married for 29 years and hating laundry, now I actually like it! I love to get the stains out, I love hanging clothes on the clothes line.

5. I like to clean up my kitchen! I know, I used to hate it, now I like to keep it picked up!

6. I won't take the leaves out of our dinning room table. It drives my hubby nuts. He thinks we don't need it. I feel like if I take it out it means my kids won't be coming home for dinner. We still have two left at home, but we have 2 married and one on his own. I just want it big so that there is always room in case they drop in. I know, they don't even live in the same state as us. It's silly, but it's just how I feel. I probably still keep it in even after the kids leave home!

7. I love marshmallows! I love them out of the bag, burned over the campfire or toasted nice and brown. I really like them melted in my chocolate malt o meal!

8. I hate rattlesnakes! They creep me out and scare the day lights out of me when I see them! I try to do all my trail running early, early in the morning before it warms up and they come out. I have run into several on runs, and I HATE them!

9. I adore my 3 grandchildren! I think of them all the time and I love hearing them in the back ground when I talk to my daughter! They are getting so good at talking on the phone now! I also love pictures of them!

10. I have a hard time looking at pictures of my kids when they were little. It makes me sad that they're not little anymore....where did the time go? That's probably why I have so many pictures that need to be scrapbooked. I love my kids for who they are now and I love every minute I spend with them, but I guess I miss that they aren't around all the time like they were when they were little.

I came up with this recipe years ago when I was in a hurry to make dinner and didn't want to make a crust for the quiche. I've even made this without the meat. My two guys ate 3 pieces a piece last night!

Leftover's Quiche

1 cup any meat, cubed, I used Italian Sausage(removed from casings and fried)
1/2 cup chopped green veggie (I used zucchini)
1 tomato, seeded and chopped
1 small onion, sauted
1 cup cheese, grated, I used cheddar
1 3/4 cup milk
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/4 teaspoon smoky paprika
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a large pie pan with Pam.

In a blender mix the eggs, milk flour, baking powder and spices. Layer the meat, veggies and cheese in pie pan. Pour milk mixture over all. Bake 50-60 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.

Here's a contest for you. Head over to Fireflies and Jellybeans to win some Brea Marie Creations!

Carol- Thanks so much for choosing ME! You are so thoughtful! I loved reading those things about you- if I accept this award will you come do MY laundry?!?!?! That is the one thing I despise more than anything else in the world!
