Shop Local

Something Jack and I have grown more and more fond and proactive about during our time together is buying locally grown or produced things. From food to processed things. We are not yet in the place in our lives or at our hobby farm of the future that we can quite yet produce what we need to sustain ourselves, so obviously have to outsource.

Farmers Markets are one of my most favorite places to find these things. I like meeting the person that harvested what I will eat or use. I like knowing we can support another small business man or woman just like ourselves.

Langdon Family Farms is one of my favorite vendors at our local farmers market. At the market the sell eggs. AMAZING eggs. If you are able to get to their farm, you must. Jack and I go through eggs like no other, so it’s nice to purchase a staple from someone we trust.

This week I made a easy to heat up quiche, which helps me actually take the time to eat breakfast on busy mornings.

My favorite thing- cleaning out the fridge while I do this.

Any veggies that need to be used up, left over meat, or cheese all goes in.

This week we had some goodies from the garden that needed to be used before they went bad or weren’t fresh anymore so those were the staples.

I sometimes like to use a crust just to add a little something to it and sometimes I don’t!

Ingredients:

Crust – I use already made
Eggs
Milk
Veggies
Meat
Cheese
Herbs

I whisk the eggs and milk together in a bowl and then pour it into my crust. I then toss everything in that I chopped up.

In this specific quiche I used:

Mushrooms
Peppers
Spinach
Tomato
Basil
Thyme

I bake it covered with tin foil at 350 for 1 hour or until it doesn’t jiggle anymore.
Bake it with tin foil off for the last 15 minutes to crisp up the top!

Then I let it cool, recover and put back in the fridge for the week.

When I go to eat it I cut myself a slice and either warm it up in the oven or microwave, YUM.

Remember to shop local and support your local farmers!
