Notes and A Quiche Recipe

I'll be stealing some time in the kitchen to make this yummy dinner tomorrow night.

If you want to see my menu plan for the week, I posted it on my other blog here.

On the Cooking During Stolen Moments blog plan for this week, I'll be posting a full game plan that includes Chicken Parmesan fingers and garlic spaghetti. I'll also be posting some more recipes that I'll be making throughout the week. And I will do a few posts on time management in the kitchen and how I stick to our $350 grocery budget. If you have any questions, recipe or full game plan requests, please let me know and I'll answer those this week too.

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and prebake empty pie shell in pie plate for 3 minutes.

2. Melt butter in a skillet. Add the green pepper and onion to the pan. Cook until onion is tender. Add frozen spinach and cook until warmed through. Set aside and cool.

Hi Kate, I just discovered your blog on Tuesday over at Tammy's Recipes. I'm really enjoying browsing your recipes. I've made the black bean rice bowls and my family of 6 loved them. I plan to try the quiche and salibury steak soon. I appreciate that you cook from scratch with frugality in mind! Thanks so much! Cathy
