Crustless Cheesy Potato & Spinach Quiche

Crustless Cheesy Potato & Spinach Quiche

Last night I looked through hundreds of photographs of us, our home, our family, Briana as a baby, old pictures and new. Every photo has a story to tell, every photo has something special and all of them with a memory attached. Looking through these snapshots of the past gives me feelings of insane satisfaction and happiness. It’s amazing how much we change as we age. Even when we take good care of ourselves the process of aging is inevitable. It’s the way of life. As I looked through those photos I couldn’t help but miss the days Briana was a baby. Her face has changed so much, yet her expressions remain the same. I simply could not imagine life without photographs.

I couldn’t imagine life without yummy food either. That’s why I cook.

Speaking of delicious food, this Crustless Cheesy Potato & Spinach Quiche is absolutely delicious. I served it with salad for dinner one night and it doubled up as a great lunch the next day.

    Kathy, you sound like me. I was just standing in front of the mirror with my son and he towers over me. In my head he is still a baby and I see him running and jumping around. Time passes way too fast! I told my husband we needed another baby…he laughed. Mostly because our youngest is 13. Haha So, dig through old photos instead. I love to show them to my kids and tell them stories that go with the pictures. I think they love it just as much as I do :D
    So this quiche looks amazing! I thinking this is one quiche my hubby would be happy to see come out of the oven. He loves loves potatoes :D Pinning!

    I was just looking through my family blog yesterday and scrolling through the images of our life for the past eight years. Time has flown by and seeing the pictures of my children change over that time was bitter sweet. I am so thankful for all the pictures we take!

    I am also thankful for this recipe… I love that it’s filled with potatoes. Hearty and delicious for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

    I feel the same way when I look at photos, and can’t believe how time changes us! I so miss when my kids were little, but thank goodness I took lots of pictures! You’ve managed to make a crustless quiche look better than one with a crust, and that’s a feat. I can’t wait to try this, pinning! Have a fantastic weekend. :)
