Made by You Monday -- Menus!

It's been a while since I shared the week's menus, so here's what's cookin' this week at my house.

Day #1 -- Grilled Hamburgers, chips, and baked beans
Day #2 -- Ham and Bean Soup, cornbread
Day #3 -- Grilled chicken, spinach salad with mandarin oranges, toasted pine nuts, and craisins
Day #4 -- Spaghetti with meat sauce, lettuce wedges with blue cheese dressing
Day # 5 -- Baked tilapia, succotash, and fresh fruit salad
Day #6 -- Bacon and cheese quiche, Morning Glory Muffins
We love quiche and this recipe is quick and easy and I usually have all the ingredients on hand (or something I can substitute -- it's a very forgiving recipe).

Bacon and Cheese Quiche
10 slices bacon, fried crisp and crumbled (you can use microwave bacon and even real bacon bits in a pinch)
1 deep dish pie crust (frozen, refrigerated, or homemade)
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk (skim, low-fat, whole, cream, whatever you have)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
pinch of cayenne (or black pepper if you prefer)
1 1/4 cups grated Swiss cheese

Following package directions for pre-baking pie crust. 
Preheat oven to 425.
Sprinkle crumbled bacon over the bottom of the crust. Combine eggs, milk and spices and well. Sprinkle cheese over bacon and ladle egg mixture over all. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Serves 6.
