I get urges. I get urges to sew, to cook, to walk.... Well Friday I got the urge to cook - This urge wants to cook a lot. So on my way home from work on Friday I stopped at the store to pick up several items that I was going to need for my habit.
Half n Half
This will make a couple different meals/items.
First things first. We buy all our spices at Pensey's Spices. We get the catalog which comes with recipes. My DH (Dear Husband) had seen this recipe for salmon fillets with Foxpoint seasoning on it and Had to have it. I was making a list of what we needed to stock up on and things I wanted to try. Well the Foxpoint made it on the list but the fish was never bought nor a plan to make this meal that was so drooled over by my DH.
My urge to cook this weekend started with Butternut Ravioli. Which, of course, was going to include a Mascarpone Cream sauce, and at the bottom of the screen was a little icon for Salmon Penne with Basil Pesto Cream Sauce, Artichokes, and Asparagus. Yum. Knowing that I had leftover pie dough and ham the only thing missing from a delicious quiche was Asparagus. Three meals in one, perfect.
Salmon Fillet poached with lemon, covered with Foxpoint Seasoning and garlic in the fish poacher.
A poacher is not necessary but we got one as a gift.
Roasted Red Potatoes with onion, garlic, salt, pepper
Roasted Asparagus, Olive oil and cracked pepper
Since I made a pound of asparagus I had leftovers to go into quiche.
I am on Pintrest.com and I had found where someone had made quiche in a cupcake pan for taking as breakfast. Brilliant. I had left over pie dough from last time I made quiche, I had left over ham steak, and now leftover asparagus. This morning I made cupcake size quiches.
3 slices bacon
medium onion, chopped
~6oz of ham steak, chopped
~8 pieces cooked asparagus, chopped
1.5 cups half and half
nutmeg, salt, pepper to taste
Bake at 350 for ~25 mins.
As you can see I spilled some egg and I sprayed my pan all haphazard. The goal was to make delicious quiche not to have a clean pan at the end! And they did come out beautifully. I had two for lunch.
