Yes, folks, that is a pumpkin pie and a tomato and spinach quiche. Now, before you get too impressed, do know that those crusts are the frozen ones from Whole Foods, and that I have not baked or cooked anything in what feels like weeks. This was the least I could do.
I have had my heart set on a pumpkin pie ever since B and I made a quick trip to Costco last week and I saw them so prettily displayed in the refrigerated section. I've regretted not getting one ever since. I am going to eat a very large piece this afternoon piled high with unsweetened whipped cream. Just sayin'.
The quiche is a little bit of nostalgia for me. Right after JuJu was born, my friend Paula brought over a tomato and spinach quiche (and a yummy salad as I recall) and it was one of those perfect food moments. You know, when you are starving and something (preferably homemade with love) just totally hits the spot? That quiche, that day, tired from feeding and caring for a brand new baby, did it for me. Something tells me this won't be quite the same, but hey, at least I'm cooking again!
