Quiche Cups



Well once again there was a gap in between posting.  It was for a very good reason.  My Mama came to Boston to visit! It was a great long weekend showing her everything we love about this city.  On Saturday we drove to Newburyport, MA.  What a beautiful town.  We left the house very early so I decided to make these little quiche cups that would be great to travel with.  They were quick to make and easy to eat in the car.  Not much more you can ask for.


A couple of weekend pics: Center going clockwise: Me at an antique store playing dress up, Me, Mama and Jeff once again playing dress up, Mom and I at Newburyport, Jeffrey enjoying a pecan roll at Cafe Vanille in Beacon Hill.

Try the quiche cups when you want a healthy carb-less breakfast on the go.  Or a beautiful brunch with family these would work fantastic.
