Taffy in a box

At some point a witty saying will materialize here. Right here. Watch for it.

Thursday musings

Sundance Trail Corral
Dinner time at the Sundance Trail Corral

Thursday morning, already. This week is going quickly!

I had a lovely evening yesterday. I didn’t really know what I was going to have for dinner, but while talking to my “bus buddy” on the way home, I got an immense craving for quiche. Don’t ask. There is no explanation. Quiche, while quite the edible dish, is not something that I usually think about. So, I popped off the bus at an earlier stop, and ran into the grocery store. They had single serving size frozen quiches, so I got one spinach and one ham and cheese and then went home.

Being too tired to make anything that resembled an actual decision, I cooked both of them. I made a salad while they were cooking and then had half of each one of them. YUM!!! I was really pleased and now I have very yummy leftovers for lunch.

I think that, this weekend, I may have to investigate making one from scratch. Any recipe hints or suggestions would be welcome!!

While the quiches were cooking, I turned on the Rockies game and worked on my second Leaf Lace sock. I had turned the heel while waiting for the bus, but then discovered that I had left my dpn’s at home so I couldn’t pick up the gusset stitches. I guess that it worked out for the best, really. The bus was really crowded, so it would have been difficult to “gusset” anyway. So, once dinner was baking, I found the proper needles, picked up the gusset stitches and started working on the decreases. I got all of the gusset done (decreased) during the game and I finished the gusset in the 8th inning (where, if I remember correctly, the Rox lost their lead and ended up in a 2-2 tie).

As I worked on cleaning up the kitchen, the Rocks allowed a run across the plate… BOOOOO!!! It was now 3-2, not in our favor. But, as I continued to clean, the Rocks got to the plate and WHAMO!!! They won, 4-3. It was a really exciting ending to an otherwise quiet game. The inning was so exciting that, when I ran out of kitchen to clean, I pulled out Mom’s stole and got a couple of rows in. There was NO WAY that I was going to be able to go to bed while that excitement was going on.

So, to recap: Yummy, easy to fix dinner; Excellent progress made on sock project; Clean Kitchen; Progress on Mom’s Stole; ROCKIES WIN!!!

Why can’t every evening be like that?????

  1. Go Rockies! Didn’t you love the group hug at the end, and the shaving cream?

    You would have thought they won the world series.

  2. Quiche does sound good…..may have to peruse some cookbooks. I have loved watching the Rockies this year…..well, love them every year, but this year it has been very exciting. Somehow they seem to pull off a win. Not in a big way, but by really working hard at it. They seem to really enjoy being a team this year, what a great example of sportsmanship. Go Rockies!!!!!

  3. That sounds like a great evening. I found a whole list of recipes for quiche at the Taste of Home Cooking for 2 site. You will have to find a small pan to bake them in however I think if you look around the site you can find a place to order them or who sells them.
