Totally off topic - recipe!

Faced with the what's for dinner conundrum tonight I decided to make a quiche. I haven't made one in a while and didn't have a ton of ingredients available, but I made due with what I had on hand and pulled off a cheddar and tomato quiche. It came out great, so I thought I'd share the recipe.

You can follow the recipe or add other ingredients to make something different, as long as you keep the basic egg mixture the same you're good to go.

Tomato and Cheddar Quiche / 375 degrees, 40 min

Pie crust of your choosing - pre-baked for 7-10 min

4 eggs beaten
1-1/2 cups half-n-half
1 Tb flour
1 Tb melted butter, cooled
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
1 tsp Italian seasoning, crush thoroughly with fingers to release flavor

1 medium tomato, sliced super thin
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Pre-bake the crust and set aside. Beat the first 5 ingredients until fluffy. Layer the tomatoes and cheese in the pie crust and pour the egg mixture over the top. Bake at 375 for 40 minutes. The top should be puffy and lightly browned. Let stand for 10 minutes. Slice and enjoy.
