We filled my birthday weekend with delicious food and nice (if warmer than my ideal) biking.
We transformed a large Swiss chard harvest into this Quinoa and
Kale Swiss Chard Crustless Quiche that I saw on One Hot Stove a few weeks ago, with a side of broiled asparagus to round out the meal.
I doubled the recipe and made two quiches — relatively easy and seriously delicious, all three of us devoured our pieces and went back for seconds. Matthew said it reminded him of a grown-up take on broccoli-rice casserole.
Good thing Sir likes grown-up food!
For my birthday, I requested chocolate pudding cake, and Matthew executed perfectly (recipe coming later this week).
Later in the day, Sir headed out to Grandma’s for a sleep-over, and we pedaled eight sweaty miles (that I wouldn’t have traded for eight air-conditioned car miles) . . .
. . . to Dinner & Bikes.*
With the sun setting and shadows lengthening, our return ride was a bit cooler, and we further cooled things off with some frozen yogurt.
Despite reading about them for well over a year on other foodie blogs, this was my first trip through a self-serve fro-yo and topping bar — a fun ending to a fun day!
*More on the event in a later post.
Belated happy birthday! So glad you enjoyed that delicious greens and quinoa quiche.
Thanks for the wishes and for sharing the recipe. It worked very nicely with the Swiss chard and the cheese I had on hand (a creamy Havarti which I subbed for the cream cheese and a Gouda and an aged Swiss which I grated and used in place of the cheddar).
Happy belated birthday!! So many good eats 🙂 I am getting hungry!
