Personal Quiches

I adore cooking. I adore it so much that I have had to go above and beyond creativity lately so as to make things that are low-carb and/or low-fat. To clarify, I am dating a 135 lb 5'6 guy who can eat whatever he wants and not gain a pound. Sometimes he even loses weight if I feed him too often.

So really, I needed to realize that I can't eat like him all the time. I am not blessed with his racing metabolism. Either way, here's what I cooked up this morning using some scrap stuff from our fridge.


5 eggs (beaten)
1/2 cup sour cream
3 T butter (melted)
1/2 package frozen spinach
(at least I'm assuming it was about 1/2... like I said, just leftover in the fridge in a little Ziploc bag)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste.

Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (as much as you want!)

Mix top ingredients well. I found whisking them together works best. Spinach can be added sparingly or in excess, whichever you prefer! I tend to like a lot of Spinach, due to the fact that it's healthy and about the only green type of food I will eat.

Pour into muffin pan about 2/3 of the way full. I used a giant muffin pan for mine, but I'm sure it would work with a regular sized also. Or even a mini muffin pan for Hors d'oeuvre at a get together! Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 50 minutes (probably took much longer in a giant muffin pan as opposed to a smaller one) I baked them until they were lightly browned on top.

Dear ENV2, I hate you.

Dear My Phone,

I hate you. Sometimes, you are really nice to me. Like when my other phone fell in the bathtub, and you came to my aid just in the nick of time; turning on for me and letting me call/text the people I love. Then sometimes, you would wake me up just a little earlier than I set your alarm for, I knew it was because you realized I would be late to work again. Every once in awhile, you would ring on silent when I forgot to turn you on silent. I knew it was because you picked up on the fact that I was at work and would get in trouble if my phone went off.

Making Conversation in Public Restrooms

I really have come to no logical explanation of why this happens to me, but for awhile now I've noticed that women find it acceptable to talk to me while I am peeing. The more I think about this, the more it confuses me. I am not a very "friendly" person. That will probably be taken the wrong way. I mean that I do not go out of my way to make eye contact with people, smile at people, or talk to anyone unless I absolutely have to. When I happen to make eye contact with people, I feel like I have to give that weird ass half smile that seems to say, "this is absolutely painful to do because I have no idea who the fuck you are." (this smile never shows teeth... you KNOW what I'm talking about) Sometimes, this leads to a conversation of "How are you, today?". This could go one of two ways.

The Neverending Toy Story...2

I have now seen Toy Story 2 at least 20 times. For this, I thank my nephews. Or, in reality, Nathan. God forbid we watch any other "showwwww" besides Toy Story 2. I even volunteered to go rent the original Toy Story! No such luck.

So anyway, it really got me thinking about how much I think Toy Story is overrated. It's a good Disney/Pixar film for sure, but nowhere near my favorite.

Which brings me to my awesome thing for Monday... Disney Movies, and my top 5!

My Dad

My Dad.
I can't even imagine where I would be without him.
I started writing this on Father's day, but then I got interrupted by a family baseball game. So, since Father's Day fell on the 20th, here's 20 great things about my Dad. 20 things that make him the best man I know.

  1. He has 10 children. 
  2. He puts up with every single one of us.
  3. He still fishes with the baby of the family, even though when they started he was so tired from running around in the sun playing baseball.
  4. I can't remember a time when he didn't give us everything he had.
  5. He takes us to Cedar Point, where he has ridden so many kiddie rides that make him sick that he probably lost track about 20 years ago.
  6. He works 40 hours + every week so my mom doesn't have to work at all.
  7. He argues with me, but he's almost always right.
  8. He didn't kick me out of the house when he found out I had 2 tattoos.
  9. All he asked for and all he wanted for Father's day was to go to church with every single one of his kids and then eat breakfast.
  10. Out of all 21 years of my life, I can't remember a time my Dad didn't make it to a ballet recital, basketball game, volleyball game, race, or anything else I might be missing.
  11. I know he would do anything and everything for any of us kids.
  12. He and I enjoy 2 things, a good beer, and the Beatles.
  13. He is a man of God.
  14. He loves my mother.
  15. He is always quick with a joke to light up our day.
  16. He says good morning every day to me, even if that means being late to work.
  17. He sleeps on the couch on nights that I go out, making sure that I come in OK.
  18. He knows absolutely EVERYONE within a 50 mile radius.
  19. He built us a tree fort when we were little. He also built our house.
  20. He taught us how to add and subtract, play sports, and hammer a nail. We're very well-rounded children. At least I'd like to think we are.

My Dirty Dozen

1. Gone with the Wind. This movie will never get old for me, not even one minute of the 4 hours. I find that I relate with Scarlett a lot, which is probably why. Maybe not entirely, as Scarlett was kind of a heinous bitch to Rhett. So not in that way, but she's certainly free-spirited, loves her home, and a little bit of a firecracker. I am all these things.
