I just discovered an amazing book through BOOKS ARE FUN at school. It's the Taste of Home Freezer Pleasers book. It has all these recipes that just look delicious. But on top of that it has instructions on how to make meals ahead of time and freeze them or just eat them now. I've been looking for a book like this for a while now. I'm pretty excited. I made the Three-Cheese Kielbasa Bake last night. I made a small amount to eat as lunch all week. But then froze a 13 x 9 casserole size dish to eat for dinner next week. Love it!
One of the recipes was for Zucchini Quiche. I got up early before church and whipped it up. I wanted to bring food to the Young Marrieds Group that I help out with on Sunday mornings. We provide a light breakfast for them such as muffins and fruit. But the group loves it when we bring hot dishes. So I wanted to try out this new recipe and also bring a nice treat for everyone. I made enough for two dishes and it ALL got eaten. Awesome. I love that feeling when everyone enjoys your dish. Looks like I'll be using this recipe again and again.
