{freezer cooking} Quiche Muffins


I have aspirations of having a freezer full of yummy food to pull out at random for my family's eating pleasure.  I have yet to make this happen.  However, occasionally I do whip up an extra casserole or something to pop in the freezer so that it isn't completely bare in there.

This past week I decided that having something easy for breakfast would be nice to have around.  Something besides Eggos, you know.  

So I thought why not make up a batch of muffin-sized quiches and freeze those!  I have a great Quick Quiche recipe that works great (no crust needed!) and it turned out well in muffin form.  I also used my handy silicone muffin cups which made the whole process unbelievably easy.  I highly recommend these!  My mom gave me this set so I'm not exactly sure where they came from, but I know you can find them online.

Just one batch of the following recipe made 15 of these muffins!  


Quick Quiche
3 eggs
1/2 cup Bisquick mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
1-1/2 cups milk
1/4 tsp. salt 
Pepper, to taste
1 cup shredded cheese, your choice
1/2 cup or so of cooked meat, your choice (ham, sausage, bacon, etc.)
1/2-1 cup of veggies, your choice (onions, peppers, broccoli, mushrooms, 
spinach....the list is endless--steamed or sauteed veggies work best).
*****
Mix eggs, Bisquick, butter, milk, salt, and pepper together very well.  
Stir in shredded cheese, any meat and veggies 
(although if you just wanted to keep it plain you can do that, too).  
Pour batter into your muffin cups (if using a muffin tin, I recommend
using foil liners).  Bake at 350 for 
25-30 minutes or until set and browned. 
Let cool for 10 minutes or so before removing.  
For freezing, I layered these in a Ziploc freezer bag with wax paper 
in between so they wouldn't stick together.  
(If you want to make one whole quiche, 
just pour this mixture into a pie plate and 
bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes).


Just take one out of the freezer and microwave for about 1 minute on defrost and 30 seconds at full power.

Making Notebooks

Recently I tried out a new craft idea~and it was SO much fun!! And extremely frugal, too. That's always a bonus, right? So here we go: 1. Take your basic composition notebook (purchased at the back-to-school sales for .99 each). 2. Go to your craft supplies and get your Mod Podge ready, along with a good paintbrush. 3. Look through all those scrapbook papers you've been randomly collecting and choose some. 3. After choosing your paper for the cover of your book and trimming it to fit, start *painting* the cover with the glue. Next, give the back of your paper a good coat of glue, too. (I left the binding uncovered so that I could use a contrasting paper there later on). 4. Glue it on! Remember to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. 5. Flip the cover open and make a few cuts on the corners so that they will fold over nice and neat, then add a little more glue to the edges of the inside cover and a little more to the paper edges. 6. Fold them over a

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second c

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left
