Tomato Quiche

With the days getting shorter, I’ve resigned myself to the fact that this is where I’ll be most mornings.

I’ve put it off as long as possible.  I’m definitely an outside runner.  I love the peaceful feeling of running outside first thing in the morning.  However, at 5:15am it’s too dark out to continue my weekday runs.  So, I’m going the safe route and starting on the treadmill.  I did 2 easy miles this morning and it felt great.  I made sure to hydrate adequately yesterday and it paid off! 

Dinner tonight was an old recipe passed down from my Great Aunt Betty.  Tomato Quiche.  Very easy and healthy.

1 pack of mixed cheese

Place on cookie sheet and bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees.  This is so yummy and easy.  It’s great made in advance and re-heated.
