Snowmaggedon

I think I'm repeating myself when I say there's nothing better than shacking up inside all day cozy and warm while the snow blusters all around us. I'm feeling equally justified about blowing the Snowmaggedon horn yesterday to anyone who would listen. I've never heard such laughter. I do like to say Snowmaggedon. It's catchy. Snowmaggedon is a GIFT! Last minute knitting is getting accomplished. I baked a yummy simple quiche. Later, the girls and I will bake more apple & pear crisp. Hey, want my quiche recipe? It's really easy.

Basic Quiche

1 store-bought pie shell
1-1/2 cups of cream
3 eggs
pepper
salt
nutmeg
shredded cheese

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In the pie shell, toss the shredded cheese (this is the time to add bacon, ham, broccoli, mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, etc.). Whip up the cream, eggs and seasonings in a separate bowl (I have a handy dandy shakey thingee), and then pour over your quiche fixings into the pie shell. Stick it in the oven for nearly an hour. Remove it from the oven, and let it set for about five minutes. Enjoy!

I started this little shrug ages ago, and I picked it up from the mountain of discarded projects, and I finished it in an hour. Thank you, Snowmaggedon. It will fit B perfectly! I just hope she wears it.
My mum came over after work one night this week, and while our tomato soup from scratch simmered, we beaded 11 pairs of earrings. This, my friends, is truly addictive. And fun for the whole family. When I say 'we' beaded, I mean little B beaded and my mum crimped while I shouted out orders like, "Those two beads with that little bauble in this exact order!!" and "Could you go any faster???". Okay, maybe not that militant, but I didn't really do much but watch the soup simmer. As B would say, "Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy."
Happy Friday!

Those earrings are gorgeous. Have they been gifted or sold? If not, can I buy them? I heart earrings. Those rock. Do you sell them online? Etsy?

Mmm your quiche looks delicious. I am craving some now!
