Spinach and Feta Quiche


So, to save money on our weekly grocery bill, we have a meatless dinner night. In my house, there is some hesitation when dinner does not include meat. This one though, was received very well. Maybe because cheese makes everything yummy or because eggs can be so filling for less than a dollar. The best thing about this recipe is that it can be change to include what ever vegetables are on hand and cheese that may be in the fridge. I've already tried broccoli, and it was great. And of course, Honey said it would be even better with bacon, but the point is to be meatless.


SPINACH AND FETA QUICHE
servings: 6

vegetable spray
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
5 eggs, beaten
1 cup crumbled feta
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a casserole or pie dish with vegetable spray.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onions and garlic until softened. Add spinach and heat through.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, cheese, salt and pepper. Add spinach mixture and stir to blend. Scoop into prepared dish.
Bake in preheated oven until eggs have set, about 30-45 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Arroz con Gandules

My family came to the US in the late '70s, and adapted well to the Thanksgiving Holiday; after all, it was another excuse to have a party.  And because turkey was eaten for Christmas, I remember Abuela making the same Salvadoran Christmas dinner for Thanksgiving.  Thanks to my dad Puertorican food was a must growing up, so it was always a very diverse event.  As time went on we learned more about American customs and began incorporating the sweet potato casserole, made by my aunt every year, and the green bean casserole came way later in my life (my absolute favorite).
Now that the holidays are approaching and we have my mother-in-law here for the holidays, I decided to make a Puertorican dinner for the week before Thanksgiving.  I made a Pernil and Arroz con Gandules along with a very simple lettuce, tomato, and onion salad. It turned out fabulous.
There is an easy* way of doing every day arroz con gandules, but because this was not an everyday meal I made a sofrito first and to…

Pernil

So, if you haven't gotten your Thanksgiving Turkey and put it to defrost, it may be a little late.  I have an idea, though....make a Pernil or Pork Butt (not a ham, but actually the shoulder of the pig).  If you really want pork, but can't afford the pricey ham this is the way to go.  At home I'd get one for 60 cents/pound, and here they happen to have it for a week at my favorite discount grocery store at $1.50 a pound.  I snatched it up even though it wasn't in my normal grocery budget.  Now, this week when the budget is really tough with Thanksgiving around the corner, with a 10 pound pork butt, I managed to get 3 meals from it (maybe it'll be 4 by the weekend).
Pork is almost a staple in our household and it definitely was while growing up.  I have to say, Puertoricans know how to roast pork.  I will never forget the trip I took to Puerto Rico, and the day we had in the mountains where they had a whole pig roasting on a giant pit.  Then my dad and his best fri…

Holiday Turkey and Pan con Pavo

As I've mentioned, my mom's side of the family is from El Salvador, and although they weren't able to bring much, they brought there oh so yummy recipes.  My absolute favorite, and something I look forward to ever year, is the Christmas Turkey.  Once in the US, my family adapted to the customs of Thanksgiving dinner, so it became a Thanksgiving and Christmas Turkey.
Our turkey is the best turkey I have ever eaten, and we have introduced it to so many other people that end up loving it. If you're thinking of making a Turkey for Christmas, here's the best turkey recipe ever.  Along with the best pan con pavo for the day after.
Truly enjoy; especially the olives!
