Impossible quiche?

Yesterday was a very long day, Squeak woke at 6am, and I had went to bed close to 2. It was a long day, but I managed to get an hour-long nap when Squeak had her nap. I thought I would whip up a pressure-cooker casserole, and   I wanted to put kidney beans in it, I loove kidney beans!

We had 500g (about a pound) of diced chicken, diced up 2 zucchinis, 4 carrots and 3 potatoes. I then added a 400g tin of each tomatoes, and kidney beans. I also added some vegie stock and some dried oregano. I pressure cooked it for about half an hour. Once it was cooked and the pressure reduced, I thickened it with some cornflour (cornstarch). It was delicious!

Tonight’s dinner was something I never tried before. I saw on an old episode of Masterchef Australia about Quiche. I haven’t ever made quiche, and it seemed quite daunting. I googled a few recipes, and one site suggested an impossible quiche. It has that name as it seems almost impossible that the gloopy mix will come out of the oven with a nice crust on the bottom, tasty middle and golden top. The recipe is HERE

Cue Success!! DaddyMopar has said he loved it, and I should make it again sometime. Squeak happily ate her serve, which is great as I love finding healthy meals, especially ones that are reasonably easy to prepare. Since I tend to prepare dinner earlier in the day (while Squeak naps is the most common time) the fact that it bakes for an hour isn’t a bother.

Have you made impossible quiche before?

Lots of love,

A bad cold….

This week hasn’t been easy, Squeak came down with a cold last Monday after a restless night’s sleep, and woke with a fever. She was still happy, playing with her toys, so I wasn’t too concerned. Tuesday she was worse, more cuddles and less play, with the low-grade fever still there. On Wednesday morning, still a low fever, so off to the doctors we go. We both needed antibiotics for the start of a chest infection, and sinus infection for me.

We spent most of the day on the couch, and lucky we went to the doctors, as Squeak wasn’t comfy before we went, but once she had her first dose of antibiotics she was up and playing for a little while, before a nap on Mummy’s lap. Poor lil poppet.

Thursday showed a remarkable improvement, Squeak was up and playing a lot, and catching up on sleep as well. My Mother-in-law came over and tidied up, as I had fallen behind in clothes washing, and tidying the kitchen. Also, she looked after Squeak. I tried to get a nap but I couldn’t sleep.

On Thursday night my asthma started playing up, and by Friday morning I knew I had to go back to the doctors. Luckily my family GP was in, as he knows my asthma history. My asthma stays controlled, until I have a bad cold or similar, then all of a sudden it is difficult to control. I had a injection of steroids, and now have a tapering course to keep it under control while I recover from my cold.

Luckily Squeak is on the mend, She has a bit of a runny nose, and occasionally a cough. It had been a hard week. My sinuses are taking a lot longer to recover, I have a doctors appointment tomorrow for a follow up. In this last week,  I cooked some very unusual meals, and my pressure cooker saved the day most days. I just threw in some meat and veggies, and most times a delicious meal was the result!
