make it real

I put together a bowl of leftovers this afternoon for Jeremy’s lunch: mashed potatoes topped with asparagus, mushrooms, bacon, and gruyère cheese. I nuked it piping hot and handed it to him and his face lit up.

You see, Jeremy has been craving KFC’s famous bowl monstrosity based on the pictures he has seen in those annoying junk mailings we get in our box every two days. He has never tried one yet – and the reason I know this is because he is still alive.

It’s a bowl of KFC’s instapotatoes with gravy, corn, popcorn chicken, and cheese. *shudder* It looks really disgusting to me, especially that tricolor cheese crap.

This is what his lunch looked like today:

tiny bites

Nicole and Andrew came over for dinner tonight and it was a good excuse to play around with an appetizer idea I’d been tossing about in my head. I wanted it to be a little quiche-like in flavor, but without making mini quiches (remember, I am on a tiny foods or individual servings kick). So I deconstructed my standard quiche recipe: bacon, eggs, milk, gruyère, mushrooms, onions, broccoli, and picked out representative flavors and tossed them onto puff pastry.
