hey, soul sister

hey, heeeeyy, heeeyyy... hey, soul sister :)

again, my friends are flippin amazing! when stupid sh*t happens in my life, here they are to help pick up the pieces... and i love them for it.

mg and i text or talk several times a day, everyday. she is as close to a sister to me as my own sister. we've known each other since we were 13. that's a long freakin time! in dog years, that's like more than 100yrs.
dude! we're getting old.
well, yesterday we were texting about all the lamerific stuff that's been going on recently and she said "you deserve better and he deserves to be b*tch slapped". she's awesome like that, just tells it like it is. but she is SO right! i do deserve better. there, i've said it. i deserve to have someone be honest with me, that's like a total deal breaker.

anyway, i've been meaning to post this, but i wanted to make it at least one more good time to make sure i had it just right. so i made it last night and it was heaven on a plate.

heaven on a plate a.k.a. spinach and pesto chicken quiche
adapted from pillsbury

1 refrigerated pie crust
1lb cooked pesto chicken cut or shredded into bite size pieces
1box frozen spinach, thawed
1/2c shredded colby jack cheese
1/2c shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2c shredded parmigiano cheese
4 eggs
1c light sour cream
2tbs milk(i used soy milk)
1/2tsp salt
1/2tsp pepper
1/2tsp dry ground mustard

for the pesto chicken, i wanted to make it a little more figure friendly so i mixed garlic salt, black pepper and dry basil together and seasoned the chicken with that before browning it in olive oil.

layer chicken, spinach and cheese into the pie crust.
beat eggs, sour cream, milk and spices together until smooth.
pour egg mixture over the chicken, spinach and cheese.
bake at 375 for 35 to 45 min until it's not jiggly and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

the recipe says it's supposed to serve 6, but i think it could easily serve 8 for a nice lunch with a salad.

i had mine with a salad of baby greens and a glass of white zinfandel. yum!

[hearts] for las chicas!!
