Dinner: Wednesday, January 7

Bacon and Spinach Quiche with Baked Potato Crust
Romaine Salad with Roma Tomatoes and Asiago
Total Cost: $3.65

For the quiche, slice up a half pound of bacon and cook it. If you're an onion-lover, then dice up a half onion and throw it in after the bacon is mostly cooked. Defrost half a 10 oz package of frozen spinach and squeeze out the liquid. In a bowl, mix 8 eggs, a cup of milk, the drained bacon, and spinach. Pour it into the--whoops! You make the crust by shredding a couple baked potatoes (quick nuke them in the 'wave) then shred them with a cheese grater, add a little bacon grease, a few Tbs. of flour and a bit of salt, then mix lightly and press into tart pan. Phew! Now you can pour the filling into the crust and bake for about 30-35 minutes at 350.

This salad is a quick classic. Cut up some lettuce. Cut up some tomatoes. Grate some mighty powerful cheese on top (Parmesan, Asiago, or Romano--these cheeses were meant to me used in small quantities). Microbrew a batch of vinaigrette and baptize your salad.

What are you having for dinner tonight? How much did it cost?
