Always Quiche Me Goodnight...

Every year around this time I get a hankerin for Quiche.

I think it's because in my head Christmas is right around the corner {yesimoneofthose} and at Christmas mom and dad always made Mini Quiches to go with our food feast while we opened presents.

I'm pretty sure they resemble these:

So... fall=almost Christmas=Quiche time.

So one year I decided to make my own Quiche out of all of my favorite ingredients. Every time I made it I ended up adding something new. Random things. Like feta cheese.

It was a science experiment in the making.

And then it became this big shmorgishborg of wonderfulness.

So, of course while I was whipping up this treat that's perfect for Fall but reminds me of Christmas, I HAD to listen to Michael Buble's new Christmas CD. HADto.

And it was glorious.

Now there's no stopping me. Hello made-for-TV-Christmas-movies. Hello Christmas music. Hello beginning of Pinterest Holiday madness.

Yes, I know it isn't even Halloween yet. Guess what? Don't care.

Make this Quiche to begin decking your halls, or tricking your treat, whatever tickles your fancy!
