Christmas Brunch Idea....Spinach Quiche

Well, the snow has fallen, and boy is it cold! Still baking up a storm,trying to get my cookie trays ready for tomorrow and catching up on Hospice Scrapbooking before we go on Holiday.


The next few days I will be posting some good Holiday brunch ideas. This vegetarian quiche is so good I could eat the whole thing. Popeye would love it for sure and Olive, because she likes to stay so skinny will appreciate the fact that it is low-cal. You can also make it crustless.....
