more like five minutes + 4 hours of refrigeration.  I almost didn’t have this ready in time because once again i’m horrible at reading recipes all the way through before starting on it.  luckily i read this one at the time of day where i still had enough time to get it done before we left for our dinner party.

the pie was super easy to make and super easy to devour.  haha.

Pinspiration – numero cincuenta y dos

a few hours after i pinned this roasted tomato and goat cheese quiche my friend commented on it saying that when i make this she’ll have to be there to try it.  and that’s exactly what happened.  i made it and she ate it.

a problem i always have is not reading the recipe fully and completely before starting to make things.  i didn’t realize that i had to actually roast the tomatoes for about 45 minutes before putting the quiche together and so they didn’t taste quite like they should have. But it was still good.

I’ve made it once more this time roasting the tomatoes and everything as the recipe calls for and it didn’t really taste any different.  So it’s up to you.  haha.  If I do make it again I think I’ll add a bit more chives.  I’ve found that I really like the flavor of chives so adding more will only make it better.  haha.

Pinspiration – numero cincuenta y uno

Lasagna but in soup form!

This was pretty good but a bit too much work for the flavor.  I’d rather just make regular lasagna.  And eating the ricotta open like that is a bit overpowering.  I might make it again but it’ll have to be for a really good reason.

Pinspiration – numero cincuenta

These next few pinspiration posts only have one photo as I didn’t take pictures as I was making them.

The left side is the pinspiration – Quinoa stuffed Bell Peppers, the right side is Paul making chocolate lava cake.

These stuffed bell peppers are so delicious!  I noticed that the link to the blog site is unavailable so I’m hoping that I wrote the recipe down.  It’s pretty easy to make and very flavorful.  The first time I made them, however, I didn’t realize that I needed to cut just a sliver of the pepper off to make a cup.  I cut them in half and ended up with much more stuffing than I anticipated.  The stuffing itself is delicious so if you want to just eat that it would be good.

Paul was making chocolate lava cake for the second time and I was excited to share.  mmmm…his chocolate lava cake is divine!

pinspiration – numero cuarenta y nueve

I saw on pinterest that you can grow plants from lemon seeds and thought I should try it since we were using a lot of lemons.  Unfortunately the link to the blog that I saw it on is no longer.  But up there is the link to my pinterest page of the lemon seed growing.

Start out with some clean seeds.

I followed what the pictures looked like in the image saved onto pinterest and started with some small pebbles, soil, seeds, more soil, and then topped it off with more small pebbles.
image

a few weeks later there was some growth.  i took this picture of the growth that i saw but i don’t think this is from the lemon seed.  =(
image

these, however, are from the lemon seeds.  aren’t they gorgeous?!!?!
image

or maybe they’re not?  how can you tell?
image

i saw these “bumps” and thought they must be the lemon seed leaves!!!
image

this project didn’t really turn into anything.  i got lazy and stopped watering and so the leaves died.  then it became winter and it was too cold.  i’m going to say this was a pinterest success, though, because i did see some growth.  yay!  i may try again but this time be more diligent about watering.  haha.  we’ll see!
