Yep, I think I am the queen of the crustless quiche! This one is made with egg beaters, egg whites and cottage cheese!

Lunch was corn chowder and a spinach salad:
I always love when cookbooks have the nutritional information – I was shocked that their sandwich alone clocked in at 980 calories! So mine was definitely modified. First off, they had a roasted red pepper blue cheese sauce that called for 1 cup of mayonnaise and 1/2 a cup of blue cheese!
My version? 6 oz. plain Greek yogurt, red pepper, 1 oz. blue cheese, basil, parsley, and salt and pepper:
I grilled the steak just seasoned with salt and pepper. The original recipe had you toss the steak in olive oil – I skipped that step.

While I still have camera envy because Nicole got a new camera for her birthday, turns out there are a lot of features on my camera I never knew I had! It helps to read your manual again after you become familiar with your camera!
Case in point – I never knew I had “labels” on my camera!
