Zucchini Quiche

By Greengirl @GrinGarl

The ironies of life. Yesterday I was telling you about the warming weather here in central Virgina and last night it snowed. Not too much but enough to make me sad. I don't like cold weather at all. Hopefully the sun comes out and everything goes back to normal.

As the weather was getting colder and the wind was blowing harder we were craving comfy foods. Zucchini are one of my daughter's favorite veggies and I try to cook some once a week. I've made all kinds of combo quiches but never zucchini one. I got the idea from a vegetarian cookbook. I changed the quantities here and there and came up with a delicious zucchini quicheZucchini quiche
