Soup and quiche on a cold southern day

    Today I whipped up some Chicken enchilada soup and Crustless spinach and asparagus quiche.  It’s been cold here lately and although we in the deep south can’t wait for the cooler temperatures, we are certainly not used to it.  To make up for that, I like to eat warm savory foods on these chilly days.

    2 cups of brococli

    1 cup of asparagus

    4 eggs

    Cut up onions and garlic.  Cook down until translucent.  Add chopped vegetables, stir together, season to taste and sprinkle with olive oil.  Cook on a medium to low heat, stirring often.
