The most important meal of the day…

I love breakfast! It truly is the most important meal of the day for me. I could go without eating lunch, even forgo dinner if my waist band demands it but never could I give up breakfast.  I need a real true breakfast too, something that is going to keep me full and satisfied. I’ll never understand people who can skip it or just have cold pizza or chinese take out left overs for breakfast, ugh… that is not what I dream of when I envision my favorite meal time. I do allow myself to indulge in the sweet goodies like pancakes, pastries, etc. however my true love is eggs. I feel like I can tackle any day as long as I’ve had a proper breakfast starring eggs. 🙂

One of my favorite egg dishes to prepare is a quiche. It can be eaten at breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and typically lasts a couple of days. My favorite go to quiche recipe is simple and delicious: Broccoli Cheddar….yum….
