Things I wish I never had to tweet at 3:43 AM:
I have become convinced that my Type A personality is simply preparing me in advance for the realities of a crying newborn. By the time this baby comes, I will be an old pro at spending hours awake in the middle of the night, every night. I can’t even believe I’m functioning right now.
That’s the power of a yummy breakfast, right?
A few weeks ago, I attempted a twist of simple mini quiches using faux sausage and olives. The result was less than awesome – but this version is incredible. And so ridiculously easy.
Only four ingredients, too. After all, there’s only so much I can handle after Battle of Insomnia 2012.
The magic ingredient:
Channa Masala Mini Quiches
Ingredients (for two servings):
1/4 cup channa masala, defrosted
1/3 cup tightly packed and finely shredded raw baby spinach
3 tablespoons goat cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, beat the eggs. Add in channa masala and spinach. Stir to combine.
Pour egg mixture in a well-greased cupcake tin. Yields six quiches.
Top each quiche with 1/2 tablespoon goat cheese.
Pop in oven and bake for 25 – 30 minutes, or until browned.
Serve and enjoy!
Side note: When you are awake for a long time in the dead of the night, you realize how noisy your house is. My house creaks and clangs all night long (where DO those random squeaks come from?). My computer spontaneously restarted in the living room around 3 AM. James had a doggie dream; he must’ve been chasing a squirrel because he was panting and twitching. Maggie snores. And the Husband makes all sorts of funny noises. I may have been awake, but at least I was very amused!
