I'm a rigid recipe follower. I've never been one to "throw things together" when it comes to meal prep. Oh but I do so love to try new recipes. No problem, right? Well, until the leftover ingredients from those recipes lose their "shelf life" and end up in the trash. Wasteful. I'm really trying to improve in this area. So, for tonight's dinner I looked through the fridge and decided that this recipe would be a great base for some of the leftover ingredients that were lurking around. I've made it before and the nice thing is that milk and eggs are the only requirement. The rest is up to you. Tonight's version of Vegetable Quiche includes red pepper and jalapeno from last week's Mexican Salad, sauteed onion, and monterey jack cheese.
The strawberries pictured above are from our local organic market and they are fantastic!
Do you have any tried and true "clean out the fridge" type recipes that you'd be willing to share?

  1. I don't know if it's a "clean the fridge" recipe, but I seem to often make random pastas on the days I can't think of anything else. Some noodles (whatever is in the pantry), pesto, pine nuts, feta or goat cheese, red peppers (roasted or otherwise), tomatoes (sun-dried or not), leftover chicken from the oft-purchased rotisserie chicken.

    And this is a very common dish at the house, also when I can't think of anything else to make. I always have the ingredients, it's super-easy and very tasty.
