Crustless Asparagus Quiche (Meatless Monday)

Asparagus with eggs, take two… Yes, I have a thing for eggs and asparagus. While a traditional quiche is ideal for Sunday brunch, this crustless version is perfect for a fast weeknight supper — just serve with a side salad and some bread. Of course, if you’re more prepared than I, you can make this with a pre-made frozen pie crust.

    If you live in an region exactly where the temperatures turn into bitter chilly, your dog can put
    on coats and jackets over sweatshirts and sweaters.
    For the most part, dogs that spend most of their time indoors and
    have become accustomed to their controlled environment or older ones, that are a
    little more sensitive, may need extra protection like dogs
    sweaters in very cold weather. Forecasting is done in the business world all the time; on
    the personal financial side, it’s a little different.
