Mama Z's Healthy Recipes

Traditionally a breakfast meal, our family enjoys this wonderful quiche dish every Monday for dinner. I find it super helpful to make 4 at a time. With 3 kiddos running around the house, sometimes I don't have the time to whip one up on the fly and this gives me some peace of mind knowing that I have a month's worth of Monday meals stored up. It may take a while, but be patient with yourself. Schedule some time the FIRST Monday of every month to put these together. Trust me, you'll be thankful you did later when things get crazy!

Thank YOU Jesus for Storage Freezers! 🙂
