Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Post-Storm Breakfast

Is everyone OK after the big storms yesterday? Wow... my friend D was just a mile from the storms and one of the tornadoes went directly over her farm. Praise God she is OK and our hearts break for the folks who lost everything. 

As I was pacing around yesterday watching the radar the only thing I could think to do was make a quiche. 

Quiche? Sure! What else are you gonna do with all those eggs. Now that we have more daylight my hens are laying like the dickens and we are struggling to keep up. Quiche is cheap, easy, and fun - what could be better than scrambled egg pie?

Especially if you make it with your own bacon, goat cheese...and asparagus (ok I got that at the store). Here is the recipe I loosely based it on

But then of course.... you need to have a balanced meal so I made brownies also. And then frosted them.. oh yes I did.

It was the perfect post-apocalyptic-storm-whew-we-are-all-safe breakfast.

Nothing yet from Nibbles but she's been laying around for the last couple days. And when she lays around the goat house...she really lays AROUND the goat house. I think she's got at least 3 babies in there - if not 47. 

Happy Saturday everyone!

I think that breakfast hits every step of the food pyramid! ;)

I am so happy to hear that you made it through safely! I have been thinking about you all morning.

It's so good to see that had a nice nutritious breakfast!

Brownies cure all

Ohhh, yummy! That looks like the best after the storm breakfast ever, finished with chocolate!?? Ohhh yeah!!! It was a scary time yesterday...we had literally 1 minute warning! And, I only had that from my son, who heard it on the radio! He called, I dashed the dogs into kennels, and ran to the window to see the tornado bearing down. And yes, I froze in fear! Thankful it missed us, praying for the ones it hit.

Coincidence - I made brownies and quiche (quiche Lorraine) this morning too - we too are feeling lucky to have been spared tragedy. Peace

Glad y'all are ok, and you sure had a great meal to boot!

Stay safe. Don't know that I would think about cooking up a storm being that close to the storm center. 47???? that sounds like an awful lot. Good luck.

David said...

Good to see you made it through. Brownies for breakfast? You are a rebel! ;)

Leontien said...

Yes praying for all those who are suffering from those horrible storms! I'm glad AND your friend are safe!

The quiche looks yummy!

Great post. I love asparagus. I did a bacon and asparagus salad recently. http://caroleschatter.blogspot.co.nz/2011/11/asparagus-bacon-salad.html

I food pyramid is mostly chocolate, meat, and pie, Autumn :-)

Thanks Robin, watching the footage of the hard-hit areas is just gutting.

You know it baby! Hi Linda!

HDA, we are sooooo glad you are ok!

Ruth, coincidence? I think not...just great minds thinking alike!

Hey 1st Man, it was a crazy day for sure...wow!

Hey Tombstone LS! I was glued to the radar all day. We knew we werent going to get hit until just about sundown - thank heavens! The storms fell apart when they got to us.
