A Bit of Yumminess

Some friends of ours had their third baby about a week ago. Everytime someone that was in our Bible study has a baby, we all coordinate meals for the family. I took sausage quiche, pumpkin bread, and cantaloupe this time. I know that they like this food and I thought it would be a welcome change from the typical casseroles or spaghetti-type foods. Want the recipes?? Just scroll down. They are so yummy!!

Sausage Quiche

1 roll of sausage, browned and drained
10 eggs
1 cup of milk
2 cups of cheese
2 frozen pie crusts, thawed*

Simply combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk until frothy. Pour into 2 pie crusts. Place into 350 degree oven and cook for about 45 minutes-1 hour.
*Most of the time I do not use a pie crust, I simply just pour the mixture into 2 pie plates or a 9x13 dish.

Pumpkin Bread

3.5 cups flour
3 cups sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1.5 tsp salt
1 tsp each cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg
1 cup water
1 cup oil
4 eggs
1 can pumpkin

Combine all dry ingredients. Beat the wet ingredients, then pour into a well of dry ingredients. Fold until combined. Pour into 2 greased and floured loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour or until done in a 350 degree oven.

Hope you enjoy these recipes!! I know Fall has officially arrived in our household once the pumpkin bread is baked.

My favorite is Grace like rain. That song is the story of my life.
My name should have been changed 8 years ago to Grace. ~♥ God is amazing.
