Sweet Savorings

Savor is my word for 2012.  Taking special notice and joy in the moments of everyday.  And sometimes savoring the bounty we have in our very own home.

In my quest to get the girls to eat more fruit and vegetables this winter (they would subside on a steady diet of cheese and cookies if I let them), I enlisted their help with dinner tonight and found some savory accompaniments via that time-sucking vortex: Pinterest.

First, I made our version of this, which just means I used more eggs and a steamer bag of broccoli.

And Belle who had turned up her nose when I mentioned broccoli quiche gobbled hers up and asked for more.  It’s all about the presentation.  I flipped ours out of the mugs, but Belle kept hers in.  She said it tasted better that way.

We also made these delightful crescents.  Easy enough for the girls to do, and I swapped out the strawberry jam for sliced fresh strawberries and some blueberries we picked this summer and keep in the freezer for such a time as this.

 My picture may not be as pretty, but these were delicious and don’t leave me craving any dessert tonight.
