OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!  Do you even really realize how good one of those tastes?  Well, you might if you only get to have one every few months I like do.  I get to right now because I am back in California introducing our four month old to our families for the first time.  While doing this, we get to eat at all our favorite places and the ones we miss oh so much.  I just can’t wait until I get to eat fresh never-before-frozen chicken, ah yummy.   But for now I will revel in the fact that I just had an awesomely fantastic cooked tortilla over the open gas range.

Oh the simple pleasureful flavors in life.

These was one of the easiest versions of quiche that I have made.  Also, so cute using a three leaf clover to cut out the biscuit dough and using it as the cup.  It fluffs up nice and still keeps the shape.  I might use a larger cookie cutter next time so to make a bigger and cuter clover.  Until next year…
