So I thought that I would try doing my posts about the house in installments. That way you don't have to dedicate an entire day to reading about only my house, cause that just might get boring for some of you, or maybe all of you. I also created a new recipe today that I thought was fantastic so I thought that I would also share that with you. So here's my newest band friendly recipe:
Red Pepper Spinach and Feta Quiche (Crustless)
By all means go ahead and make a crust for this if you'd like, I just can't tolerate baked goods so I opt for everything crust/carb free to make life less painfull. I really wanted to include a picture of this but alas my camera is dead and the charger lies somewhere in my unpacked boxes...
What you'll need:
1 red bell pepper sliced, chopped however you want to cut it that's fine
2-3 cups fresh spinach (do yourself a favour and buy the stuff that's already washed and prepped in a bag)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup feta cheese
3 eggs
1/3 cup cream or milk
Salt and Pepper
Method: (Preheat oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit)
1. Heat your olive oil in a skillet. Toss in your red pepper slices and cook about 1 minute until soft.
2. Add spinach to skillet with peppers and saute until wilted and tender, again about 1 minute. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
3. In a bowl whisk together your eggs and cream/milk.
4. Into a casserole dish, pie plate or whatever baking container you have around (you may or may not want to spray this with cooking spray or something mine didn't stick but I can't guarantee yours won't) place peppers and spinach in bottom. Crumble feta over peppers/spinach and pour egg mixture over top.
5. Bake for 15 minutes at 475, reduce temperature to 350 and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until set and golden brown on top.
6. Enjoy! This made for me 4-6 band friendly portions depending on the day.

House Part 1
I haven't quite gotten sick of telling this story yet and it's been 2 months (yikes) since I got possession. So I originally wrote about having bought a house way back in the beginning of November. For reasons I opted for an extremely far away possession date, 90 days to be exact, mostly because my down payment was being gifted to me by my dad <3 and it needed to be in the bank that long blah blah blah. I digress, so about a month after signing I get a call from my lawyer cause she wanted to touch base and get things started well ahead of time to make things easier. In our conversion she made a comment something like "and you know about everything registered against the property..." At that moment I swear my heart skipped a beat, everything??? As far as I knew there wasn't anything registered against the property! Uh oh! Well it turns out the previous owner wasn't exactly truthful shall we say when it came to disclosing everything about the property and failed to mention that she was pending foreclosure, no biggie right?! I don't know if I told you that when I looked at the place she was there and between myself, my best friend and parents we couldn't figure out if she had some personal problems that needed to be dealt with or if there was more of a drug/substance issue that might explain her behaviour. Turns out that almost a month after the papers were signed her bank issued the foreclosure and a judgment was made that gave the bank permission to seize and sell. Uhmm... excuse me I already bought it?? Turns out that this was kind of the least of my worries. It wasn't until I arrived there on Feb 5 did the real fun begin. The whole foreclosure problem of hers really didn't end up effecting me on the end but it was an indication of how the rest of the transition would go.
I will leave you with that omen and will continue later with the rest of the story. This may need to be done in like 10 installments or something, cause I can't just tell a story I have to embellish it and make it ten times longer :P
