    I love using leftovers and repurposing them into something delicious. This looks wonderful, Peggy. Enjoy the weekend.

      Hi Kelly, thanks so much. Since our IACP webinar a couple months back on the food waste problem in our country, I have been making every effort to be more purposeful in my purchases and uses of food. I think the key is as you aptly indicated: repurposing into something delicious- for this is what all of us need to be inspired by, and simple ideas for preparations.

    That looks delish! Now that we are eating really healthy and cooking more my fridge is loaded with stuff like this to use.

      Hi Phil, so great to see you! The tart is easy and a good example on how to use up the foods already in ones fridg. You can even bake it in a round pie dish. Great job on your healthy eating efforts too!

    Hi Peggy, love the fact that you are not wasting a thing, I am trying to be so much better about it, seems to be so hard, I always over buy or over make.

    This tart is beautiful and full of all my favorites. I always try to have some pie dough or puff pastry available for dishes like this.

    Hope all is going well with you, Cheri

      Hi Cheri, thanks much. I love the focus theme on preventing so much food waste this year. Sharing the delicious foods does seem a good way to begin with oneself in the effort as well as to hopefully inspire others. I know what you mean on the food purchase dilemma, I’ve been working on that as well. Thanks for stopping by.

    Dear Peggy, what a beautiful quiche for dinner and all in the spirit of “loving your leftovers” – no doubt we will have a lot of fun cooking our way through more of Hugh´s recipe ideas….your version with healthy kale, tomatoes and cheese sounds absolutely fabulous and delicious and just right for all those ingredients lingering in the fridge and waiting to be turned into one crowd-pleasing treat such as your quiche!

      Hi Andrea, yes it is rather a spirit of loving your leftovers, or, also after an IACP webinar a few months back listening to the numbers on the volumes of food waste in this country, it was disturbing enough to at least be cognizant on doing the best I can.
