festive and filling

By now if your house is like mine, the stockings are hung by the chimney with care, the tree has been decorated, and a few presents may have even been purchased. If you are also like me, your to do list seems to be growing as the days til Christmas are dwindling. That means I like to make meals I can eat on for days. This Christmas quiche is just that sort of thing.
