Healthy Strawberry Milkshake

I found this recipe (& accidentally modified it) on heavenlyhomemakers my kids think they're getting dessert, but it's really healthy enough to count as breakfast. And easy too!

1 cup milk
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp maple syrup

(the original recipe also called for 1 cup cream, but I missed adding that & it was still good, though that would explain why we ate it w/ a spoon, not a straw LOL).

Put it all in a blender & blend it up, pour into a cup & enjoy!

Broccoli Bacon Quiche - Crustless

4 slices cooked bacon (or baco bits)
4 eggs
1 c half & half
1 c grated swiss cheese
2 c broccoli florets
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp lemon pepper
Preheat oven to 350. Beat eggs with cream and cheese. Stir in salt, garlic, lemon pepper & broccoli. Crumble bacon. Stir half into egg mixture. Pour into 9" pie pan. Bake at 350 for 30-35 min till knife inserted halfway between center and edge comes out clean (I had to cook longer using frozen broccoli & cheese). Top with remaining bacon.

Southwest Roll-ups

I'm not sure where I found this recipe, it was printed out (from Word) in a stack of papers I was going through this weekend, so we're going to try it tonight & see what we think:

Update: The girls loved it!! (Mommy, can we have this EVERY night?) And dh agreed that it could be added to the regular rotation (which is about as much "praise" as I can get from him unless it's super unhealthy LOL). I got 5 or 6 tortillas, filled moderately full, in a 9x13 pan. Once I use up my canned beans & start making the beans from scratch I'll add more beans & salsa and make a 9x13 and a 9x9 pan. These would freeze easily as well.

Mix 2 Tbsp salsa, 1 can refried beans, and 1 c chicken - cooked & cubed (will use vegetarian equivalent).
Spoon onto tortillas, place seam side down in 9x13 pan. Baket at 350 for 20-30 minutes. Sprinkle with 1 c cheese.
