Easy Chicken Quiche Recipe | themodestmomblog.com

 

This easy chicken quiche recipe  is a staple at our house. It’s not something I make every week, but we have it probably once a month. Now if we were talking about burritos, that is something we have once a week. Or 2 times. I think I fall back on that extremely simple meal too often, some of my children are starting to groan when I say we are having burritos again. :)

If you don’t want chicken in the quiche you can always substitute it for a different kind of meat. We have had leftover quiche for breakfast, and breakfast sausage might taste good in it for a change.

Chicken Quiche Recipe

3 beaten eggs

1 ½ cups milk

¼ tsp salt

(We always use Redmond Real Salt and love the taste)

⅛ tsp ground pepper

½ tsp all purpose seasoning mix

(we prefer this mix which you can also find at Costco)

¾ cup cooked chicken, shred into bite size pieces

1 ½ cup sharp cheddar cheese, or Monterey Jack cheese

(I use sharp when I have it, but we still like it with Monterey Jack)

1 Tablespoon flour (I have used pastry or white)

Pastry for single crust pie

(You can use your  own favorite pie crust recipe, or if you are looking for a natural recipe then try this flaky whole wheat pie crust that uses coconut oil)

Directions

Make Pie Crust and bake in a 450 degree oven for 5 minutes. Take the pie crust out and cover it with foil, then bake it again for another 5 minutes. Take the crust out and turn the oven down to 325 degrees.

While the pie crust is baking, stir together eggs, milk, salt, pepper and the all purpose seasoning mix. Then add the chicken. In a different bowl, mix the cheese with the flour. Then add it in with the egg mixture and mix together. Pour it in the pie crust and bake in a 325 degree oven for 35-40 minutes. It needs to stand for 10 minutes before serving it or cutting into it.

I like to use a quiche pan instead of just a pie pan, as it has more room for the filling.

I serve it with cooked broccoli, or rice, or a salad.

A Christmas “Style For The Season” Blog Hop!

Style for the Season Blog Hop! | themodestmomblog.com

It’s 20 days until Christmas. Stop and let that sink in for a minute! December is already starting to go by very quickly. We are attending a dress rehearsal performance of the Messiah tonight. My sister sings in a large performance put on by the Kansas City Symphony. It’s always such a moving performance and I’m looking forward to going!

I love December for the concerts, the cookie bakes, the special church services, and the extra special time spent with the children. On top of all that, I love wearing outfits with Christmas colors!

Some blogging friends and I wanted to put together a blog hop and share with you some different modest Christmas outfits that are appropriate for different occasions. Some of the other bloggers who share are expecting babies, so if you are pregnant you will definitely want to visit the links below for some maternity outfit ideas!

I took these photos indoors, right when it was getting dark. We had two days of major plumbing issues, and only my oldest son was available to take them, so this was the best I could do! :)

A black shawl adds a dressy look to so many different outfits! | themodestmomblog.com

I am looking forward to wearing my black pashmina scarf I got off of Zulily last year. It adds such a dressy look to so many different outfits, plus it is warm for the cold nights! I’m wearing the scarf to the Messiah performance tonight.

A wool skirt in Christmas colors is perfect to wear for church, concerts, or a nice dinner out!

Wool skirts are nice to wear when the days and nights are colder. This skirt was from Kohls, and I see this style at J.C.Penny, Kohls or Cato’s fairly often.

Flexi clips are so easy to use, and add such a pretty look to every outfit!

I don’t always have time to fix my hair, even for nicer occasions. If all I do is pull it back in a pretty flexi clip then I’m happy. Curling it with my hot rollers is a nice bonus!

Perfect Pearl Gift Set from Mialisia

The earrings and necklace I’m wearing are from Mialisia. They have put together some beautiful gift sets, and the set above is called Perfect Pearl. When you wear Mialisia jewelry there are no more Lobster claws or clasps. Each of the versa style pieces have very unique hooks on each end.

Those special hooks gives you the freedom to wear each piece at the perfect length to go just right with every outfit! And it means you can mix and match pieces together to create unique looks to fit your style!

The earrings are called Carolina, so of course they are some of my favorites. :) I like the vintage look to them.

L'BRI Holiday Compact Makeup Case - Perfect For The Holidays!

The Mini Holiday Compact from L’BRI - only available through December.

I know a lot of women are busy mother’s and feel like they don’t have time for makeup. I’ve been wearing more makeup lately. Whenever I put it on I get compliments from my husband on how nice I look. I keep it simple, but even just putting on the dual action foundation from L’BRI covers so nicely that it makes an obvious difference.

Dual Action L'BRI Foundation

I think I have my makeup routine down to around 5 minutes, and I’m sure we all have an extra 5 minutes to spare if our husbands like it! I know some husbands do not like makeup at all, so obviously make sure your husband likes your look. :)

When I started wearing makeup, I was a mother to three young children. I felt exhausted and looked it. Finally I asked my husband if he minded me wearing a little, and he didn’t. It’s taken me several years to feel really confident in applying it – I didn’t grow up wearing it so I’m starting from scratch! When I recently switched over to L’BRI makeup, that’s when I finally felt very comfortable in the look I was getting. I want something that looks natural and not caked on.

Another holiday look that I love is a solid red wool skirt that I found on ThredUP. I shared some pictures with this skirt on my Modest Monday post, but I thought I would share it here also.

Educational Gift Guide!

Christmas time is an excellent time to give your children an educational gift! This year we are giving our children four gifts each, one toy, one educational item, one book and one clothing item. It has been so much fun picking out educational items that I want to give them, and I’ve found it incredibly hard to narrow it down to just one gift per person!

Below is an educational gift guide for ages 1-16.

For Little Ones

(1-5)

OBall - Perfect for babies and toddlers!  | themodestmomblog.com

 

1. OBall - This soft, squishy ball is idea for little babies and toddlers. It is easy to throw and catch, it can be chewed on, twisted, and stamped on without injuring it at all! Throwing and catching balls is good eye/hand coordination for little ones.

A-Z Magnatab | themodestmomblog.com

2. A to Z Magnatab – We have this and our 3 year old loves playing with it. Even our almost 2 year old will sit and use it. The magnets work well, and I like the arrows on it showing the proper way to write the letters.

Moore Family Films - ABC Say It With Me Bible Memory Verses | themodestmomblog.com

4. A-B-C Say It With Me Bible Memory Verses – I have been so excited about this DVD ever since I watched the preview a few months ago! The DVD teaches children of all ages (and adults too!) a memory verse for each letter of the alphabet. But that’s not all!  Each letter also has a corresponding one to two minute vignette showing a visual depiction of the verse put into practice. It is 55 minutes long and the preview looks ever so sweet!

Camelot Jr. Brain Challenge Game.

5. Camelot Jr. – I have started including brain challenge time in our school days for my older boys. This is a brain game I want to get for my little girls, as I think they would love the princess aspect of it. But a boy would like it also for the castle and prince! Follow the directions in how to put together 48 different challenges.

Automoblox Wooden Building Cars!

6. Automoblox – These wooden cars combine the challenge of building, puzzle skills, brain concept of how to put together a vehicle, and then the pretend aspect of actually playing with the vehicle! I’ve heard nothing but good things about these cars!

For The Middle Years

(6 – 10)

Perplexus Brain Challenge Game

1. Perplexus – A maze game where players must maneuver a small marble around challenging barriers inside a transparent sphere. You shift, flip, and twist the sphere to guide the marble through. I’d say this is for ages 8 and up.

Banagrams

2. Bananagrams – I have an 8 year old that loves to spell, so I’ve been meaning to get these for him. Players race against each other to build words. I’ve also looked at the Bananagrams for kids book, and love the challenges presented in it.

Boogie Board. And LCD Writing tablet for children!

3. Boogie Board – I’ve only recently seen this item, but as soon as I came across it I knew my children would love it. It is an LCD writing tablet, that you can easily write on with a stylus (included) and erase with the touch of a button. I can see this being used for math, spelling, note taking, and lots of doodling time!

Snap Circuits Lights

4. Snap Circuits Lights - My son received a set of Snap Circuits when he was 8 and he loves them! They provide hours of educational fun while building different creations. It is really amazing what you can do with these sets!

Enginos Simple Machines

5. Enginos – We all know that children love to build things. With the Simple Machines set you can build sixty working models! For ages 8 and up.

For the Older years

( 11 – 16)

Metal Earth

Construct the sleek, high-tech car and then use your tablet or smartphone to control the car’s motorized wheels and steer it in any direction. On your device’s screen, watch the car as it drives through a virtual, augmented reality cityscape.

Alcatraz brain game

3. Alcatraz - Can you dodge watchful security cameras and make a daring escape from prison? You are locked up in a high security prison. Surveillance cameras are…everywhere? Not quite! One stretch of the wall around the prison compound is surveillance-free, and that’s where your accomplice has put a ladder! Can you arrange the pieces to make your escape?

Laser Maze

4. Laser Maze - Laser Maze by ThinkFun is the first single-player logic game to feature a real laser. Players reflect and split the laser beam using mirrors and targets on a puzzle grid to reach their goal.

Modest Monday Outfit2

It’s Monday again! This past week was a busy week. I hosted a L’BRI open house and had fun with a few friends who came over for facials and makeovers. Saturday was our wedding anniversary (11 years!) and I spent the day with Sean at his college, as he worked on a big project. At least we were together! Sunday was Israel’s 8th birthday, which I can hardly believe! October is a very busy month for us. 

The outfit below is what I wore on Saturday. I spent the afternoon in a computer lab at college, and it was super chilly! Thankfully I had brought a white pullover sweater along, so I added that to my outfit for the afternoon. :) I am out of my walking boot now (hurray!!), Sean just cut my feet off on accident in the picture. :)

Jean Skirt and Halftee with Tank

 This is the denim skirt I got from ThredUP. It’s nice to have basic, sturdy denim skirts to wear for everyday. My outfit could use a scarf or necklace, but I was in a hurry to get out the door and ran out of time. 

French Twist With Flexi Clip

 I twisted my hair back into a medium Festive Fallen Leaf clip. The tutorial for this hairstyle is coming Thursday! 

What I Wore

Denim Skirt – Christopher & Banks brand from ThredUP (used clothing online)

Brown Tank – Kohls

White Halftee – Deborah & Co. 

Brown Mary Jane Style Shoes - Zulily

Earrings – Rowen Cream Earrings

Flexi Clip – Festive Fallen Leaf from Lilla Rose
