Roasted Vegetable Tart and Quiche

Two versions tonight – why?  I roasted a lot of vegetables and my pastry crust was not big enough, so I also pulled out a pre-made pie crust and made a quiche.

Really Yummy Brussels Sprouts for Two

I am really looking forward to spring vegetables.  I love winter squashes, sweet potatoes, and cabbage, but I am really ready for the freshness of the bright green spring veggies.  One winter vegetable I never seem to tire of, however, is Brussels Sprouts.  I love roasted Brussels sprouts, pan seared, steamed; I have even been…
