Yes, it gets a little boring, but it wasn't about the food so much. It was about learning discipline and cleaning out the body. I can't go too much into it here (because it is religious based), but it was equally about the body, soul, and spirit. I'm glad I did it, but I'm also glad it is over. I learned a lot, and I will adjust some of my eating habits.

Just to settle a debate with a friend, what do you consider Dairy?

The Daniel Fast included only vegetables, fruit, nuts, grains, and water, so that would exclude what anyone would consider dairy. I was not allowed milk, yogurt, cheese, ice cream, powdered milk, canned milk, ice milk, butter--if it wasn't one of the things I listed as ok, it was not ok on the fast. I could have used soy milk, since it is not from a cow or goat or any other animal that gives milk.

My toothache subsided for awhile, so I went ahead and made my quiche. It was so easy.

I had looked up a bunch of quiche recipes, and noticed that the ratio of milk to eggs was pretty varied so i guessed that I had wiggle room.

I made a Bisquick crust, pressed up the sides of my little casserole dish.

I put grated Swiss cheese down as the bottom layer as cheese on the bottom is supposed to eliminate soggy crust.

Next some drained, thawed spinach. I just put down dollops all around, then some

cream cheese dollops between those of the spinach.

Another layer Swiss cheese.

I like the cottage cheese topping from my Hamburger Onion Pie recipe, so I mixed about a cup of cottage cheese with 4 eggs and spread it all over the pie.

It was wonderful.

The crust was 1/2"+ biscuit, nice and tender and done perfectly.

And, I DID forget the Nutmeg, even though I took it out and put it on the counter.

I'm going to nuke some shortly for breakfast and I'll try a sprinkle of nutmeg then.
