Simple Toiletry Organization Solution for Your Guests

While visiting my sister-in-law last year, I loved that her guest bath drawers were thoughtfully stocked with all the necessities that might have been forgotten while packing.  Then, last month when I was visiting my parents in Arizona, I noticed she had a whole basket of goodies in the attached linen closets for her guests too.  I was so thankful to find a razor which I forgot to pack! I decided I needed to make-up a little caddy of my own when I got home because it was such a sweet touch that made my stay that much better!

 

 

Our guest bathroom also serves our children daily so I knew my caddy had to be something I could stow away when guests were not staying with us.  I had an extra large glass jar and thought it would look cute sitting out, ready to greet our guests, but also easily storable, out of the way day to day!

 

Since we had guests coming for Easter, I got to work looking through my bin of travel toiletries and picked new items to add to the jar.  I also picked up a travel hair dryer.  I figured the compact size would be great for storage.  It could also serve our guests and  should I need to use it for trips, I could!  The hair dryer was the only item I had to buy!

 

 

What to Include –

I included things like Advil, nail clippers, shampoo & conditioner, body wash, bath soap, facial bar soap, a razor (not pictured), shaving cream, contact solution & case, toothpaste & toothbrush (not pictured), mouth wash, floss & kid’s flossers, a few make-up samples including mascara and perfume!  What else could be added?  Maybe some hair spray?

 

 

It really is such a simple little addition to our guest bathroom but I know first hand what a treat it is as a guest.  I have it on the counter now along with some towels and then when our guests leave, I can add anything that needs replenishing and then stow right below the sink along with our guest towels.

 

 

A simple but purposeful project for a Monday!  What do you do to make your guests feel more at home in your space?

 

Until next time keep on keeping on with a simple purposeful life!

Make Now Serve Later Easy Quiche Recipe

I love a good simple recipe and I love quiche so I am excited today to share this easy quiche recipe that can be tailored to your taste bud’s desires.  There are just 4 basic ingredients and then you can layer in extra ingredients to make it your own.  Every time I serve it, I am always asked for the recipe.  It might be easy but it’s so good!

The great thing about this easy quiche recipe is you can make it and bake it ahead, then just rewarm it when you are ready to serve.  It looks dainty on a plate and makes your tummy happy.  Can you tell I love quiche?  It’s also pretty hard to mess up which gives it major bonus points in my book.

Let’s get to the easy quiche recipe, shall we?

Basic Quiche Ingredients —

1 refrigerated pie crust
8 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheese
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees (quiche will cook for one hour)

Additional Optional Ingredients —

cooked breakfast sausage
Spinach
cooked, chopped broccoli
onion
mushroom
bacon


Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.  Then, crack 8 large eggs and 1/2 cup milk, whisk together.  At this point, I added in 1 cup cooked breakfast sausage as well.
Then add in 3/4 of the cheese, reserve a little bit back to place on the top of the quiche right before putting it in to bake.  Then mix all the ingredients together.

Place the pie pan on a metal sheet pan for cooking to catch any drips.  Then, carefully, pour the contents of the bowl into the uncooked, refrigerated pie crust.  Use the whisk to make sure the meat or optional ingredients are properly distributed.  Finish by sprinkling the reserved shredded cheese on top.

The most difficult part is gingerly placing the quiche into the oven without spilling.  Cook for 60 minutes at 35o degrees.  It is done cooking when you put a fork or knife in the middle and it’s cooked through.  It may rise while baking but allow the quiche to rest for a few minutes when finished baking.

I like to make 2 quiches at a time since the refrigerated pie crusts usually come in a 2-pack.  The last time I made this, I made an extra for Christmas morning.  I simply let the quiche cool and placed the quiche in a ziploc bag in the freezer.  The day before I will place in the fridge to thaw and reheat the quiche for 1 hour at 350 degrees covered with tin foil.  I can enjoy Christmas morning with my family and let my oven do the cooking.

I love to serve quiche with a fruit salad, cinnamon rolls, my favorite Trader Joe’s almond filled croissants or doughnuts.  Do you love quiche? What do you put in yours?  There are endless variations but the basic recipe is so easy and doesn’t take more than 10 minutes to whip together which makes it my kind of recipe.

What are you baking for Christmas Morning?  If you have company, this is a must have and make it now and thank yourself later.
