Asparagus, Tomato and Onion Quiche

School makes me busy.  Really busy.  Unfortunately, this year Mother’s Day fell on the Sunday right before final exams so I was going to be unable to go home and spend the day with my Mom.  Because I have the coolest Mom ever, she decided to make the trip out to Scrantonia just to hang out with my in my apartment for the day.  Since she was making the trip out, I obviously wanted to do something for her, so I decided to make a little brunch filled with quiche and muffins.  Sound ok? Great.

Quiche has become one of my favorite foods to make because it is SO easy and so simple.  You essentially can take a basic quiche and add whatever your heart desires to make it uniquely your own.  YUM.

It is common knowledge that during the spring and summer, asparagus dominates, so I really wanted to use Asparagus in my quiche.

1/2 pound Asparagus, trimmed

1 small onion, chopped

1 pint grape tomatoes, halved

4 eggs

1/4 cup of milk

1 cup cheddar cheese

1 pie crust

2) In a large sauce pan, heat oil

3) Add chopped onion and saute for about 2-3 minutes.
