Sweet Potato Crusted Quiche {+Asian Food Fest}

I cannot believe that I have less than 6 weeks left of residency at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Eeee! I feel like it was just yesterday that we moved to Cincinnati for this journey and now it’s almost over. Earlier this month I took my pediatric dental board exam and have been in the process of finalizing the details for my job.  Once I am done with residency we will be staying in Cincinnati and I will be working at a couple of pediatric dental offices in the area, I cannot wait!

Husband and I are pretty excited about staying in the area; we will be calling Cincinnati home for the time being.  One of my favorite things about the area is all of the festivals.  With the weather finally warming up, festival season has begun. Wohoo! Last weekend we went to the Asian Food Festival downtown and we ate our way through it.   Do not judge. All that food, got in our bellies and everything was delicious.

Le’s Pho:  Pho & Crab Rangoon
Revolution:  Kimchi Poutine & Thai Wings

For dessert we waited in a forever long line for some mediocre bubble tea & a basil mango Street Pop that was on point.  Overall Asian Food Fest was a success!

Moving on to todays recipe! Husband was out of town one night so I decided to try a recipe I knew he wouldn’t be too excited about. I’ve been itching to try this sweet potato crusted spinach and feta quiche recipe and it turned out fantastic! The sweetness of the potato and the salty feta were a perfect balance to one another. Also! It reheated really nicely the next day at work.  Give this recipe a try, it will not disappoint.
