Julia's Sweet Quiche Recipe

This past Sunday, I, along with my family, celebrated my Pop's 62 birthday.

62 years old and still surfing! I hope to say the same when I'm 62. This past summer my Pop taught both my sister and myself how to surf. It was scary, fun, and extremely hilarious. Memories I will forever keep close to my heart. There are pics, but they involve things like bathing suits, surfboards, and awkward body poses. So, I don't think I will be sharing them anytime soon. Plus, my sister would find a way to hack into my blog and destroy any evidence of the event =)

About the birthday party - my sister made an amazing quiche. I am not a quiche person... at all! However, Julia's quiche was different in a great way. It's sweet and has sausage, shortbread, yellow & red pepper, garlic, and all sorts of ingredients that when combined make for a yummy quiche. Not only did I have 2nds, but I had 3rds =0
Here's the recipe...

Julia's Sweet Quiche

1\2 red pepper
1\2 yellow pepper
1\2 red onion
1\2 lb jimmy deans maple sausage
1 shortbread pie crust {pre packaged}
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cummin
1 tsp pepper
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp evoo {extra virgin olive oil}
1\2 cup of graded mozzarella
1\2 cup shaved Parmesan
