Quiche cups and beef sticks

A hurdle looms for the localvore family this weekend. We're heading for an overnight trip to Milwaukee on Saturday to attend a family wedding.

It's going to be tough to resist the reception buffet and cake. We'll have to settle for toasting champagne flutes filled with local water. My wife and two daughters and I will pack a cooler with our own food, like apple juice, beef sticks and quiche cups.

I made up a bunch of quiche cups ahead of time using cupcake tins. I used eggs, cheese, spinach and garlic-sauteed onions. The recipe came from the South Beach Diet book. They work great on the go. You can freeze and unthaw them for school lunches.
