Good morning J!

If you recall, I mentioned about J returning from Indonesia after a week of relief work. Unfortunately, he was sucked back to work the following day, without a day of break in between. I felt terrible for him and decided to start his Sunday, by greeting him a "Good morning, dear!", with a breakfast of quiche!

I had made one a while back ago and was intriqued by the simplicity this savoury pie, simple to make once you get your hands on some shortcrust pastry. J loved it so that was encouraging me to make another one too.

The only difference this time around was the ingredients that went into the quiche. Since this is such a forgiving dish, I used whatever I had handy, that I thought would go well together. What ended up into the pie was (listed in order of addition into the pie) mozzarella cheese, shredded iceberg lettuce, picnic ham, sliced tomato and a bit more mozzarella cheese.

Looks delicious huh? The mozzarella cheese was not as full-bodied as cheddar so you probably want to add more seasoning in the egg/milk batter.

Mozzarella & Ham Quiche

- enough shortcrust pastry for a 10" tart pan
- 1 block of mozzarella cheese (200 grams) , shredded
- 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 3 medium eggs
- 1 cup whole milk or light (25%) cream
- 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 cup of shredded lettuce
- 1 large and plum tomato, thinly sliced
- pinch of salt & pepper
- 3/4 cups chopped ham

Preheat oven to 350F or 180C.

Roll out pastry and line your tart pan. Leave in refrigerator while preparing the rest of the ingredients.

Lightly beat the 3 eggs then add in pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk in the milk and 2 tablespoons of flour.

Coat the shredded cheese with 1 tbsp of flour. Retrieve pie crust from fridge and start piling the cheese at the bottom. Leave a handful of cheese for the topping. Then spread the lettuce all around followed by the ham. Finally, spread the sliced tomato evenly and finish off by pouring in the egg/milk mixture. Sprinkle the remaining cheese all over the top and pop it into the oven for 45-50 minutes, until the top is lightly browned. Allow quiche to cool for about 30 minutes before slicing into wedges. Best served then, while it's still warm.

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!

[Mommy Post] Accidental Booster Alert!

If you are a breastfeeding mommy or pumping mommy, you will understand when you find a milk booster, it's like striking lottery, right?
So my hub has actually been drinking this V-Soy multigrain for quite some time, so it has a regular appearance in our fridge.  I tried it but found it to be too sweet on so I never drank it after.

One fine day, I had a small play date at my place, and I served this drink to the mommies (because all rejected my first beverage of choice - coffee) to them.  One of them reported that she had higher output and that struck up a lot of other mommies' interest to try (including myself!).  Glad to report, it does help me, but not exponentially as I still don't take a lot of it, just a small cup.   What a small cup did for me - I take a shorter time to pump the same volume and at sometimes I do get about 10-15ml more.  I reckon if I do drink a bigger cup of it, it would be even better?  But no, I didn't choose to do that because it is very cal…
