Zucchini Quiche

One morning, I literally took this out of the oven about 15 minutes before I had to leave for work. It was too hot to slice, so I just wrapped it in foil and dish towels to transport it to work.

Once I got to work, one of the attorneys asked what I had. I told her it was quiche and when I said it had corn and green chiles in it, I think in the back of her head, she was like "Um, no thanks!" But she skipped breakfast. I told her if she didn't like it I wouldn’t be offended.
