The fridge must die!

So for whatever reason I decided I HAD to use up "all the leftovers" in my fridge.  Since I don't cook much, I never have anything practical left over.  This time I had about 3 quarts of quinoa, because I had the logic of "it takes as much effort to make a cup as a bucket" without thinking of what I'd do with the bucket.

So after googling, I found a recipe for Quinoa/Ham/Chedder/veggie muffins. I don't have a muffin pan....or vegetables....but I bought ham and cheddar. Why I bought ingredients to help me GET RID of ingredients didn't strike me until I got home. 

Anyway, basically you mix it all together with egg to bind it and bake it to seal it into a muffin/patty. I ended up with so much of it I just crammed it into a pie plate and baked it as is. All things considered, I think it turned out okay.

Corners cut:
No vegetables  ----Skipped them. Who needs vitamins?!
No cheese grater-----hacked at cheese block with a knife and tossed in shreds
Ham cubes too large at purchase----Will warn people to chew thoroughly
No muffin pan----Put it in a pie plate and will try to pass it as a quiche....even if it looks like something that fell on the floor and dried that way.
