I've got the following cheeses leftover from my party: mozzarella, goat, gorgonzola (but I'm nixing that one, too strong I think), manchego, and another that won't go. I really need veggies in my life. I have to go to the store so anything is open. TELL ME THE QUICHES. I'll probably have a salad on the side too.… » 7/16/14 5:28pm 7/16/14 5:28pm

My *best* craft project is almost complete, but I need your help!
