Acorn Squash Quiches

The great thing about breakfast is that you don’t really need to do much to it to make it amazing. Breakfast is the best, and this meal is proof. But—real quick—before we get to that, can we just take a moment to acknowledge how sweet this horse is?!  I couldn’t get the other one to pose with …
