for some reason i've been craving quiche lately. i often wonder what causes these weird, out-of-the-blue longings. is it a metabolic imbalance in my body? could i be low on potassium or iron? is the cosmic void sending me a way-too-subtle message? anyway, i decided to whip up a batch of quiche on sunday and this recipe more than satisfied my craving.
i found a recipe online (somewhere?) and then added my spin to it. here goes:
brown 8 slices of bacon and crumble
toss 8 oz of shredded swiss cheese and the crumbled bacon together and put in the bottom of a large pie pan
mix together in a bowl:
2 T melted butter
1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c milk
salt & pepper
shredded fresh spinach
pour contents of bowl into the pie pan and cook for 35-45 minutes at 350
it smelled so good that i could barely wait for it to cool to cut into it. yummo! i ate two rather large pieces. then i went back to crocheting a wonderfully slouchy hobo bag in a tweedy brown. as the afternoon wore on (me in my pajamas with doggy zoe asleep on my feet, watching a marathon of friends reruns) i could hear whisperings coming from the kitchen. i snuck in there a couple of times to see what was going on but all was still and quiet. as my fevered fingers double crocheted and back-looped-only, the whispers became more urgent. it seemed to be calling 'julie, julie . . . you know you want me". finally i could wait no more; i answered the call of that quiche and popped it right back into the oven on warm. and yes, you guessed it. i ate two more substantially awesome pieces.
