Dinner was interesting tonight. I was making this new quiche where you line a crispy, cheese and bacon crust at the bottom of a pie pan, then pour the quiche over the top.
(Since this was a recipe I completely doctored, therefore making it my own… and since this was the first try for the family, I had a regular dinner of spaghetti, too. I try-out new combinations of food a lot and yeah, sometimes my ideas don’t work. Sometimes. )
So, the hubby was supposed to bring home the missing milk and I had everything all chopped and laid out and he forgot. (Very unusual, that. In his defense, the constant robberies at the business have him distracted.) So, I substituted uh, extra egg, water and butter. Since the thing was full of broccoli and onion, I thought it might be okay. I mean bacon and cheese is always good, right?
It was okay. Just okay. It’ll freaking rock with the right ingredients. But the cheese and bacon make an excellent chewy crust on the bottom… or in my case top. It’s supposed to get more crispy, but I was using this awesome, awesome pan.
My Aunt Sharon–who comments and recently wrote for the SFAP occasionally sells this flexible cookware and I simply can’t gush enough. (Nothing ever sticks and you never use oil or spray or anything. Everything cooks just right. The clean up is so fast and easy–they should be illegal. No icky overspray then rust on the muffin pans… <g> I’m serious, go to her blog and ask her about it if you like to cook.) Anyway, this is the pan I used and it always makes the prettiest cakes. They look like sunflowers.
So…I had the most gorgeous yellow, cheesy, browned-in-the-perfect-spots sunflower quiche ever.
Next time, it’ll even taste gorgeous. 😉
I made a pound cake in this pan and took it to the recap in August at OKRWA and the writers will tell you–it’s pretty.
So, anyway, we’re eating together for a change and we’re also watching Myth Busters. That show rocks. Would it not be the best job to have? My husband and son love it and since my son is learning, we even order the repeats on On Demand.
But, tonight, even the teenager is with us. She has her own interesting way of communication. You say something she doesn’t like and she says, “Sad face.” Or “Mad face.” Sometimes, instead of laughing, she’ll say, “Amused face.”
Yeah, so tonight, she looks over at one of the guys on the show, squeals then says, “Oh, he’s like… soooo cool! He’s like… bald.. with this…like… really,really, poofy mustache and he’s all… like artsy with his little hat and that really, really poofy mustache.”
She’s like… so cute. <g>
