FFWD Quiche Maraichere


Some weeks I feel like I have things all figured out.  I'm keeping up with work, spending as much time as I can with Charlotte, cooking good food, keeping up with exercising, emails, the blog, the rest of my life....Other weeks I feel like throwing my hands in the air, lying down on the floor, and sleeping for a week.  Last week was the latter type of week.  Take a busy week at work, add in teething and a cold/allergies for Charlotte and some car trouble just for fun, and it starts to feel impossible to keep up with anything.  So, more than a week after I made the quiche, I'm finally sitting down to post about it.


Every time I make quiche I wonder I don't make it more often.  It's delicious, relatively quick (well, there's a lot of time, but almost all of it is just hands-off waiting time), and a great vehicle for any leftovers that might be hanging out in the refrigerator.  This wasn't my favorite quiche--the custard is my favorite part, and this one had less custard in favor of more vegetables and some cheese on top--but we still enjoyed it.  I don't normally serve such small portions of quiche, but we wanted a light dinner after a late afternoon birthday party, so here's the quiche with lots of salad and asparagus.  The next day we had larger pieces for lunch.  I love how well quiche reheats!

  5. My girls are almost 20 & 18 and I still feel like I have weeks like that :-) (But far less often, though) Those baby days were definitely some of the craziest/ overwhelming days that I remember. I remember wishing there was some kind of service that could come in and take over a part of my life for a few days so I could catch up on the rest...

  9. Beautiful quiche and I love that you served it with even more vegetables - it's probably the "healthiest" quiche I've come across. I hope things have settled down for you.
