Yesterday morning Vince left to go work. Nothing unusual there, huh? 🙂 The unusual thing is that he wasn’t coming home for lunch yesterday so I had the entire day to sit and knit . . no lunch to fix . . lots of knitting time. Once he left, I was sitting and waiting for it to get a bit more daylight before I went to let the chickens out and I grabbed the new Grit magazine to read it and came across a recipe for Cheesy Corn Quiche. Oh, my . . it looked so delicious! I wanted to make it for dinner. It called for fresh cut corn. I had no corn on the cob. I had storebought frozen corn and home canned corn that I cut off the cob but I decided I really needed to go to the store. Besides, I needed to go to the bank, got to the ag store, go to the post office, go to the health food store, might as well grab myself some lunch from one of those places Vince doesn’t like and . . final stop would be Kroger.
Don’t panic when you see the number of eggs I used . . they’re little bantam eggs.
I could have been a whole lot neater with my crust but . . I was positioning it in a HOT pan and I had just cleaned the stove top and had the pot sitting on top of the grate and flour was going everywhere so I was a bit aggravated with myself.
I had chicken in the fridge and was going to make Sweet & Sour Chicken but Nicole and I decided that wouldn’t go so well with the quiche so Vince grilled the chicken, I heated up some already cooked pinto beans and made deviled eggs. Obviously, I’m not a big fan of deviled eggs .. hence, just half of one egg on my plate.
The quiche was delicious and would make a great dish to serve when entertaining. There’s nothing weird in it but yet it’s a bit unusual . . enough that folks will think you’re an excellent cook! 🙂
