Friday Breakfast Part II  

Friday, June 12, 2009

For the second part of breakfast I made two of PW's quiches, although these are normal depth, so they're one batch of her recipe. I added a couple of extra eggs and some extra cream though because they didn't seem full enough.

What's better than a pound of bacon? A pound of barbeque bacon? Yep, I found some at the grocery store. For the meat-lovers quiche I added the bacon, a cup of cheddar cheese, a little cilantro, and some ancho pepper. I cooked it for half an hour last night before allowing it to cool and refrigerating it. It was still very jiggly when I took it out of the oven and I hope it cooks the rest of the way today without any problems.

For the veggie-lovers I added spinach, mushrooms, and chives to the base quiche and I forgot the mozzarella cheese until this morning, so it's going on top. Ooops. I do not like mushrooms, but these did look pretty in the quiche (or they did before adding the cheese).

The colors on the pictures were really difficult to get right. They're sort-of edited, but the florescent lights are difficult, especially with green.

I'll have to add the after pictures later because I'm running late and I have an 8:30 meeting.

Friday Breakfast  

Thursday, June 11, 2009

Friday Breakfasts have been resurrected at work and it's my turn tomorrow. So, I decided to make a couple of dishes from PW's site. And I have to say I'm impressed (as I always am) with her recipes.

The apple tart is simple and tasty. I cut my pastry dough into more pieces to make it easier for people to serve themselves.

Here they are before going into the oven. (Please ignore the ugly 70's-style oven. I don't want you to know my pain.)

And the apples in what looks to be a caramel sauce. Don't let it fool you though, it's brown sugar and lemon juice - definitely not something you want to slurp down.

And here's the first batch (minus a couple) ready to go.

Tomorrow I'll post more about the quiches and my variations on PW's recipe.

Thoughts of Closing  

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

I haven't posted in a while and I actually have given a lot of thought to closing the blog down. I still enjoy writing, but I haven't felt motivated to write here. But then I found out that my sister is reading the blog, and (OMG my sister is reading my blog!) I thought it'd be rather rude to shut down after she took the time to find me.

So, the blog will be up for a little while longer while I mull it over.

I'm still reading your blogs though and finding a lot of good content on the Internet even if I don't always comment.
