I'm getting pretty good at making crust from scratch if I do say so myself.
Of course I don't make the one from shortening - I make the one with BUTTER!
It's nice and flakey, and buttery and oh so good!
Necessity is the mother of invention - I'd never even attempt to make crust from scratch if I lived in the US. I'd just pop by the Kroger and buy it.
I stuffed the Quiche with spinach, peas, and sausage (the pig sausage from the
Spinach Quiche has about 350 calories per slice and I figure since I added sausage it's most likely about 400 - 450 per slice. More on the 450 side because, well...Butter!
Anyway I was a cooking machine this weekend. I made the Quiche, Mexican surprise, and an egg and sausage dish. I've frozen it all and will have it as breakfast / dinner all week.
I have to say - cooking while having a vodka is quite fun!
In other news (don't I sound just like a newscaster?!)...
We're leaving in 2 weeks for AMERICA!
You can't see me, but I'm doing a little dance!
