Coveting the Quiche

My friend, Arlinda Snelling, came for dinner this week. We had a pleasant visit over Joy of Cooking's Quiche Lorraine with bacon, mushrooms & asparagus. The crust recipe was from Vegetarian Pleasures. The Simple Salad was from Lemon Lovers. It was ok, but tasted better the next day: torn baby greens with a little fresh lemon juice, a little less balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and shredded parmesan cheese all tossed.

I've not done well with my two previous Buttermilk Texas Sheetcakes. This one is right on. The cinnamon is a nice surprise and the half teaspoon of cayenne adds zip and boosts the metabolism. It stays moist, but does not keep with friends popping in for a sample.

Arlinda took home lilacs and Quiche. Unbenownst to us, Kim circled the block to see if she had left so she could have Quiche and not have to wait until the next day.
