An Old Friend

I’ve had quite a lot bouncing around my mind lately, and now I’ve found myself at the end of another day, and still a laundry list of things to do a mile long.

Tonight I hosted our neighbors for dinner and made my “Old Reliable,” Quiche, served with a simple baby arugula salad dressed with parmesan cheese, olive oil and a splash of lemon juice.  After being away, I find it very comforting to come home and fall back into routine.  It’s sort of like an old friend (until you get a pile of work a mile high and wonder what the point of taking a vacation is …. but that’s a story for another day!).

I chose to make my quiche, because since I’ve started experimenting in the kitchen, I’ve been doing new things (who’d’ve thunk it, right?) and it’s always nice to come back to an old favorite, and know that no matter how time crunched you are, or overwhelmed with things that need to get done … or blah blah whatever … this dish is a certified crowd pleaser, and you could make it in your sleep.  That’s how I feel about my quiche, and I have to say, it’s rarely (dare I say never?) let me down.

As I sit here full to the brim with the goodness of quiche, arugula salad and good, old-fashioned milk (sidenote: I drink a lot of it), I am overwhelmed with a feeling of contentedness.  Maybe not everything in life is going exactly as I’d hoped  … maybe I don’t have a dog (yet?!? oh please God, I’m being so very good!) … but in the whole scheme of things, life is good.

And here’s what I’m telling you (my few readers) ~ make the Quiche.  Because it’s really good. And once you’ve made it, you’ll be hooked, too.

And with that, I have to say ….

The man is now home, and my eyes are practically begging to be done staring at a computer for the day … so I bid you all adieu.
