Eileeen was exhausted yesterday and retired very early. I listened to the radio (and later the computer) and cooked.
I made the two pie crust recipe for a pecan pie and a quiche.
The pie burned. Bah. I made the mistake of going by the time in the recipe. Usually, I am more cautious and check it about half way through. Mistake. Interestingly enough, it doesn’t taste so bad. I cut myself a piece out of sheer masochism and was surprised that it looked a lot worse than it tasted.
The quiche was from a Jane Brody cookbook and amazingly only used two eggs.
It was quite successful despite my inevitable variations on the recipe (I added blue cheese which it didn’t seem to need, substituted mozarella for the swiss cheese it called for and sprinkled fresh basil on the tomato slices on the top…. mmmmm!)
