Summer Menu

Ham Quiche
Steamed Broccoli
Sliced Cantaloupe

Pinot Grigio

Chocolate Muffins

Quiche recipe adapted from the Moosewood Cookbook:

One 9" deep dish pie shell (unbaked)

Cover the bottom of the shell with 1 1/2 cups of grated swiss cheese. Add any type of meat or vegetable filling on top of the grated cheese - from 1/2 - 1 cup. If using veggies, it's better if they're already cooked. In the blender, combine the wet ingredients: 4 eggs, 1 1/2 cups half 'n half, 2 Tbs flour, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp dry mustard. Pour into crust. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake at 375 for 40 -45 minutes. Allow pie to rest 30 minutes before serving.

Excellent made ahead.

Freezes well, too.


  1. sounds lovely. if only the weather in england was as delightful to match...

  2. Here in the sunny southern US, we still have much Summer left. September is a hot month. I have a friend in London who's been complaining about the UK's weather :/

  3. It sounds (and looks) quite wonderful. Quiche is a particular favorite of my husband and we eat it fairly often.

  4. Oops! That last post wasn't Lilly, it was her mother (oh, the hazards of sharing a computer!). I'm sorry about that.
