Asparagus Quiche and Asparagus Soup.
Quiche just screams Ladies Who Lunch.
I used America's Test Kitchen's recipe.
It's so creamy and easy.
You pre-bake the shell for about
5 minutes and then add the goodies,
I was using sauteed leeks, blanched asparagus
and swiss cheese.
The you top it all off with a mixture of
2 eggs, 2 eggs yolks,
3/4 cup heavy cream, 3/4 cup milk,
a little salt, white pepper and a hit of nutmeg.
I only used the tips of the asparagus and was
feeling wildly decadent about that but very
wasteful with the stems, so hey,
I used Giada's recipe with the herbed goat cheese.
I even happened to have some honey goat cheese
in the fridge. I think the honey was a pleasant addition.
It cracked me up that I could lay my hands on
the Christmas dishes so easily.
It even snowed!
