Deep Dish Quiche

This quiche is a variation on Cook’s Illustrated Cookbooks Deep Dish Quiche Lorraine. Sorry, in a rush no time to post recipe.

 I filled mine with mushrooms, onions, peppers and kale and substituted the milk and cream with goats milk. Delicious and the majority of the ingredients were all from my CSA.

Green Goddess Dressing
I keep a recipe for Green Goddess Dressing from a 2009 Bon Appetit in my salad file and make it every year when herbs are in full bloom. I of course do make a few adjustments every time and it is always delicious.
In a food processor place 1/2 a chopped ripe avocado, 3 tbs Champagne vinegar, 1 chopped clove garlic, 1 tsp anchovy paste, juice of 1/2 a lemon, 1 tsp lime juice, 1/4 cup plain 0% Greek yogurt, 3 tbs chopped parsley, 2 tbs chopped tarragon, 2 tbs chopped cilantro, 2 tbs chopped basil, 1 small chopped shallot, bend until just combined. With the machine running gradually add oil through the feed tube until completely combined. Salt and pepper to taste. 
This is very thick and I use it as a dip for veg, to use as a salad dressing I whisk in water 1 tbs at a time until I reach the desired consistency.

Hello Sunday, lets review.

This week I made Creamed Corn with Bacon, oh so good, Dinner for one, farm fresh egg on toast topped w sautéed onions, peppers, mushrooms & sliced tomatoes, love breakfast for dinner, a Hummingbird Cocktail, little on the sweet side but very refreshing, a small batch of Chocolate Covered Cherries, forgot how good these are, a Steak Fajita Pizza, really good and finished the week with an Omelet stuffed with sautéed onions, peppers, mushrooms, arugula, fresh goat cheese and topped with a few dashes of Tabasco.

A decent week of making if I do say so myself. Now I need to go weed the garden and wait for my undependable sister to deliver my CSA haul she picked up 4 days ago.

What are you making this week?
