Shortcrust Pastry Base (blind baked)
1 Leek finely chopped
1 Onion finely chopped
Butter for frying
150g strong Cheddar cheese, grated.
2 eggs (From your bestest Chickie Friends)
Gently fry the onion and leek gently in butter, until they are soft but not coloured. Spread over the base of the quiche. Sprinkle with the grated cheese. Beat the eggs with the milk. Pour the eggs and milk over the quiche filling. Cook in a medium/hot oven for 20-30 minutes until it golden brown on top. Enjoy.
I feel I must take this opportunity to update you with my 'One Woman Mission' to Declutter the house. It certainly cures your insomnia! Not that I had insomnia, but I did have to have an early night, which has meant this morning I was awake before the Sun had put his hat on and before the birds! Yesterday I achieved what I set out to do, declutter my room and make trips to the tip and the Charity Shop.
I made a list using a tally chart of what I manged to declutter. There were 71 items for the chartity shop.
5 T shirts
3 pairs of children's trousers
1 Toiletry set
3 bottles of Body Lotion
2 preschool games
1 blank audio cassette
71 items to the Charity Shop! I have a bit of a thing for round numbers...so today I may look for another 29 things, then that will make a nice round 100. Which sounds fantastic. I must have got rid of over 100 items but some of it went to the 'Tip' so sadly destined for landfill. This included:
Very old clothes
2 Dead Vacuums (It is a long story!)
Old work files
A black sack of general junk
I also recycled a big box of paper. I rediscovered parts of my bedroom carpet! I have also found some lost treasures, including a favourite crochet hook and bookmark. I actually found cash! I also found coupons £15 and saving stamps £30 (of course you have to be disorganised enough in the first place to lose them)! It was good to be reunited! It was like finding a fiver in your old coat pocket! All was going well and I was feeling rather smug. Euan has been very complementary about my efforts and has been and had another look today and consolidated his praise! Yes that's right all was going well.... I had three loads of washing to do last night. I put the first load in my trusty old tumble dryer...it is older than my oldest son so that makes it about 17 years old...well its given up the ghost! Hasta la vista Baby! It will be destined for landfill ASAP! I did not wish to declutter large electrical appliances! Today I will have to go and find a new one. It puts the stoppers on my 'One Woman Mission' to Declutter, it interferes with 'Pie Making' and it makes a mockery of delusions of imminent 'Tah Dah!' crochet moments.
