Netball Gala Day to raise money for Cancer Research
Helping out at school
At work there’s more tears, lots of them, but at least there the tears are from clients trying to cope with their own lives.
In all the madness I tried to foster a sense of control so I went on a cleaning and purging binge!
I cleaned everything! Including my iphone… and all the photos… including the one’s of this week’s recipe.
Probably how I looked when I realised I wiped the photos!
(Don’t you love the pics the kids think are hilarious to take!)
I can tell you Dorie’s Spinach and Bacon Quiche was amazing.
Everyone loved it, from the 3 year old to my 70 year old dad.

I made this quiche on the weekend, so I was going to be really good (after missing last week’s recipe) and get my post ready nice and early.
When I discovered I’d wiped my photos I was bummed but ready to make another quiche.
Everyone loved it after all…
But then, as I was flicking through my copy of Around My French Table, I noticed the recipe for Gerard’s Mustard Tart.
I joined after the group made this and I happen to love mustard so I thought I’d make this instead.
Dorie uses the same tart dough recipe for both recipes and I had my trusty sidekick helping…
The dough is so easy to make…
The filling for both quiches was even easier to prepare…
As I said I love mustard.
I also love leeks and pasty.
The taste was unusual and unfamiliar, but in a good way.
It left us with a quizzical but appreciative look on our faces.
I definitely recommend stepping out of the familiar and giving this tart a go.
And the spinach and bacon quiche will definitely be made again and again!
