Food for Thought for Friday -- SOME YOU WIN

Throw the cat the canary and put another pea in the soup :) 
I WON -- The Spring Poetry Contest over at Postcard Poetry & Prose :) 
with an ekphrastic poem entitled 

so away over there and take a keek 
or you'll get no quiche.

Honourable mentions went to my good friends Maire Morrissey Cummins and James Graham

And while you're about it check out this week's Bewildering Stories Issue 522 where I also have a poem -- A Snake Awakes and have a good read while you're there 'cos it's a great issue!

Okay Quiche it is -- 1 quantity short crust pastry = 8oz flour/4 butter/salt/ water to mix / /rest it half an hour/ roll out and put in flan dish then blind bake and sprinkle some semolina or polents into the base to keep itfrom going soggy.

Filling: Cooked spinach in base / cooked broccoli, peppers, onions, mushrooms, or any left over cooked veg you wish -- arranged on top of the spinach (also cooked smoked bacon if you like). 

Pour over 2-3 eggs / a tub of creme fraiche or half pint cream / salt beaten together.
 Cut cheese -- in this case Blue Stilton -- into cubes and add as wished. Sprinkle with black pepper and grated nutmeg and cook at 180 for 35 - 40 mins

Serve with salad and French dressing.
