Lunch was pretty special prepared by blogless Marlies, who really knows how to entertain! We started with a beautiful salad. The dressing was an aromatic vingrette with hints of curry.
The main course was a very tasty Quiche! The recipe originally came from blogless Peggy's friend's mom (Jo) and prepared by Marlies was very tasty and beautiful as well! When I entered the house I could smell it baking and knew I was in for a treat.
Here is the recipe:
1 c. whole-wheat flour
2/3 c. grated sharp cheddar
¼ c. chopped almonds
½ t. salt
¼ t. paprika
6 T. oil
Combine and press into 9 inch pie plate or quiche pan, saving ½ c. to sprinkle on top.
Bake 400 deg. for 10 minutes.
1 (15 ½ oz.) red salmon. Drain and save juice
3 eggs, beaten
1 c. sour cream
¼ c. mayonnaise
¾ c. grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 T. grated onion
1/4 t. dried dill weed
3 drops Tabasco (or to taste)
Turn oven down to 325 deg.
Add enough water to salmon liquid to make ½ cup. Flake salmon, remove skin and bones. Set aside.
Blend eggs, sour cream, mayo, and salmon liquid. Stir in salmon, cheese, onion, dill and Tabasco
Spoon filling into crust. Sprinkle top with reserved crust mixture.
Bake 325 degree for 45 min. or until firm in center. Serves 6.
We finished the meal off with beautiful Chocolate and Coconut Lacy Cookies. There is no picture, because I ate them. The recipe is by Giada De Laurentiis, on the foodnetwork.com
