Do you guys remember that episode of sex and the city when the girls talk about their secret single behaviour (better known as SSB). These are behaviours or habits (sometimes embarrassing) that you only do when alone. For Carrie it was stacking saltines (known as premium crackers in Australia) and putting grape jelly on them and for Charlotte it was studying her pores for 10 minutes a night.
So I’ve worked out over the years that people sit in one of two buckets. They either love leftovers or they’re just not that into it. Unless I’ve cooked a dish that I absolutely love or something that actually gets better with time, I sit in the latter bucket.
When it’s cold and dreary outside there are some dishes that make you feel like you’re sitting by a crackling fire enveloped in a big soft blanket or if you’re lucky to have one, a doona/duvet/comforter suit. Say wha? People, someone has taken the snuggie to the next level and invented the doona suit. Probably the most unsexy outfit I have ever seen in my life but who cares when you can walk around feeling like you’re still in the comfort and warmth of your bed!
Hands up for those of you on a low-carb diet? I know there’s a stack of you out there; Atkins, Dukan, anyone? Well…strictly speaking this recipe is not diet food and probably wouldn’t be given the tick of approval by Dr Dukan but maybe Mr Atkins would be ok with a few of these baby quiches. It does include cream but when everything else at a party is carb-laden (which obviously makes for killer drinking food) it’s nice to have something that isn’t wrapped in some form of pastry.
So if I was organised, I would have posted this recipe for St Patrick’s Day (because it’s green people, yes, just pointing out the obvious – just in case), but I wasn’t, so here it is today. Come to think of it, on the other hand you could actually say that I am super organised and getting you prepared for next year’s St Patrick’s Day. Up to you which way you want to look at it…glass half empty or glass half full…your choice.
