We are not vegetarians. We eat meat and we eat a lot of fish and seafood. But because we like it, and because we focus on climate changes and want to take care of our Mother Earth, we try to eat as little meat as possible, as much vegetables as possible. At least (!) (though often a lot more) we have a vegetarian dinner once a week. And as I love cooking (when I have time for it), I also love to put time and love in as main ingredients in our meals.
Yesterday was a green dinner day, quiche lorraine, but with no ham, no bacon.
Starting with flour, butter and water, mixing it together with my fingers. I love to use my fingers when I cook. I love to smell and to taste. I love to look at the colours. Food for all senses.
The pie dough wrapped in plastic, and into the fridge it went. While I sat down with my book, waiting to hear from my husband when his plane landed. He had spent the day in Oslo.
Woops, I almost forgot. Before I could sit down I had to prepare the filling.
Broccoli, chive, garlic and squash. Olive oil in the pan. Fry for a few minutes. Eggs and cream mixed together. Salt. Pepper. Coriander. The pie dough in a pan. Bake for 10 minutes, then wait before I add the filling......oh my, writing recipes in English is not my cup of tea..........
......well, cup of tea, glass of water or whatever.
Just as the airport taxi stopped outside The House in the Woods, I took the quiche out of the oven, and when Terje came in I smiled at him, gave him a kiss and said: dinner is ready!
