It’s a dreary, downtown day…

The B-52’s made me title this post.

I’m actually making two different quiches today. One is of course, a quiche Lorraine. The other is smoked gouda, ham and yellow bell pepper. Because I can.  

Hail to the NOMs, baby.

It's gouda for you.
Has anyone seen, a dog dyed dark green?
Nothing smells like bacon but ... BACON!!!
The "chef" and the ingredients pose for posterity.

Yes. I am wearing a T-shirt with a pig and the legend “Wynterhaven: Underdark Tour 2009”   There’s a story. You’ll have to ask. 🙂


This is how I slap together food, ya’ll. The funny thing is that most of the time, it comes out delicious.

I just had a piece of the bell pepper/ham quiche. Tasty, tasty. I’m calling it Quiche La Bon (was her name).



1 deep dish 9″ pie crust, no longer frozen~

6 eggs
Ground white pepper
Cracked black pepper
Dried Marjoram
Sea Salt
Diced yellow bell pepper, enough to cover the bottom of the pie crust
Maple cured ham, diced
Smoked gouda, shredded


Um, on the spices. One of these days, I will learn to actually measure when I am cooking.

White pepper = shake-a, shake-a, shake-a *SNIFF* Hm. Shake-a.

Cracked black pepper = cricky-cricky-cricky-cricky

Marjoram = ~Fling!~  Crap. Oh, well. (probably about 3/4 tsp.)

Sea Salt, coarse ground. To taste. Mine is not very much, thanks.


Layer the non-spice ingredients (minus the eggs) into the pie crust and set aside. Whisk the eggs until almost frothy. Fold in the spices. Pour this over the other stuff in pie crust. Squoosh with a fork until everything is submerged. Bake for about 32-35 mins in a 375 oven. When a knife comes out clean, its done.

Wait fifteen minutes (at least) before cutting so it can set up.~~

Nom. I reccomend a crisp green salad with an oil and vinegar dressing on the side.

  1. Hee hee! Glad you like the shirt. 🙂 I miss that group. And War Dumpling. And Frieda. And the prince. And even Keira a little.

  2. I *love* that shirt. Reminds me of happy gamering. Gammerung? The twilight of gaming!

    Even for me that was a bad, bad pun.

    I should probably finish the War Dumpling/Wire Mommy story, someday. I keep meaning to – and then RL intervenes. BAH!

  3. Ah, the Underdark. Land of Mystery … of Enchantment … of Squamous Horrors That Man Was Not Meant to Know (our DM had a thing for Lovecraft and Warhammer minis … it got messy).
