I suddenly felt like roast vegie quiche the other day after seeing a frozen one at the supermarket, and decided to do some roasting. There’s a bit of faffing about with quiche, making the pastry, cooking vegies, etc but it’s worth it as long as you use a big enough tin. I can’t say this enough, as someone who far more than I want to admit, has ended up with way more egg filling than would fit in the tin.
Anyway, naturally I used one of those little enamel hipster pie tins which was way too small, so use a fairly deep pie or quiche tin and you should be right.
As expected, the combination of sweet roast pumpkin and savoury feta cheese was delicious! Adding some rosemary, toasted walnuts, onion & garlic made this a great lunch and we had heaps for the next couple of days. I’m seriously starting to add walnuts to everything, it’s becoming ridiculous so feel free to leave them out however I do like the texture and flavour of them in the creamy quiche filling.
The quiche paired really well with a crunchy salad full of baby kale and cherry toms.
Have a lovely long weekend all.
These are so easy to whip up. I love how the chocolate chunks were all melty warm from the oven.
I used a friand tin to make them a bit fancier but a normal muffin tin will do.
Because I like cups of tea.
So I whipped up an autumn inspired luscious squidgy pudding full of caramel, apples, cream and brioche. So good with thick cream!
Well I don’t know about anyone else but I went through so many tissues for the last ep! Am a very sad panda now.
And here’s to Betty Draper. I know some people disliked her but she had so much depth and despite (or maybe because of) her many faults, I loved her, plus she was fabulous. For so many reasons, Betty reminded me of my own mum who was born probably 15 years after Betty; being a product of her time and with the expectations and limitations of that time, she lived the only way she knew and was often misunderstood.
I’ll really miss this brilliant show which has been a part of my life for 9 years (!).

Some interesting buildings nearby. Have an awesome weekend all.
Nut butter is fascinating to make – it starts off sort of crumbly then becomes this lovely butter if you process it for long enough. Although, I have this paranoia about having the food processor on for too long and it’ll blow up or something .. can this happen?! If you have a high powered food processor, blending it for 15 minutes or so will give it an even creamier texture (I don’t have one of those so mine’s a bit more rustic).
Anyway, I made this last week to have with buttered sour dough toast for breakfast and it was lovely with a not-too-sweet chocolate flavour.
