Winter Break

Although I leave two cats and three wonderful roommates when I travel home for the holidays, I still have a lot to look forward to. Warmer temperatures, indoor heat, loving parents, and the time-frozen neighborhood of my childhood all welcome me back gladly, but there’s also another perk: a huge, clean kitchen. If you’ve seen any of the photo posts I’ve done in the past you’ll find that while the kitchen in our apartment does have a ton of useful stuff, four people cooking in it can make it pretty messy (especially when we’re all too busy to clean). So when I’m home, I take advantage of generous, hungry parents and treat us all to some good cooking.

On the menu last night was an asparagus, onion quiche. We also had a bunch of potatoes, so I got the cheese grater and sliced them super thin, layering them in the bottom. Then came a layer of brie to make it extra creamy. I tossed on a pinch of nutmeg. Sounds weird, I know, but it worked with the brie somehow. I poured in the mixture of veggies, eggs, cream and flour and placed some strips of gouda and a dash of parsley on top to make it pretty. Who would have thought I’d be the one making the house smell delicious at dinnertime.
