Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

J.  So V., what are your plans for Thursday.  I'm thinking

a picnic...

with perhaps a...

Quiche Lorraine
1 unbaked pie crust (your own recipe)
8 sl bacon
1 med onion, thinly sliced
4 eggs, beaten
1 c light cream
1 c milk
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
½ tsp salt
dash ground nutmeg
1-1/2 c swiss cheese, grated

Line pastry shell with foil fill with weights.  Bake in 450 oven for 5 minutes.
Remove weights and foil and bake further 5-7 minutes until pastry is almost done.
Remove from oven and reduce heat to 325.
In a skillet cook bacon until crisp, reserving 2 tbsp of dripping.
Crumble bacon finely and set aside.
Cook sliced onion in reserved drippings until tender, drain.
In bowl, thoroughly stir together eggs, cream, milk, flour, salt, and nutmeg.
Stir in bacon, onion and cheese, mix well.
Pour into warm pastry shell.  If necessary, cover edge of crust with foil to prevent
overbrowning.  Bake for 45-50 minutes until set in centre.  Let stand ten minutes.

I've found a pretty summer dress...

and a cardie in case the evening gets cool...


and a bag...

So I'm ready for the party, just one thing to add...

CANADA's going to be a blast!

  1. Love that Anthro outfit. It is a funny holiday this year. Most are taking Friday off so it is like tomorrow isn't a holiday. Have a great weekend.

  2. I know what you mean Chiana...but there WILL be fireworks!


Go on...make my day...
