I am here really. I haven't been near the computer in a few days and Grandma is keeping me so busy that by the end of the day I'm too exhausted to experiment with new recipes or blog about them. Sorry!
But, I have been cooking. I have even tried a few newies with varying degrees of success.

An Apple Tarte Tartin that tasted great but needs a little fine-tuning with regards to measurements and/or cooking time. I will be trying it again very soon.

A Honey Oat Slice that I won't be making again. It was fairly bland and rock hard by day 2.

An Impossible Quiche that was light, tasty and, as the name suggests, absolutely impossible to stuff up. I can see this one becoming a regular 'easy meal' at our table.

Hubby and I went on a 'date' last night. We thought we'd take advantage of having some babysitters here and headed off to the outdoor movies at the town theatre. There is an enormous screen with a grassy amphitheatre and we took a picnic dinner with lots of yummy nibbles (Maggie Beer's spiced pear paste is divinely delicious!) and a bottle of wine. We saw Pirates of the Caribbean 3 (yes, I know it has been out everywhere else forever but we live in the remote desert-lands of Red Dirt!) and had a great time. We are aiming for a lunch-date late next week and are trying to work out if we can fit in a dinner somewhere too.

Impossible Quiche
from Australian Table, July 2007

4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups low-fat milk
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1 cup grated low-fat tasty cheese
100g lean ham, diced
3 green onion (shallots), finely chopped (didn't have any so I used spring onions)
1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Lightly grease a 24cm ovenproof pie dish.
2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and pour into prepared dish. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden and set. Serve with salad. (As you can see we also did potato wedges.)
