Oh come on, don’t tell me that you haven’t fried yourself a nice piece of quiche for breakfast before. Or ever. Especially when your brilliant idea from the day before didn’t turn out as you’d planned. I wanted to use up the spinach that I’d left a few days in the refrigerator, and I had potatoes I hadn’t used, so I thought they would make a dandy hash brown crusted quiche. There may be a reason that the online recipes I saw called for frozen hash browns, perhaps they magically don’t turn brown the way potatoes usually do. I know that mine were turning brown faster than I could grate them. But I was committed (don’t say it) at that point so on I went, browning the hash brown crust first, and even though the bottom crust looked more soggy than crusty I went ahead and poured in the filling and baked it. Which didn’t improve the bottom crust any, but it was edible. Faced with trying to figure out what to do with it the next day I knew I had nothing to lose so I resorted to my little frying pan, and when I saw it was browning quickly I covered the pan, even though I imagined a volcano erupting in there, but surprisingly it was quite good.
I’ve been feeling rather scatter-brained lately Not able to sit down and make a plan for what I might want to do this summer, even if it’s just a fantasy. I opened the maps function of the computer and put in the farthest possible destination for myself, and now I stare at the map of the US with that blue line that would lead me there. And there are choices, not one blue line but two, and infinitely more really. Last year going to New England felt cozy, but looking at that map, that blue line, makes me feel like I’d be traveling naked. Exposed. So my mind boggles even as I try to use up the stuff in the refrigerator and tell myself to start making lists. Making plans, and frying my quiche…

I am reading this before breakfast, and that quiche looks very good to me! Enjoy the day!

Yes, it was surprisingly good. Two breakfasts so far, and the original dinner, and still there is more. But I have to eat tomorrow too…
