Pottery and Quiche

Pottery class yesterday, these little expresso cups need a little extra sanding, a firing in the kiln and then a glaze with maybe duck egg blue on the outside, white on the inside, will post pictures when finished.
Love Pottery class but will I ever be this good! beautiful ceramics from Pieter Stockmans studio in Belgium.

After class Into Manchester for a quick lunch with daughter, where we watched Leap Year, lovely romantic comedy with beautiful shots of the Irish countryside.

Tonight's dinner is tofu and broccoli quiche, new potatoes and carrots, this is basic recipe, which I tried out for the first time.
ready made short crust pastry
1 onion (I normally mix 1/2 & half with finely chopped celery )
2 cloves of garlic (again I add about 4 but it is personal preference)
approx. 1lb of cooked broccoli (or veg of your choice)
1lb of tofu
3/4 cup of soya milk
40z grated soya cheese
salt & pepper with a dash of english mustard and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

Bake pastry blind approx. 15 mins and let cool
Sweat off diced onion & garlic in a little vegetable oil until just going soft
Mix all other ingredients in a blender till smooth
Pour into cooled pastry caseand bake on a baking tray in the middle of the oven for 40 mins on 180c.

Seemed to work out well and was a big hit with the family.

So just a quick update of the goings-on here at the Window Shopping home.
