Asparagus and Chevre Quiche; Tiptoeing thru the Tulips — 18 Comments

  1. I too always have a stash of Band-Aids in my bag! Much more practical than mascara, don’t you think?
    This is a lovely recipe, Katie. Prosciutto and asparagus are a knock-out combination!

  2. What could be better than this asparagus and prosciutto quiche? Looks so very good and I really love a rice crust.
    Maybe better would be feet comfortable in comfortable shoes!

  3. I like the idea of the brown rice crust. I was on someones site the other day and they were lamenting about the crust on a quiche being full of fat. I suggested potatoes, but rice is even better:D

  4. Oh, heaven, those _flowers_! No wonder you want to go back! And I’ll be trying the quiche this week for sure! Love the crust idea!

  5. Every year when I have to go back to school after the summer, my feet stage a rebellion! (And I’m wearing sandals at the beginning of school, but the feet still complain.) Sorry to hear about the blisters, but it sounds like you managed to make the most of it in spite of the sore feet.
    The quiche looks wonderful. What a great combination of flavors.

  6. I love quiche. It’s somehow out of food fashion but I care not!

  7. Katie, Thanks for stopping by my blog. It’s so nice to be thought of, especially where daylilies are concerned.
    Your recipes look delicious. I’m going to save them for when we get to asparagus time here.

  8. Susan, I can’t think of a single emergency use for mascara…
    Tanna, I tried with the shoes…really…
    Val, I started using rice because I don’t do pastry… the health benefits are a side
    Zoomie, the flowers were marvelous!
    Kalyn, I know this – thus the spare Band-Aids!
    Sandi, toes are back in rubber Wellies… Quiche is long gone!
    Scott, I’ve never been a slave to fashion ;-))
    Jane Marie, no asparagus yet???? You poor thing!!!
    Laurie, some things are just worth it!
    Peter, it was so easy…. I had to take lots of photos just to waste some time… (Maintain the cook’s mystique and all)
    Lydia, it must be nice to leave near there – the gardens are free so one could go often.
    Gattina, there much better, now… I’m ready to go back!

  9. Oh dear – I feel your pain! I have a pair of hiking sandals that feel perfectly fabulous for the first 30 mins or so. After that, they remove a slice of skin from the base of the bony bulge of your outer ankle and then rub up against the raw flesh for the rest f the day. Joy. So my camera bag is always filled with bandaids.
    I am fascinated by the brown rice crust. Made a similar tart on puff pastry yesterday with broccoli instead of asparagus and it was heavenly!

  10. Is that song of Chris Rea: Giberny talking about these gardens? I don’t know but the word sounds so nicely… Giberny! What a lovely wandering you had there and you don’t mention the smells…. that must have been heaven 😀
    I’m so sorry for your blisters 🙁 Poor thing!
    The Quiche is out of this world and so down to earth at the same time…. delicious 😀
