It was inevitable that pumpkin find its way into a quiche this winter.
And raclette cheese.
They were both leftovers, and I do love to use up the odd bits.
For those who don’t know raclette is both a cheese and a meal.
A raclette dinner normally consist of meats, usually charcuterie, of some sort, boiled potatoes, small pickles, pickled onions, and, of course, the raclette cheese.
Traditionally, the whole wheel of raclette would sit in front of an open fire and the melted cheese scooped off and eaten with the potatoes and pickles. Now one has a ‘raclette maker’ and sits around a table with friends. For us it’s an easy fireside dinner in winter.
I don’t usually have leftover raclette but I was planning ahead.

Sausage & Pumpkin Quiche
I used leftover cooked fresh pumpkin, but canned is even easier. As usual, this has a shredded potato crust.

My new computer is working. It’s taking longer than I had hoped but not longer than I planned for… yet.
The major things have all gone well but it’s the little things that are annoying.
I knew Win 10 would be in French – that’s easy, I just downloaded the English language pack.
I downloaded U.S. English, because that’s what I use. But my keyboard is British. All the letters work fine but the @ sign becomes “, and a few other irritating little changes. It didn’t take terribly long to sort it out, but I had to spend time doing it.
The one thing that I hadn’t expected and is driving my bonkers is One Drive. It was automatically installed and took over everything without my knowledge. It wasn’t on my old computer, also Win 10, so I didn’t know enough to look out for it.
I have since stopped it, and deleted it, but now all my files have onedrive in the path name…. for all of you nerds: instead of c\user\file it’s c\user\onedrive\file. It’s not important, but I want it gone. I can’t figure out how to get rid of it easily. My only choice appears to be moving all of my files which would be incredibly time-consuming and pointless.
I am exercising every bit of my self-control to Just. Let. It. Go.
The other thing is that the downloads take forever with my slow connection. Photoshop has been vacillating between 4 hours and 3 days to complete.
On the other hand it was sunny and 65F (18C) here today….
Happy Palindrome Day (02/02/2020)!
