Sunday, March 29th - Go Fish! and Quiche

Breakfast was cereal.

Lunch was Go Fish!....mmmmm The little fish shack on the Granville Pier run by the owner of the hugely successful Tapas Bar Bin941. We had out of town guests so we took them. J and his little boy D. They had a Qualicum Bay scallop sandwhich with fries and clam chowder. Fantastic. I and D shared 2 piece Salmon and 1 piece Halibut battered in their famous Beer batter and fried. Served with Fries and red cabbage slaw and tartar. Line up with significant and it was chilly, though sunny, but there was still a line!

Dinner was creative. I got some deep dish pie shells and we had some extra eggs and veg from J`s sailing trip. That`s why he`s staying over. Pretty random stuff, 1 dozen eggs and frozen green beans which we decided couldn`t be refrozen. So we made a quiche.

Green Bean Quiche

1.5 - 2 c frozen green beans chopped
1 c grated cheddar and mozzarella
6 eggs
2 T flour
1 c milk or cream
1t herbe de provence
1t fresh sage

Blind bake the crust for ten minutes.. poke with fork.

Whisk the eggs, milk and flour. Add the cheese. Spread the beans on the already blind baked crust. Pour over the eggs and top with sliced tomato. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes a little longer if jiggly. Since this was a deep dish, we left it in for 10 more minutes.

On the side, I made a small green salad from a mixed baby greens mix with simple dressing.

Simple Lemon Balsamic Dressing

1T grain mustard or dijon
1-1.5 T balasamic
keep whisking as you drizzle in 2-3T of lemon olive oil.

Add to greens, just enough of the dressing to toss with tongs until barely coated.
