It's been a long time since I last baked a quiche. And since I bought some cheddar and mozzarella from the baking store a few days ago, I decided to bake a spinach quiche for a friend of mine . My dear friend Mathilda who is also Jo's godmom , loves anything with cheese and since Piggy gal is going to visit her the next day, I decided to make one for her to take along as hand gift. You know, I was actually very tired that night after rushing through my work project but becoz I promised my Jo I will bake one for her to take to Mathilda who is her godmom, I started to make the quiche only at 11.30pm and finished baking it at 2am...do you believe it , I couldn't get up the next morning and I had to apply for emergency leave. Gosh , there goes one day of my precious leave. But worth it coz , this quiche turned out delicious. I made two, one for Jo's godmom and one for ourselves :))I used the same Loraine Quiche pastry and changed the fillings to spinach instead of bacon bits and onions ;p . I love this crust..it was the nicest crust I ever had . :)) Do try this quiche crust and you will know what I mean ;p haha I was amazed how much energy I still have left after working through my work project to bake these quiches....err supermom or what , I have no choice for I had promised Jo that I will bake the quiche for her . She loves her godma very much...haha I will never be jealous of that coz her godma loves her very much so it is only natural that Jo loves her much too :)) Don't worry , my baby loves me very much too lol!
