top ten pictures from the week ~7.12.10 (and a super easy finger food recipe)

And Monday nights are supposed to be quiet! A very quick post as I get ready to host book club here tonight...I mean last night...
A quick whip around is in order...so no words, just pictures :)
until you get to the recipe of course, then there are words as well as pictures...
well, one picture...

but I digress...
...as usual! You can see I still have my white painted wall thing going on can't you...painters are here next week, yippee! But I like to throw you off every now and again!

Now for the quickest, easiest, tastiest finger food recipe...mini quiche ...you need the following (I cheat and use ready made):

  • 2 sheets of shortcrust pastry
  • about 1/4 of a jar of caramelised onion or whatever looks equivalent to one onion (or make your own if you're a smarty pants)
  • 3 teaspoons grainy mustard
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup of milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 125g bacon
Cook the bacon in a little bit of oil until it's crispy, fling in the caramelised onion and mustard and a bit of pepper, and take off the heat.
Cut circles of pastry to fit your tin and put a small amount of the bacon mixture in each case. Pour over the milk and egg mixture, pop in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 200 degrees C, and voila!

And I have to apologise for not doing much commenting lately. My internet connection is playing silly buggers and taking an age to do anything...it's driving me batty!
p.s. the bookmarks were a big hit!
...and there may have been a drink or two in memory of Rose as well...'twas only fitting :)


  1. That second photo? I MUST LIVE THERE!!! Holy smokes I adore it :)

  2. Those little pastry thingies look great. I'd have to omit the bacon, but maybe throw in a few sundried tomatoes? Mmmm :)

  3. Yummy! I feel that deck would enhance my live immeasurably.

  4. Lovely selection of images. I always enjoy seeing what you have found in pictures. I am having a give away if you want to pop over. Have a great week.

  5. I love the photo of the tulip bulbs. Very creative.

    I am definitely going to try your recipe. I have these little tart molds I have been dying to try!


  6. Lovely pics as always my friend, but my favourite has to be those quiches. I'll definitely be adding this recipe to my xmas repertoire this year - thanks for sharing, they look lick-ya-lips delish! K xx

  7. The drawer unit in the first picture is stunning. Lovely collection of photos!

  8. I keep saying white and then I see the pic from the lampshade fits and I just swoon!
    Might have to try the quiche recipe next weekend, it sounds lovely and easy and looks rather mouth watering! xx

  9. LOVE the first image and your quiches look delicious. Hope you had fun hosting bookclub xx

  10. Love the look of the mini quiches! The other photos are nice too, but unreal if you see what I mean. The quiches, on the other hand are definitely real and yummy-looking.

    I'm glad the bookmarks were a hit, they looked lovely!

  11. Gorgeous images as always!! Thanks for the recipe, these will go on my Xmas snack list :D Hope your internet connection starts to play nicely. Huge hugs for a fabulous Wednesday ~ Tina xx

  12. Love the color of the wall in the picture with that grey kitty :-)

I love it when you comment...I feel excited, chuffed and tranquil all at the same time! Thank you.
