have a lovely one!

I hope it’s a good weekend for you!

Today was the best teaching day I’ve had in a while, and I’m elated. Kids learned (which is, you know, the point). And they had fun. I couldn’t ask for more. We talked about outlines, drafts, the structure of a paragraph, and some bigger questions: how do people enact change? how were women treated throughout much of western history? how can we fight against the status quo if we disagree with it?

Any fun weekend plans for you? I’m making quiche with my man friend, watching Indiana Jones, going to a party tomorrow, and running. Maybe baking something and reading because that’s pretty standard for me on weekends.

And before I head off, here are a few a links for the weekend, a basic quiche recipe from Julia Child, and a good song that I heard on the radio on my drive home… lv, molly

Basic Quiche

Note: Add ~3 oz. cheese and/or 2 C vegetables to the following

A pastry shell
3 eggs
1 1/2 C whipping cream or half cream/ half milk
1 tsp salt
Pinch of pepper
Pinch of nutmeg
1 – 2 Tbl butter cut into pea sized dots (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs, cream, and seasonings. Add veg or cheese. If using a vegetable with a high water content (e.g. spinach), saute beforehand. Pour mixture into pastry shell, and distribute the butter pieces on top (this will create a nice brown top). Bake for 25-30 minutes or until quiche has puffed and browned.
