Quiche Lorraine (with Bronx Cocktail)

I made this recipe by myself while Gary was out of town working; therefore the recipe is exactly as is on the website where I found it. Behold: Quiche Lorraine.

Also, the cocktail was exactly as I found it online, because I really know nothing about these things, but I knew I had orange juice and gin and this is what I found that you can make. Turns out the Bronx cocktail is pretty dang tasty.

Tasting Notes:

Lisa: Well, Gary was out of town for work, and so I decided I would do a pairing all by myself.  When I was a kid, my mom always made breakfast for dinner when my dad was gone on business trips, so I guess this was a little nostalgic  Anyways, the quiche was tasty, loaded with mushrooms, veggies and cheese.  It went very nicely with the orange juice based cocktail (I mean OJ is breakfast right); and I had some strawberries with it because it was the first week I found California strawberries in the store on sale this year, and they are basically my favorite food ever.  I shared the rest of the quiche when Gary came home.  I did not share the strawberries 🙂
