Red, white, blue and food
Thought I'd post this pic of a broccoli quiche (thanks to Vegan Noodle for the link) which I made over the 4th of July weekend, before the 4th of July (2008) disappears into history. It was a hit - my youngest son who is probably our family's most discerning food critic - said he liked it better than Quiche Lorraine. The crust is store-bought (vegan whole-wheat from Whole Foods). I was a little heavy-handed with the turmeric, hence the yellow tint . Personally I liked the texture and the fact that it used up a huge big chunk of tofu which might otherwise have remained in the fridge until July 4, 2009.
I am a veteran runner who started running as a lark in high school and have never stopped. I have run 15 marathons, the last one of which was the 2009 Boston Marathon. My other interests include the movies, cooking, travel (the business that I'm in), opera and birding, although I do not have as much time for it as I used to.
