Black and White Prints and a Cheesy Quiche

La mode: Ew, Monday stinks. I’ve been dreading this one especially, since it means my mom goes home and my five day weekend is over. But I suppose all good things must come to an end, and besides, I’d better go back to work if I want to make any money this summer. This long weekend has been a wonderful time though—I don’t remember the last time I’ve had so much fun talking, eating and shopping.

I’m behind on my outfit posting; I actually wore this last Thursday. I was featured that day on Kimberly of Fab Finds Under $50’s June Outfit Inspiration Calendar, so I wanted to mix black and white prints, as the calendar said. Although it’s a departure from my usual tendency to wear color, I like how dramatic wearing all black (and denim) can be.

La nourriture: I spent almost no time cooking while my mom was here—there were too many restaurants we needed to visit. However, I did make cheese quiche, a recipe that came from my grandma (my mom’s mom). My mom would make it for breakfast every Christmas morning, and I looked forward to it every year. I thought it would be a nice thing to have while she was here.

The original recipe includes ham, but I’m not a big ham fan (although bacon is a whole other story!). It’s definitely an Americanized version of quiche; this version is much more cheesy and less custardy than its French counterpart. But it is delicious, I’ll tell you that for sure.
