Lots of work to be done at the kitchen table.
Lots of work. 75 exams to grade. 15 short essay questions each.
After the finishing the first page of each exam in the first section, I decided to take a break and make a quiche.
First, to make the crust.
Whole wheat pastry flour, a stick of butter, a pinch of salt. Very basic.
You must weight it down with dried beans so it doesn’t bubble during pre-baking.
While the crust baked, I sautéed some leftover red chard for the filling.
Meanwhile, Kyle played with Speckle the Cat.
I think Speckle was too smart for that ping-pong ball, though.
Once pre-baked, the crust was filled with chard, roasted potatoes/ garlic/ sweet onion/ rosemary, and egg custard.
Work dwindled while the quiche baked.
… Perhaps “dwindled” is too strong a word…
The final product spurred us to [take another break to] go outside.
Living with Kyle is a lot like living with my brother… always “amusing.”
A short hike in the nearby woods…
… And back home to finish work!
