A Quiche Only a Mother Could Love

Maybe the cat has fallen into the stew, or the lettuce has frozen, or the cake has collapsed. Eh bien, tant pis. Usually one's cooking is better than one thinks it is. And if the food is truly vile, then the cook must simply grit her teeth and bear it with a smile, and learn from her mistakes.
Julia Child, American French chef (1912-2004), in My Life in France

Mom loves mushrooms so I planned to use a new recipe to make her an extraordinary deep dish mushroom quiche for Mother's Day lunch. Oh, it was extraordinary alright! Its tasty egg custard leaked all over the baking sheet. I count my blessings that it wasn't all over the floor of the oven! Mom, being the great mom she is, was supportive as always and complimented my efforts as "delicious". Thanks Mom! Once my wounded pride has healed, I will try this recipe again and when I get it right we'll celebrate. In the meantime:

Happy Mother's Day!
