As sometimes happens, I was thinking about my pie of the day this morning and was thinking about a certain location. I had not yet begun to make the pie when my telephone rang. It was a friend and she asked if she could recommend someone for a pie… or perhaps a quiche. The person she wanted to recommend was someone I knew whose family has had some challenges lately.
Once I heard about the situation, I jumped at the chance to help. I asked what kind of quiche might me appreciated, and she told me that a Quiche Lorraine would be most welcome. And so, of course, that is what I made. I sauteed the onions, cooked the bacon, and grated the Jarlsberg cheese. When all of that was done, I rolled out the crust, placed the cheese, bacon, and onions inside and poured the custard over it all. Into the oven it went, and in about an hour, it was done.
Tonight, before I delivered the quiche, I thought about how I might feel in my friend’s situation, and so I put together a small salad, some homemade dressing, a tiny bit of cookie dough, the quiche, and a bottle of wine. I want this friend to feel totally supported and know that if help is needed, it will be there. Isn’t that what friends are for?
Friendship makes prosperity more shining and lessens adversity by dividing and sharing it. Cicero
