Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Wednesday's 3 Julias

Today the Wednesday Knit Trio met for a "Julie & Julia" inspired luncheon.
A picture perfect table...
A delicious menu with a Crustless Maryland Crab Quiche (recipe at the end of the blog), a Spring Salad mix with a Raspberry Vinaigrette, a dish of berries, blueberry muffins with a choice of Lemon Curd, Boysenberry Preserves, or "BUTTER!!" (if you've seen the movie Julie & Julia, you'll know you can't have too much butter) (if you haven't seen the movie, you should... it's great!).

You cannot imagine my surprise when SuKnitWitty showed up in hat, pearls, and apron!! And she had a hat, pearls, and apron for each of us. What fun to dress up and be Julia for the afternoon.

The cook...although I don't look Julia-ish...
I love the hat!! But I should've changed shoes, lol.

And the recipe:

1 cup shredded Swiss cheese, divided
1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 Tablespoon BUTTER
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
3/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
3/4 cup (6 oz) crabmeat

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Prepare pie plate:
Lightly spray 9" pie plate with Pam. Sprinkle 1/2 cup Swiss cheese on bottom of pie plate.

In a skillet, saute red pepper and onions in butter until tender.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, and Old Bay seasoning. Stir in the red pepper and onions, the crab, and remaining Swiss cheese (I didn't measure, I just added a handful... oh, so un-Julia-like of me)

Pour into pie plate and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting.

my horoscope for today, "You'll probably feel like having a little fun and enjoying yourself before the day is through." So true for today!!

Our horoscope was right-on! And so were YOU with the best 'Q'uiche I ever ate! Now about the shoes...comfort first...Julia would approve. Ear comfort? My earlobes are still numb.
