I'm going to a women's group tomorrow afternoon and the hostess, my friend, remembered a savory quichelike tart I made years back and when I offered to bring something, she asked gently about that. Tonight I'm going to make the dough, and I got enough ingredients to make two Tomato & Goat Cheese Quiches with fresh basil from The Joy of Cooking, so I can leave one for my family.
I also made Yolos [#youonlyliveonce, or Rolos knock-offs] from the The Oh She Glows Cookbook.
link to the recipe, but I didn't put chia seeds on top. These treats are excellent. My food processor broke, so I used the blender to puree the sticky dates and added a little pure maple syrup so the blades could do their job.

But having to walk to the closest store means I go to Kings. I gain the exercise and lose on some prices but I think it balances out.
Good night to you.
