All was going to plan until I smelt the smell of burning butter... I didn't have a tart pan so I used my spring form pan. But, I didn't wrap the bottom with foil or put it on a baking sheet... don't know why it didn't dawn on me that all those lovely chunks of butter I could see in my dough were going to melt and seep through to the bottom of my oven, thank you nose!
Got the tart all assembled and into the oven, thought things were going good now. Relaxing with my wonderful glass of CA Chardonnay (sorry folks, but French wine is just not the same and I miss my Napa wines) reading through the recipe... ARGGG, I forgot to put the egg & cream mixture on top! Are you kidding me??? I wish I could say I'd drank 1/2 the bottle of wine, but at this point I hadn't made it through my first glass. The tart had only been in the oven for 3 minutes (doesn't take me long to relax) so quick put the eggs in.

|Eggs! Major component of a quiche!|
Now, thinking ahead, I knew this might not be a favorite with my 9 & 6 year old, so thank goodness for back up chicken nuggets (sometimes you do what you gotta do). And thank goodness I did, because after 15 minutes I went to put those nuggets in to find that half the egg had run through the tart and onto the baking sheet!

In the end, it was very tasty. The husband & I enjoyed it with our salad and I'm looking forward to my lunch tomorrow!
Happy French Friday!
