However, there was a slight difference in the past Christmas. Instead of bringing back pretty dresses, cosmetics, heels and bags from my shopping sprees; FOOD was the main focus of my shopping spree. Retailers and super markets were throwing great discounts on a daily basis to spur the weakened European shoppers. Without realizing, I ended up with a fridge filled to the brim with food items such as cheeses, frozen pastries, candies, cold cuts, bread spreads, cookies, cakes, sauces etcs.
Most of the food, especially frozen pastries usually have a shorter life span. Hence, I have been diligently clearing my stocks for the past few weeks. ('...friends, this is the consequences of heavy shopping', confession of a shopaholic). Chicken & Pesto Mini Quiche from Albert Heijn was my featured lunch meal.
|Chicken and Pesto Mini Quiche|
After 15 minutes, the moment of truth has arrived. It smelled surprisingly good when I took it out from the oven. First bite and I was totally blown away. It tasted absolutely yummy where the crust was thin and crunchy, the filling (chicken, egg, tomato, onion, pesto, basil, garlic and Maasdam cheese) was fluffy and moist. There were generous portion of well seasoned chunky chicken pieces and tomatoes hidden underneath a layer of well baked cheese ... yum!
This mini pesto quiche was unfortunately a little too mini for me. I later regret for not getting the regular size instead. Time to source for another batch of yummy chicken and pesto mini quiche?
