I made the scones first, then moved on to the quiche. It was a process, and took far longer than I thought it would. I enjoyed it all, because, for me, the fun is in the cooking, but it took a very long time. By the time they were both done and edible, it was 1 PM. So now I'm having quiche and scones for a late lunch.
The scones were made with a cinnamon struessel muffin mix, and they were good, but disappointing in that they weren't markedly better than the muffins you make from the same mix. So why go to the extra effort of scones?
The quiche was not as good as Lauren's - didn't have as much flavor and was soggy. I hate soggy eggs, it makes me think they're not cooked.
Neither of the dishes turned out bad, but on a scale of 10, hoping that they'd at least be a 9, they were a 7.5 or 8. Good breakfast/brunch/late lunch, but nothing to write home about. It's probably a good thing none of you came over, because I would have been disappointed.
So Julia Child has two things over me: #1) She actually worked as a spy, and I got rejected by the CIA, and #2) Her dishes were always a 10, I'm sure.
