John decided to go vegetarian a good few months ago now which means we eat slightly different things for a lot of meals. Sometimes, we eat a completely different meal altogether.

Now that we have moved away from purees and are now a bigger mix of real meals and finger foods I needed to change how I cook for Erin.

Now, the last time I remember making a quiche was way back in secondary school so we’re talking at least 14 years ago. I did cheat and used a pre-packaged Jus-Rol shortcrust pastry because I
It has taken me years to be able to make a really good yorkshire pudding. I remember it being one of the first things I tried to cook on my own, although I have no idea why.
