Have you learnt that the day prior to this used to be National Quiche Day and International Chardonnay Day? (Or in all probability the other means round.)
No, I didn’t each until when we had had quiche with salad and a correctly chilled glass of the aforementioned for lunch!
The asparagus spears are boiled until merely smooth, cooled then wrapped in slices of ham. I made mine slightly otherwise from Ken’s on account of I only had a small pack of asparagus in the house. So I filled inside the gaps with only some further bits of ham and a couple of cooked sprigs of broccoli. I moreover sprinkled some cheddar on high, just because it looked like a good idea.
We ate ours out of doors inside the glorious sunshine that seemed additional like July than the top of May.
