Song of the day: Black Magic Woman by Santana – superb guitarist. shame on you if you don’t know him !

Yesterday I cook a quiche. I will give you the recipe today as it has been a long time since I posted one. I usually do quiche once a week at least because that is easy and quick to cook and can feed 4 to 8 people if you eat salad with.
