in absentia


A friend is getting married, but we won’t be able to make the trip from Colombia to Canada in order to observe the ceremony. The bride suggested that I prepare a quiche or lasagna to celebrate from afar. Joke or no, I took her suggestion. Last night, the quiche. This morning the lasagna.

My quiche included leek, red onion, ground pork and tilst cheese.  It could have used more salt for the filling, but I thought the crust was pretty decent. I decided to make a double, rather than single-crust, and added a few tablespoons of grated cheese to the dough.


Lasagna noodles cost more than I want to pay for the quality you receive at my local grocery stores, so I decided to make mine from scratch this time around. Even without special semolina flour, they turned out nicely: flour, egg and olive oil.  The layers were ground pork with neapolitan sauce, shredded zucchini, ricotta-egg, and another layer of meat and sauce, topped with shredded mozzarella.

Congratulations to the bride and groom. Maybe you can freeze a portion of each in addition to the wedding cake for the 1st anniversary?

*Not a serious recommendation
