Real Men Don't Need Quiche

When I have the time and energy to do more than open a Stouffers Lasagne, I pride myself on being able to whip up a veritable gastronomic feast and expect due appreciation. It was on just such an occasion that having produced a delightful spinach and gorgonzola quiche (recipe below) that my husband took one large mouthful and said “What's this?”  In a tone which left no doubt that he thought it was absolutely revolting. 

Never one to over-react I leapt up from the table screaming like a banshee “WHAT DO YOU MEAN? YOU DON'T LIKE IT?!! IT'S WONDERFUL”

“I don't like gorgonzola” he admitted  “I've never liked gorgonzola.”

“Oh GREAT” I shouted (doing my Basil Fawlty impression) “so now you don't like garlic, raw onions, pastries, baked potatoes, nuts in chocolate, butter on your vegetables, anything in batter, chutney, ginger AND gorgonzola!”

Mufasa remained calm and picked at the salad on his plate while pushing his quiche to the side in a martyr like fashion. I was seized by a childish and overwhelming desire to tip the whole lot over his head but common sense prevailed and I stomped into the kitchen returning some minutes later with a replacement meal of fish fingers and baked beans. This was demolished gratefully, convincing me that I should reserve vaguely sophisticated food for my girl lunches.

Once satiated Mufasa was more than willing to apologize for his appalling and ungrateful attitude and to say he would fully understand if I never made quiche again.
