It’s Greek to me

14 Jan

The quiche. Unlike my confusion surrounding my Danish Potato Salad(not that Danish according to a Dane!)I get this quiche. I don’t think quiche is Greek, per se. But Greek cuisine does have things like tomatoes and feta so I get why they call this Greek. I get it. Unlike life. Which I don’t get. And I don’t think I should.
I also don’t get olives.
I hate them. Actually, it seems to run in my family on both sides-maternally and paternally.
My mom claims that one time she actually enjoyed an olive in France. One time. Clearly she was intoxicated on the vin they serve there.
All this is to say, I left the olives out of this quiche, but if you are not a Clifford, or making this for one, feel free to add some and kick up the Greek-i-ness.

Any foods you can’t stand? Is it familial?
