Quiche (Lorraine)

Do not be intimated by it's name - Quiche Lorraine,  a classic french dish.  Do not fret.  It is only an open tart with filling of custard and savoury ingredients like ham, onions and cheese.  

I was rummaging through the fridge, trying to find something that would whet my disinterested appetite when I came across some whimpy carrots, a slightly shriveled leek.  What would I do to use them before they expire.  Going shopping was no option so I have to make do with whatever I had lying around the house/fridge.  My eyes finally settled on a tart tin and I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to put together the receipe for R & D.

Instead of going through all the trouble of measuring, kneading flour and butter for shortcrust pastry, I used ready made flaky pastry.
 Please excuse the quantities stated - they're between 'about, some, roughly, abit of.........'
