Rice Tomato Torte & my favorite mug cup from iittala
I never thought about making a quiche with rice so it was very innovative idea for me. You make the crust with rice, egg and cheese.
and Add stuffs like tomatoes, cheese and mixture of egg and milk.
I really liked the tomato in it. The tomato tasted so intense and burst with flavors. I think it was good to use grape tomato.
Today, I would like to show you guys my favorite my cup. I found this mug cup when I went to visit Sweden a few years back. The company's name is iittala. You might have heard about them. And these are my favorite cups from them. Ta-da~.
Aren't they beautiful? This is a product line called "Taika". "Taika" means "Magic" in Finish. I think it is a great name for fantastical design like this. The line also has bowls and plates, etc. Since I was on a trip and couldn't buy big things, I only bought one navy and one white mug cup. I was so happy when I found this.
And about a year later or so, my mother-in-law bought me red one and another white one since she knew that I like this cup so much. I was so happy to get two more of these cups. It is nice to use this cup when I have someone over. All my friends adore this cup!
I love having coffee or tea and I take hot drinks throughout the day quite often. When I use these cup, I feel like the beverage taste better :-)
I found that they sell these on Amazon also. If you are interested in, here is the link. Enjoy your drink!
