I've succumbed to Pioneer Woman. Well not really.

This Friday we had an old school friend of mine and her husband over for dinner and I decided to make what Alec and I have come to refer to as luxury pie. This requires puff pastry and like all normal human beings we bought the ready rolled frozen stuff from the supermarket. (Another great thing about living in a Jewish area: Tescos sells kosher puff pastry.) This left the dilemma of what to do with the rest of it which would have to be defrosted to get enough for the pie top. We figured maybe we could make some kind of apple tarts or something with it (my words were "think vol-au-vents but with apples in them") and to check that this wasn't a terrible idea I googled "puff pastry apple tarts", which took me here. We didn't quite follow the recipe in that we had a lot of puff pastry to use up so we just cut out a bit as big as our entire baking tray and layered the apples on top. But it was tasty and super quick and easy. Anyway, here is slightly out of focus, not that food pornie photo of the one I made this afternoon to use up the last of the puff pastry.

My journal has become a little quiet and dull recently. I moved to a new town and started a new job, which means I am busier and my job places limits on what I can say in public forums. I'm still getting a feel for where the line is and in the mean time mainly sticking with posts about food.
