My blogging plans were cast to one side this weekend as I arrived home on Friday and realised that I had left my laptop cable in work…rookie mistake!
We had a great weekend though, seeing our friends for a birthday BBQ on Saturday (and yes, there was some classic British barbecuing-in-the-rain action!), a visit from my parents and our village breakfast on Sunday followed by a long walk and a few beers at the pub. I also had a mountain of books to mark but that doesn’t sound quite so exciting!
Today, I wanted to share a great little recipe that was actually my way of using up some leftover puff pastry after making a pie. It is quick, easy, has very few ingredients and is delicious warm or chilled the next day for lunch.
I decided not to bother with weights and amounts for his recipe as you can make one huge pie or lots of little individual ones depending on how much pastry you have.
Puff pastry (I always buy mine but high fives if yours is homemade!)
A block of feta cheese
Tomatoes, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper
Balsamic vinegar (optional)
How to make it
o Begin by preheating your oven to 180°C, Gas Mark 4
o Sprinkle over some dried thyme and a good amount of salt and pepper (although not too much salt as the feta is quite salty)
I’m off to Pilates now – my first session in four weeks so I expect to be aching tomorrow!
