A fast economical tart!

No - not me!!



I made a mediteranian tart for lunch boxes. The packet of Puff Pastry (15p from my super special little shop which ive still not told you about!) was spread with a little pesto made from a huge bunch of Asda "whoopsed" Basil (20p), sliced "whoopsed" tomatoes and red peppers (60p for a great big bag), dotted with Mozzerella and even more Basil, and cooked to perfection.





Pass me a glass of Chianti!

Mmm - looks wonderful! I'm on my way to yours for tea;)

You can't beat ready-made packets of pastry - they're worth the money. I'm utter rubbish at making pastry - warm hands you see.

Your tart looks rather scrumtious - I make nearly an identical tart, but use tallegio cheese instead of mozzerella on mine.

So simple, yet so very tasty.

PS - Violet went straight to her new bag this morning, slung it over her should and told me she was off to school :0)

It looks and sounds very good, or should I say 'molto buon'.

Is 'whoopsed' a northern expression for passed its sell-by date?

I'd happily join you for a slice of that and a glass of chianti, even though its not yet 10 am. Tart is one of my favourite words.

Thank you for the camping advice Diane, the forcast doesn't look so good at the moment, not the best news for our maiden voyage!! Any advice for rainy trips under canvas would be heartily welcomed with open arms!

Much love
