I stopped off and the chippy and had cod n chips with mushy peas..
My sister and I decided to meet up at mums on Saturday and I said I’d take lunch, so on Friday I had a moment of insanity and spent the afternoon baking!
I made 2 quiches..
Rather an indulgent butter pastry which is well worth the calories..
4 tsp water..
and you know the rest.
I baked the pastry blind for 20 minutes.
I made the egg custard using 2 eggs and half a pot of creme fraiche for each one and filled them with peppers, mushrooms, bacon, tomato, spring onions, cheese and a little chilli, then baked them for 30 minutes with the filling in.
Then with the pastry trimmings I made sausage rolls, using The Black Farmers daughter’s chipolatas and because I had more sausage than pastry, made a 3oz flour and 2oz suet pastry too to use them up..
Then just as I thought I’d got over it decided to make choux pastry..
Apparently you can only make choux with plain flour, but as I had only SR I decided to break the mold and use that, so to all the people who commented on all of the forums I looked at with regards to using SR flour..
Well actually you can, they do rise and they do taste ok, so ner ner ner….
I made eclairs and grande profiteroles.
and while I was at it, I made chick pea, spinach and left over roast potato balls to go with the north African chicken dish I was making for dinner..
Dead simple, I just whizzed up a few wilted spinach leaves, left over roast potatoes and chick peas in my mini blender, seasoned it and molded it into balls and roasted them.
On Saturday when I got in from my day out I stopped off at the chippy at had cod n chips with mushy peas..
