I hate Saturdays, I think I must be the only one who does (please speak up if you hate it too!) In fact I just really dislike weekends. Our little house isn’t big enough to fit all these people in at the weekend and we are all constantly on top of one another. Sometimes, it’s lovely. We’re planning on all going out for dinner for Mothers Day as there are three mothers in our house and none of us want to cook, so I’m sure that’ll be a nice weekend (I’m also meeting a friend in the city on the Saturday AND it’s a week before my birthday).. so I guess it’s not all bad. This weekend however.. urgh..
I DID have a good time with my little girl today, she’s so sweet and clever. I often feel very smug taking her out as she’s so well behaved for a one year old. I have been told this will change but at the moment it’s great. I’m so proud that she’s my little girl.
So today I have to share with you another delicious recipe from The Little Paris Kitchen. This has become a favourite in our house, we’ve had it three time this weeks! It’s not amazingly healthy but I have swapped some of the ingredients to make it a bit better… and it obviously works as this week I made it to my target weight! I am now officially 9 Stone! I plan on losing a bit more to give me some room to eat loads of rubbish and drink some cocktails over my birthday next month.
Anyway, the recipe is for a Tarte Flambée. I’m sure it’s more of a summer recipe, but my mum and I have decided eating it reminds us of summer! So in case anyone is in need of some summer memories, I urge you to give this a go!
1/3 Red Onion
4 Bacon Medallions
3 Tbsp Low/Half Fat Crème fraîch
Tsp Thyme (dry or fresh)
What You Need
Baking Tray, Table Spoon, Tea Spoon, Greaseproof Paper, Knife, Chopping Board
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees or gas mark 6. Then line the baking tray with grease proof paper.
- Roll out (or cut to size) the puff pastry and place it into the lined baking tray.
- Spread the three table spoons of crème fraîch over the puff pastry.
- Chop up the onion and bacon, then scatter over the tart.
- Sprinkle on the thyme and pop into the oven for 20-30 minutes.
- This can be eaten hot or cold (I’ve tried both and they are delicious). Serve with a green salad.
Another delicious lunch time treat. When dieting, lunch is always the meal I struggle with! Breakfast is usually easy with a bowl of special K, yoghurt or cereal bar and dinner is easy too as I can cook for more people.. but lunch.. I get so bored of sandwiches or soup all the time that I need to have something different and this is so easy! Let me know if you try it.
