I am not sure what it is about autumn that makes me want to knit? But it does, so a little bit of internet shopping and some lovely yarn has been purchased so that I can make small person a new jumper:
As you might be able to see from the label the yarn contains 25% British wool – I was quite pleased that I found this and it wasn’t ferociously expensive.
Some baking got done yesterday. On Sunday we had a beefy-goodness casserole and I made a lot in order to make some pies for the freezer. I had kept the extra in the fridge since Sunday and yesterday had a pastry making session (also made a flan for dinner – more of which in a minute) and got two pies made and put in the freezer:
And for dinner we had a red onion, bacon and brie tart:
Line a quiche dish with pastry (pastry made with 1/2 fat to flour – I always use lard for savoury pastry)
Fry (slowly) lots of chopped red onion until they are softened and slightly caramelised.
Chop up some streaky bacon rashers and fry them off
Slice up a good piece of brie
Whisk up eggs, cream, and lots of seasoning
Assemble tart: onions first, a few thin slices of brie, then scatter the bacon pieces, over this pour the beaten egg mixture, top with more slices of brie and bake at 190 for about 40 minutes.
I only remembered to photograph the flan after we had cut in to it but I hope the final photo shows enough for you to see what it was like.
It did taste great! This is definitely one I shall be making again. But, then, bacon and brie – what’s not to like!
Hope you are all having a good day.
