Blizzard Breakfast

January 21st, 2019

Earlier this week I made a batch of rough puff pastry. Originally, it was supposed to be for dinner that evening, but I didn’t finish it in time. I was hoping it would a good batch, but wasn’t sure since it was my first time making any kind of a puffy pastry. I’ve been wanting to make the recipe for egg galettes from the ‘Jerusalem’ cookbook a few years ago, since I had a batch of pastry, I figured I’d give it a try.

It was well worth it, the pastry puffed nicely, the roasted red peppers and onions were perfect, and thankfully the chicken have been laying a few eggs once again to top it all off with more homeraised goodness. It’s a great recipe and would definitely be quick and easy if using store bought pastry. I was happy to have red peppers in the freezer, herbs from the basement garden, onions in the pantry, and eggs from the chickens to make it mostly produced on the farm.

What delicious goodness have you been trying/baking/eating lately?

    Susy, the specialty last week was chili. This week’s menu is bean soup. Yes, I do like soup. I could eat soup every day.

    The forecasters hyped a big huge storm for three days with predictions of snow as much as 12 inches. What did we get? I wee little bit of freezing rain and not flake of snow. So supposedly we missed the storm and it all went east. So what did we get on Sunday when there was no snow supposed to happen? One inch of snow. I think God’s messing with these forecasters just for fun.

    Have a great puffy pastry for breakfast day.
