10 days after my due date and still no sign of no. 3… I thought he would have announced himself by now but no such luck 😉 He’s still doing well so I guess all we can do is wait till he comes and if he decides not to, I will be induced on Thursday so he’ll born Friday at the latest.
I’ll leave you with a strawberry tart I made for my mum on Mother’s Day. The crust is my favourite sweet shortcrust pastry from Donna Hay that I pretty much always use for tarts. Love the fact that it only uses flour, butter, a little sugar and some ice water. I love recipes with minimal ingredients 🙂
The filling is a pastry cream I made last year as well but this time I was too lazy to separate eggs (and I didn’t want to have left-over egg whites either after having so many after making sirnica) so instead of using egg yolks only, I used whole eggs. Though taste wise it was ok, the colour wasn’t very pretty. Will definitely use egg yolks next time.
You will find the recipe for the pastry cream here. This time I didn’t use bergamot essential oil to flavour it but some lemon zest.
