The whole week passed “like a whip shot”. I like this expression, it moves my thoughts between Gałczynsky’s Magic Cab and adventures of Indiana Jones.
I walked. I cooked. I thought. I even composed a list of New Year’s resolutions.
Usually I do not do this, because I assume that what will be, will be; that does not make sense; and I have no chance to clear the list anyway; but… this springish weather is good for thinking. So, this is my list.
1. Write more.
Not only on the blog, but it will be my priority this year. But also write more to friends, even if just to say “hello, how are you?”. Write and finish some abandoned projects, for which there was not enough inspiration and will.
2. Less postpone.
I am the Empress of Procrastination. I missed so many things in my life, because I moved the meeting to another day, because I wrote a message two days later, I left home an hour late. All of these situations have in common one thing – “I’ll do this later.”
3. Make sourdough bread.
Own sourdough. So far, no leaven survived pass the fourth day. Once, cats claw was caught in cheesecloth and my lovely cat, in panic, blew leaven all over the room. Once, I got mold in the jar. Once, it died, because I forgot about it. Every previous attempt ended in spectacular failure.
Today, as I write this, I put a brand new spelt sourdough. Keep your fingers crossed!
4. The photography course with Kinga from Green Morning.
Dear family, if you read this, you know…? I have birthday this year, after all. But, seriously, this course is my big dream. Kinga photos are so sunny, so optimistic that I would like to discover that gift in me. Of course, I’m afraid that after the first attempts King will send me home as a “hopeless case”, but maybe not? 🙂
5. Do not waste.
Do not waste food, use leftovers. Do not buy “for later”.
And, to be true, that’s why I made today tarte. In the depths of the refrigerator stuck triangle of gorgonzola cheese and puff pastry that I bought for mushroom pies. Beets huddled sleepily to the potatoes and onions. Only things I had to buy were sweet potato and eggs.
It turned out colorful and delectable.
2 tablespoons coconut milk (you can use cream)
2 medium beets
1 sweet potato
- Place puff pastry into tart mold and then put in the fridge.
- Wash beets and, not peeled, cook for approx. 30 minutes. You don’t need to cook them till soft. After cooking, remove hot water and pour cold water over the beets. When the water is warmer, begin to remove the skin from the vegetables.
- Peel the sweet potato and cook for approx. 10 minutes.
- Beets and sweet potato cut into fairly thick slices (approx. 0.5 cm).
- Spice ingredients grind.
- Beat eggs with coconut milk. Add salt and a bit of spice.
- Cheese cut into cubes – does not have to be fine.
- Preheat the oven to 220C (428F).
- Remove the dough from the refrigerator and pour the eggs. Put the cheese and distribute to evenly cover tart.
- Arrange slices on top of the beet and sweet potato. Season with spice (approx. 1 teaspoon).
- Put in the fridge, if the oven has not yet warmed up.
- Bake tart approx. 18 – 20 minutes.
Enjoy your meal!
