I felt a bit cooky yesterday. I have this thing about trying hard not to waste anything so some meals tend to involve whats in the fridge, freezer or cupboards. Dog was sceptical.
Yesterday that was a roll of puff pastry, some left over cauliflower cheese and mash and some bits of veg: tomatoes, a pepper, an aubergine, the end of some parsley.
I added a pot of ricotta to the cauli/spuds and having prebaked the pastry on a baking tray, spread the mix on the bottom and piled the chopped veg on top.
Languishing in the cupboards there was a bit of dried fruit. In thr freezer some small brioche rolls. Having soaked the fruit in boiling water I put in a trifle bowl, piled in the broken brioche and left to soak. Meanwhile I made a coconut milk custard with one 400ml can of the milk, three egg yolks, some sugar and cornflower (35g of each) and some soaked gelatine. That went on top, and after being chilled (the trifle, not me) another Voilà!
Because I was on a roll and the supermarket had some out of date raspberries and I had a tin of peaches I made a peach melba cake….
The top caught a little but trimmed and frosted today ot should be lovely.
That was fun. Not much writing though… not sure Dog approved…
