Happy Easter weekend!

I hope that you’re having a lovely one…

Harry’s been cutting out pictures from junk-shop books to decorate Easter bags;

…Whilst I’ve been harvesting a couple of branches of magnolia to place in a vase in the kitchen, strung with egg decorations (Spring and Easter have collided deliciously in the garden this year; the lawn is a drift of apple blossom and colour).IMG_6730

It’s been (just) warm enough to eat outside, so I used first-of-the-season Coeur de Boeuf tomatoes for these very moreish simple tarts;

Just cut a round of pre-made puff pastry, spread with feta or goats cheese, and place a slice of tomato on top.  Bake for 10mins before leaving to cool.  Decorate with olive and basil and drizzle with a little olive oil and balsamic glaze.  Eat when ever-so-slightly still warm, preferably with a glass of sauvignon blanc – and home-grown cress of course!.

Have a wonderful (rest of the) weekend!
