Bon Appetit!


  1. Well, that is quite the meal!
    I'm not normally a fish eater, but I'm slowly learning to enjoy fish more often. On the other hand, I can't seem to have butter tarts often enough.

  2. BTW, is that your house pictured above? Such a lovely place.

  3. pass the butter tarts please....pleassssse

  4. That looks so amazingly delicous! Have to say I have a weakness for butter tarts too!
    I remember when I had trout at your house J. it was sooooo good...I think I need to drop by for a butter tart!

  5. Looks seriously yummy,shame you are so far away or we could have all joined you.xx

  6. Simple pasta dishes are always the best. The fewer ingredients the better!

    Not too keen on your new comments font... it's quite difficult to read. Sorry.

  7. Rob-BEAR...can't believe YOU don't like fish! Not my house...YET!
    Have to confess, the butter tarts are to-die-for. A recipe from my sister-in-laws mother. I keep the filling made up in the freezer, so when company comes, I mix a batch of pastry and hey-presto, dessert!
    If anyone wants the recipe, let me know.

    Totally agree Cro...let the pasta shine through. Is this font better?

  8. It looks like something that I would put together on a Tuesday or Thursday, except mine would come in a Lean Cuisine package.

  9. Yup. That's much better.... thanks.

  10. J - you certainly impress me - it looks delicious!

  11. sigh
    we had baked beans on toast!

  12. Love beans on toast John...time and place for everything!

  13. Delicious! All of it! I have a serious love affair with butter tarts, especially those in a handmade shell! And as for the age-old debate whether they should be runny or firm, I say runny all the way!

  14. Oh yes Trish (although I had no idea the debate existed!) runny, runny, runny!
    I need to send you this recipe. I keep the filling in the freezer so just have to make the pastry when folks show up. It's seriously good!

  15. Hi Jacqueline, I had trout tonight too...delicious. I am wishing I had that tagliatelle and those butter tarts too!
    Hope you are well :)
    Jeanne xx


Go on...make my day...
