This week, the Tuesdays with Dorie crew continued on its puff pastry spree with an Alsatian Onion Tart. So of course, I am featuring a picture of a road sign.
For some reason, Alsace makes me think of the Alps (Yes, I know that Alsace is not in the Alps - I can't help where my mind takes me).
And the Alps make me think of moose.
Which remind me of all the Elk that we saw up at the Grand Canyon.
And since Elk related pictures are much more attractive than any of my pictures of this tart, I present to you an "look out for elk" road sign.
It all makes sense now, right?
It's been a while since I used Cher logic in a post - I figured I was long overdue...
Back to puff pastry...
This week's Tuesdays with Dorie challenge was another recipe with the goal of using up puff pastry scraps.
Puff pastry was rolled into a 12" round and topped with onions that had been slow cooked in chicken broth (with a touch of cream and some seasonings added at the end) and sprinkled with bacon (because, well, bacon...). Because I had rolled out the crust and prepared the onion filling ahead of time (wrap well and store in the refrigerator until ready to use), this became part of a weeknight-friendly dinner. I cooked the bacon while the oven warmed up, assembled and baked it off. It may not win any beauty awards, but paired with leftover butternut squash soup, it was one of those weeknight meals that didn't make me grumpy... (Who really wants to spend an hour over the stove and then handle all that clean up after working all day?)
At the end of the day, not being grumpy IS an accomplishment all on its own...
