Opportunities to behave like a Christian aren't limited to attending a sunrise service. They are present in our everyday lives--letting someone in front of you in traffic, helping someone in need, like the cyclist I helped with a flat on my ride today. Furthermore, I don't think that spirituality needs to be limited to Christianity. A round about way of letting you know I didn't go to church today, and I don't feel guilty about it.
We didn't hit any Easter Sunday buffets either. We had left over quiche on the porch with a nice tablecloth and special cocktails.
I used Pepperidge farm puff pastry to line my tart tin, but feel free to substitute a pastry crust. Do bake "blind" for 15 min to prevent the soggy crust that I experienced.
1 10" tart shell--prebaked or not
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
4 oz. goat cheese crumbled
4 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1 cup chopped leeks (braised and cooled or sauteed)
Mix all ingredients and pour into tart shell. Bake at 350F for about 30-40 min until just set in the center. Cool slightly prior to serving. Refrigerates and reheats well.
1 TBS blood orange bitters
equal parts grapefruit juice and soda water
1 TBS Aperol
equal parts grapefruit juice and sparkling wine
I supremed about 7 lb worth of grapefruit this morning and then ran the left over "cores" through my juicer. Sophie has discovered she likes grapefruit as long as it is pulp-free, and my juicer does a nice job of keeping out the chunks. If you have the time/inclination some crushed mint would be a nice addition.
