My main aim during this Challenge is to make full use of what we have, no matter what it is and where it's from and I'm enjoying getting the old grey cells working and getting back to making things that I haven't made for a while.
I really fancied something in pastry the other day and now that my supermarket ready-made pastry is all but gone from the freezer, I think there is one Puff pastry and one Filo pastry pack left in the chest freezer, but no shortcrust. So I made my own!! It's so simple to make and buying it in even at 'yellow stickered' prices will never be as cheap as making my own. I forgot how quick it was and now I will pretty much always make my own from scratch again.
I quickly whizzed it together in the food processor, something I have to do as I not have the requisite cold hands needed to make pastry, and by touching it as little as possible it always comes out better.
I filled my little pasties with a mix of crumbled Feta, chopped walnuts and lots of wilted spinach, they were delicious eaten two days running with a bowl of homemade soup for lunch.
