W44 – Tarte aux poires Williams
It has been a while since i have posted anything about food.. Mostly because I feel that our outdoor adventure beat what I/we do at home on a weekly basis, also I have so much to say about food and I want to keep my posts short and blog simple with one outline of my week 🙂 Well, as most of you know, when you live on a budget or frugally, meal planning is one of your best friend. I cook everyday lunch/dinner and a couple of times a week bake bread and pastries. To be honest there is not really anything new here since I grew up in a foodie family where women and men use their kitchen, cook and sit at the table to eat lunch/dinner. However even if i was lucky enough to grow up in such a family, I never enjoyed cooking as much as I do now.. It is challenging/frustrating/rewarding for me to come up with a meal plan that is not repetitive and works for everyone (cost/quality/taste/calories). Mr H is also a foodie/great cook and brings his own coffee/lunch/snacks to work.. He needs A LOT of calories/day to keep up with what he burns while biking and blowing glass.. So I feel like it is my “job” to make sure that he is well fed and does not get too grumpy 🙂 Sometimes the baking goods are not part of the meal plan grocery list -> That pear tart with shortcrust pastry was a success story bake from scratch with what we had in our cupboards!
