What a Tart!

Once upon a Saturday, while home alone and foraging for food, I started dragging random leftovers & ingredients out of the fridge. I happened to have some left over pie dough - yeah, yeah... who has leftover pie dough laying around, you ask? Well, if you bite the bullet, trash the kitchen counter, make a batch, and only use a bit of it, you will too. I also had some leftover chicken, a potato, those sundried tomatoes & goat cheese. So I carmelized some onions, chopped up some rosemary, oh! I almost forgot the secret ingredient!!! A little bit of green apple. Roll out the dough, throw everything inside brush the crust with a little oil, and throw it in the oven till golden. Of course, there are a hundred improvs for this one. Throw whatever you have in some crust and grind!

We brought the leftovers on an outing the next day, & it was pretty good cold, straight out of the tinfoil, and dusted with a bit of unintentional sand!

Embrace your inner tart & go for it!
