Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Savory Puff Pastry Tart

on March 5, 2019

An evening to myself can be dinner on a tray in front of Netflix or a relaxed, indulgent treat. Tonight? The treat.

I concocted a savory tart out of frozen puff pastry, goat cheese, caramelized onions, chicken, and fresh rosemary.

I lit the candles, turned on one of my favorite CDs (the soundtrack to a romantic comedy with Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline called “French Kiss”), and sat down with an advance reading copy of Ruth Reichl’s Gourmet memoir, Save Me the Plums.

I savored Reichl’s colorful and touching writing, the jaunty French music, the soft light, the flakes of pastry and smears of cheese, the leisure to sit here as long as I felt like, the quiet when the CD ended.

On a Monday night, with the rest of the work week to come, I treated myself the way I would a guest, with love and respect. Hostess and guest in one…perfect together.
