I've had such a flat-out week this week. Lots of recipe work for clients and meetings, and then I also went to Sydney for just a few hours as the nutritionist and ambassador for Quinoa & Co, a new ready-to-eat pack with yummy relishes. It honestly involved hopping onto the plane, which was delayed because of the crazy weather lately, arriving in Sydney, heading to the event (which was awesome - we did pottery and I made my own bowl and plate!) and then heading back to the airport to come home. Such a whirlwind, but SO much fun!
Needless to say, I'm a little wrecked. That's all in addition to packing my whole house up because I move next week...eeeek!
In amongst it all, I took some time out to watch Julie & Julia with Frankie on my lap with some tea and chocolate because I was zonked and sometimes, you just need chocolate and a movie.
I felt so inspired to cook something up once it had finished but for the obvious reason of moving house, didn't have too many ingredients around.
Some wilty rhubarb and soft strawberries did the trick along with some good-quality puff pastry I had in the freezer. A simple, delicate and delicious dessert was on the table in under an hour and I ate every last pastry crumb.
- 2 cups rhubarb, sliced
