Turnover a new leaf?

Continuing in the cookery theme I used up the rest of the puff pastry last night to make some delightful Apple Turnovers. The rest of the leadership team and student team enjoyed them over coffee as we caught up on the year just gone and the year now ahead of us.

Nice cooking does not have to be complicated – all it takes, as with so many things in life, is just a little time and concentrated effort. And when you get results like the following (badly captured in poor light with my O2 XDA) it really is worth it:

Note I finished this post using Windows Live Writer, which seems like a nice little Windows App for posting to a variety of blogs.  More on that later.

Tomorrow night will be Sea Bass – my first real adventure into the fish world (apart from the no-brainer Salmon, Cod or Plaice).  Food is so diversely interesting!

Pies and Pastry

Finally, we got around to making a pie.  And what a joy it was!  Add steak and kidney, onions, flour, beef stock and puff pastry together, whack in the oven for 2 hours and out comes a delicious pie.
