I had some milk+egg+vanilla mixture leftover from the bread pudding and felt it would be a waste to throw it away (9 eggs and 1 vanilla bean). I decided to make a very simple egg tart using store brought puff pastry. Didn't use a recipe and wasn't sure how long I was supposed to leave it in. It sunk a little when I took it out but the custard was so yum. I should've made creme brulee or creme caramel with it instead of the tarts.
The cat loved it too. I was cleaning my room and that sneaky bastard ate all the custard in the 6 mini tarts I made!!!
The puff pastry is sold in packs of 10. I had 4 left which I used to make sardine puffs. When I was younger, Mum used to prepare sardine sandwiches for me. I haven't had it in years but I saw a tin of sardines at the supermarket last week and bought one to take home. I fried it with some chillis and red onions.
I also have a new plan. I am a student now which means that we have significantly less to spend. Besides that, my parents will be visiting us in July and I would like to take them on holiday and frankly, even food for 4, train tickets (30 euro per person to Amsterdam and so on!) , entrance tickets and so forth will blow my budget out of the window. Our grocery bill is on the high side at 500 euro a month (The average Dutch family spends about 400 euro and that means 2 parents+2 kids. There's only 2 of us here..) so we have a new rule now. Dinners are to cost less than 5 euro or 35 euro per week. The grocery bill must not exceed 75 euro/week.
MUST start saving.
