Hurricane Irene Cooking: Tomato, Onion, Olive & Anchovy Tart

I’m so freaking glad I made this. I used a packaged puff pastry base instead of making my own crust and it’s heavenly. I used this recipe from Epicurious as a base. Instead of Jack or Gruyere cheese, I used a strong Irish cheddar on the crust then microplaned parmesan on top. Next time, I may just leave out the anchovies altogether (only put them on half this time).

Finished tomato, onion & half anchovy tart on puff pastry. Time for wine #Irene

I made this to use some of my extra CSA tomatoes from last week, but this didn’t use up nearly as many as I thought it would. Earlier in the afternoon, I also baked some chicken thighs seasoned with sage, garlic powder, salt, pepper, thyme and lime for snacking later on. Tomorrow I may sauté some peaches in butter and whiskey to put over some coconut milk ice cream. What are y’all making this weekend to weather out the storm?

    YUM!!! No storms here in Wisco, just sunny days with the first hints of fall. Hope today goes smoothly and Irene leaves peacefully!

    Jeebus, your fall is already coming up this soon, lady? Irene wasn’t too bad in Brooklyn but the Catskills are getting really hammered right now. Massive flooding. I’m almost wondering why Gov. Cuomo didn’t set up an evacuation plan there. Maybe he did, but the media never talks about upstate. It’s a darn shame.
