1. Has everyone entered my giveaway?!?! Make sure you do. It ends tonight and I will announce the winner tomorrow at noon PST.
2. I’ve been watching this little snookum for the past few days while my parents are away in Mexico.
Since my mom is normally home most days with her, she isn’t really used to being left at home all day. Which is what happens when she stays with Mr. Delish and I, since we both work full time. So my Mom and I decided that we would take her to doggie daycare a couple of the days while they were away, just so she wouldn’t be pent up in the house all day long.
So yesterday I dropped her off in the morning on the way to work and I was totally amazed at how awesome the place was. Just doggies running around in a huge yard of cedar mulch. There was a bunch of big toys in the yard for the dogs to run around and play on. Seriously, it looked like the most fun ever. So I picked her up after work (over 9 hours later) and they told me that she literally played the entire day. Like didn’t rest once.
Usually she’s all over the car trying to get into the front seat and just being plain crazy, but when I took her home last night she passed right out and then didn’t want to get out of the car. I had to carry her inside and she ended up just sleeping downstairs because she was too lazy to walk upstairs.
I swear she’s been sleeping ever since.
3. Our Valentines day dinner was SO delicious last night! Anyone that lives in the Vancouver area, I highly recommend that you try Pearl Urban Bistro, which is on White Rock beach. Very yummy.
4. I have the easiest almost non-recipe for you today. Let’s GO!
Roll out a sheet of puff pastry.
Stick the pastry square into a mini tart pan, the ones I have are little individual ones but you can also use those mini muffin type pans.
My tarts look pretty rough, hey? I must have been impatient
every day of my life that day. That’s okay they still turned out pretty in the end.
Stick a piece of brie in each tart.
Top the brie with about a teaspoon of fig preserves.
And bake them in a preheated oven for a few minutes.
Mmmm sweet and cheesy and gooey. Perfect!
I ended up serving mine with a drizzle of reduced balsamic vinegar (which i forgot to take a picture of!)
They’re sweet and salty and the perfect bite size.
Brie and Fig Bites:
Makes about 20 tarts
1 sheet (half a package) all butter puff pastry, defrosted
1/2 cup brie, cut into 20 equal pieces
1/4 cup fig preserves
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Grab your defrosted puff pastry sheet and cut into 20 equal squares. Place each square into a mini tart pan and top with a piece of brie and about a teaspoon of the fig preserves.
Bake for about 12-13 minutes until puffed and slightly browned. Allow to cool slightly, about 2-3 minutes, before removing them from the pan.
