I hope you are all having a good time and celebrating sunny summer days. It feels great, a bit hot, but I am not complaining.
It takes so little to make me feel happy and excited. And this weekend was full of excitement: I met one of my fav writers, met up with friends, got a present without an occasion, read a book, ate chocolate and found these beautiful organic vegetables in the Farmers market and ate it.
I really couldn't keep it to myself this time, because vegetables can be very exciting! If I'll have my own garden one day I will definitely grow as many unusual coloured veg as I can find.

It's been a few weeks and four pears were forgotten in our little vegetable storage box. It does happen that in our home we buy food with intentions to eat it and we never do and sometimes it gets wasted, which I do feel really bad about.
All morning I was thinking what could I make from these pears and decided to bake a tart - a quick one, with ready to use shortcrust pastry.
Ingredients for the filing:4 pears, cored and thinly sliced
2/3 cup sugar
2 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
2 Tbs. double cream
1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
3 Tbs. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. vanilla extract
