Would you like to swing on a star

carry moonbeams home in a jar

and be better off than you are

or would you rather be a mule


Side View’s weekend theme is STAR.

I’m too focussed on my work to think about anything clever; so here’s a recipe for the beef pies I made last night:

500g finely chopped rump steak 

1 large onion finely diced 

125ml beef stock (I used NoMU beef Fond)

1 tablespoon Balsamic reduction (I used Verlaque’s Porcini Mushroom)

2 tablespoons tomato paste

Pepper to taste 

Fry it all up, allow the liquid to reduce, let it cool down.

Cut 1 sheet ready rolled puff pastry into 8 rectangles. Place beef mixture onto 4 of these and place the remaining 4 on top; press down edges to seal. Bake at 180C until done, mine took 35 minutes.

Now back to work, because the HORRORscope for my STAR sign today does not bode well at all…

Hi Cindy-Ann! Here is your Daily Horoscope for Friday, March 25

  1. Star, jar, are… ?MULE? Not quite as perfect as those pies (in my mind 😉 Pastry is one of the things I missed most while I was gone. Hopefully you’ll soon be able to add a well deserved break to your string of good fortune of late 🙂 In your case a holiday is as good as a holiday 🙂 Have a great weekend!
