My son has asked me for Beef Wellington about 10 times in the last week after seeing it on Master Chef Junior. I vaguely even knew what Beef Wellington was--although I did know it involved puff pastry--which got me thinking about making puff pastry even though I already have way too much to do and it will certainly take up precious time that could be spent on wrapping or packing.
A pear tart with some amazing pears that were sent to me as a holiday gift is also on my "to do" list for today.
Wow. There is a lot to do--which is why I haven't blogged much since Thanksgiving. It's all been very good--but I am just trying to get through the day without a dishwasher.
Happy everything. Here is a photo of my mountain of dishes drying.
