However, over the weekend I found a recipe for flaky (puff) pastry and *proceeded to make it*. It's a VERY long and involved process but I'm pleased to say it turned out quite well in the end. I made a batch of sausage rolls for His Nibs and will use the rest for a chicken and mushroom pie which I'll serve tonight.
Sausage rolls in flaky pastry served hot for lunch yesterday
Mondays is also my bread baking day. I bake a loaf of whole wheat bread for myself which lasts me until Saturday. I bring in South African whole meal and instant dry yeast.

Grant had four mini-sausage rolls and Worcestershire Sauce for lunch while I enjoyed my ubiquitous sandwich of cottage cheese and salad with a cup of rooibos (SA herb) tea

Note: ** Why did I make my own [difficult] flaky pastry? Well, living in the African boondocks, there just is no such item as ready-made pastry available. Sigh...
Here's wishing you all a wonderful week!
