Some (goat's)cheesy ideas

It has been a very snowy and cold weekend in London. I like makes everything look peaceful and pretty...just maybe not March.

In March I need colour. So I made a very 'unwintery' salad.

Extremely easy and colourful Goat's cheese salad

1 pear
Goats cheese (as much or little as you like)
1 not overly ripe avocado
Just cut everything up!

1 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp of white wine vinegar
1 tea spoon of Dijon mustard
1 tea spoon of honey
Small pinch of sea salt
A squeeze of lemon juice

However, salad is obviously never enough so I made this too

Goat's cheese spinach and caramelised onion tart

Puff pastry
1 tbsp of brown sugar
Half a bag of spinach
Half of red onion
1 tbsp of butter
Goat's cheese (as much or little as you want)
1 tbsp of milk

Roll out puff the pastry as per instructions on the packet (unless you are very cool and want to make your own pastry!). Then place it on the baking tray and score a line around (about 1cm away from the edge). Brush the edges with some milk.
Wilt you spinach.
Heat up your butter in a pan. Add finely sliced onion. Cook for a few minutes. Add sugar. Cook for around 10mins (until brown).
Make sure you drain your spinach before placing it on your puff pastry. Then add caramelised onion and top up with sliced Goat's cheese.
Cook for around 20-25mins at 180 degrees (or as per instruction on your puff pastry).

Little Miss S enjoyed it very much.
I served hers with some freshly squeezed carrot and apple juice

And vino for adults (naturally)
