We were having an Italian sunday over here.
My kids love Italian food.
We made large pizza's and fed, besides our family, the neighbors too.
For dessert 'the girl next door' served Pavlova with summer fruits.
(My very very favorite)
For a change,
I made this very lovely
'Crostada di fichi'
For the first time,
from 'Jamie's Italy'.
Thanks universe for sending Jamie,
his food is just perfect to feed families and friends.
A big hit.
a very intense taste without being too much.
You can feed lost and lots
because of the 'small' portions.
Perfect to share in our little community.
The recipe calls for fresh figs,
I used dried ones which I soaked.
I added a dollop of home made fig jam on top of the figs,
just before it went in the oven.
I reduced the amount of sugar in the frangipane,
I like it a little less sweet.
The recipe can be found HERE.
In the rest of my spare time,
I tried to sew a bit more.
I screen printed some fabric on friday,
and it was calling my name at the kitchen table all day.
I made a shopper XL
I quickly have to make another one,
I ♥ her
