sunterra maple cheddar burgers and rustic pear tart
I love having a Sunterra Market nearby, but I have to be very very careful just to buy specific specialty items there and NOT go grocery shopping. For it is too expensive for everyday groceries.
a. cheese scones
b. ginger pasta salad
c. metro lemon water
d. applewood cheddar
e. food magazines
f. the butcher’s wares
I will make exceptions for these items.
There is a knowledgeable lady butcher behind the counter. From her, I buy their premade burgers. Sometimes they are bison, but this time they were maple cheddar. They were most delicious – a perfect combo of cheesy filling, ground beef and carmelized maple topping.
I like my burgers without a top bun and piled high with mushrooms and spinach sautéed in garlic. And you will see a slice of processed cheese peeking out – I am a bit of a neanderthal that way.
One of the blogs I follow is Straight from the Farm. Ella and I tried to make her Rustic Pear Tart tonight. It was a bit of a disaster. Pastry and us do not get along. Pastry ripped and I forgot the sugar and so put it on top and of course it leaked all over the baking pan, and we didn’t have enough pears so I put in a couple of apples and blueberries and it just went on and on. But we will try again! We will not be foiled! Here is a photo, but check out Straight from the Farm for the proper recipe and lovely pictures.
