30 Day Challenge- Day 14

About a month ago when my aunt Sue was in town, we had plans to have dinner and hang out. She was making dinner at Katie's apartment and I was looking forward to spending some quality time and getting a homemade meal. That was, until I got an invitation to go and see Coldplay at their LA show at the Forum and I found out the dinner was a vegetable tart.

Anyone who knows me knows that vegetable tart isn't something that really screams my name. I really do wish I was that type of person who had a palette that craved only healthy foods and gravitated towards grains and veggies and all things good for you. But alas I am not.

Well...imagine my surprise when I love love loved the veggie tart! It was a simple crust with bell peppers and onions and just a titch of parmesan cheese on top all baked in the oven and delicious. I had seconds. I forgot all about Coldlpay. It was love.

So today I finally tried to make it on my own. It started out wonderfully and the end result tasted great, but I had a little mishap in the middle when I transported the partially baked tart from a baking pan (while in the oven) to a pie tin. It made the whole thing fall apart and caused me to shake my head, roll my eyes and ask myself why I did that when I envisioned exactly what did happen before I attempted to relo the tart. So it didn't look as pretty as I had hoped, but it tasted just as great as I remembered.

And yes, of course I took a couple of pictures.

The slightly disheveled end product.

I know it looks not all that appealing but I swear it was good! After dinner with the girls, we went to see Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2. It was a great, easy, relaxing and super fun night with my best gals.

Good food and good friends- what a great mix!
