Our Mia has turned 9. Where did that time go?
So Mia's other Grandma had Family dinner to celebrate this occasion.
Karen made Fab little cup cakes. Chocolate Mint...Yum
I wanted to make something different.
Did a little bit of research, One of my favourite TV programmes is the Canadian "Cook Like a Chef".
This programme takes real Chefs who demonstrate different techniques and supply some good recipes.
I really fancied these little Pinwheels supplied by Michael Bonacini
I mean when you are having a couple... there is nothing like little savouries.
The aroma drags you in... I defy you to turn these down
I have adjusted the recipe, to use ingredients I could get at the supermarket.
And it was very good
So actually I now "Own this recipe" to quote Simon Cowell
1 packet puff pastry
200 gms soft goat cheese
2 tablespoons thyme leaves
Freshly ground black pepper
100 gms thinly sliced ham
Or 100 gms smoked salmon
1 egg beaten with a little water

Roll out pastry into 2 rectangles
Spread mustard over one of the rectangles leaving a 1 inch border
Layer ham over the top
Roll it up to the egg wash border keep it tight.

Or you can do this in advance up to 24 hours.
