I've been in a sort of use it up, wear it out kind of mood these past few days, and with this in mind I thought I would make a batch of pastry using the last of the Trex from the fridge, with however much spread I needed to balance it out, and with obviously double the weight of flour to keep the measurements correct.
A pinch of salt, a bit of rubbing in, then a splash of water and a few minutes later I had two balls of pastry weighing in together at 1lb 4ozs ... isn't it weird that I weigh for baking in imperial measures yet everything else I do is in metric ... yes I baffle myself sometimes!!
If I decide I need any more pastry for a recipe I am going to try Thrifty Lesley's Making Pastry with Oil recipe blogged about HERE. After all I have lots of oil and quite a bit of flour left.
So now I'm going to raid the fridge and see what fillings I can come up with to use up some or all of my now rested pastry. I love things in pastry.
Oh ... and in other news I think I mentioned about using the last of my beans the other day, guess what I found in the cupboard hiding behind the bag of self raising flour ... yep, a tin of beans. Never has finding a tin of beans made me so happy :-)
