Let me back up. Last Wednesday a great dessert was discovered. We came home at about the same time.
"How was your day?"
"Crazy. We discovered two errors totaling $7 million. People in my office, both phone lines ringing. You know. How about yours?"
"I did an international wire online that the bank turned into a completely different amount. I was on the phone with customer service for hours and then I had to go to the bank to fix it. At least, I hope it's fixed."
You've heard of breakfast for dinner. At our house last Wednesday, it was dessert for dinner. And I owe it all to my fellow bloggers. Cristine at Cooking with Cristine chose Dorie's Quick Classic Berry Tart for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe. And my blogging friend Nancy has influenced me so much that I had both a mini tart shell and chocolate ganache in the freezer. And for an even more satisfying tart, I made this with organic berries from my CSA box:
I had baked the tart shell the night before, so it only took 5 minutes to assemble the tart. 90 seconds in the microwave to melt the ganache, wash and slice a few berries, and assemble. Brushing it with jam was only for show. If I wasn't posting it, I would have skipped that.
We split it for dinner, and both felt much better. We each still had problems to deal with at work, but I think Cristine's pick made an awful day end on a very happy note. Thanks, Cristine! This is definitely in our top 5 Dorie desserts.
