My Mom’s Bling

dragon-eye

Let’s look at it this way…

Everybody has issues.

I have issues, you have issues.

My Mom has bling issues!

She just loves bling stuff and spends fortune on that.

Her collection is getting HUGE.

Which, in fact, is good for her and for me too because I happen to get something nice from time to time and I have great objects to take pictures of.

Just have a look …

Nuts And Apples

Time to pick nuts and apples Ladies and Gentlemen.

Of course if you are lucky enough to own the right bushes and trees.

Although I don’t possess such lovely stuff yet, I know the right people.

And that pays off.

This is a tiny bit of the huge garden we’ve had the opportunity to visit today.

Looks gorgeous, doesn’t it?

The nuts were waiting for us to be picked.

For helping, we happened to get these teeny potato loaves with sesame seeds on top.

They tasted fantastic!

And then…

Puff Pastry Cheese Twists

I find these cuties to be a great choice for appetizers.

Your guests will surely love them!

The story of me finding the inspiration to prepare them starts on our recent vacation in Hungary.

Actually, I saw it on TV while trying to fall asleep in a hotel.

Kids were preparing them with a little help from some lovely lady.

But the kids made their own dough.

And I didn’t.

The kids DID.

~~~

So you need:

1 package of  that puff dough I was talking about

as much ketchup as you like

as much hard cheese as you like (the stronger in flavor the better)

as much oregano as you like (fresh or dried)

1 egg to spread on top

~~~

1. Preheat an oven to 350 F (176 C).

2. On a floured surface roll out the thawed dough into a rectangle shape.

3. Spread ketchup over the surface.

Sprinkle with grated cheese and oregano.

4. Divide the sheet of dough visually in half and fold it over to form two layers.

Roll gently with a rolling pin to seal.

5. Cut into 1 1/4 inch (3 cm) strips.

6. Twist the strips.

Place them on a baking sheet, pressing down the ends.

Brush the pastries with the egg mixture and sprinkle lightly with oregano.

7. Bake for 13 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove the pastries from the baking sheet and let cool on a wire rack.

Bon Appetit!
