Sugar High Friday

by Cate on June 18, 2005

Yep, it’s that time again. Sugar High Friday has reared its head, this time hosted by Life in Flow, the host of Food Porn Watch, a great roundup of all the food blogs. The theme is Tarts and I present to you my Banana Cream Tart. Actually, this is the first time I’ve used my tart pan, which I’ve had for nearly a year!


Banana Cream Tart

Between my Mom, sister and I, all the spouses are out of town (Moscow, Greece and the Jersey Shore!), so we opted to get take-out from a local restaurant for dinner, and made it a Blockbuster night. Dinner was Lobster Bisque soup and Calamari Salad, and we all shared Hummus with Pita Wedges and Onion Straws. Everything was delicious, and I’m still full! Lobster Bisque is one of my favorites, and they had the perfect amount of sherry in it. We saw Hitch with Will Smith and Eva Mendes — cute movie and good soundtrack.

The Husband has the kids down the shore, and I have the house to myself. Boy is it quiet! Although it will be nice to take advantage of the peace and catch up on some stuff, I miss them already!

Stephanie at Dispensing Happiness tagged me for a cookbook meme that’s floating around the blogging world. Tune in tomorrow to get the dirt.

Until then…

I love your square tart pan! I’ve been looking for one like that ever since Cooking Light ran the strawberry almond tart on the cover.

Your banana tart looks great and it sounds like you had a well deserved “Girls Night In.”

Funny, I was just on YOUR site checking out your entry. Nice tiramisu tart! I can find the square tart pans here easily — want me to send you one?

I suggest add few nuts into it to make it taste better.
