I fancied trying out a savoury lemon and rosemary tart, but couldn't quite work out how to go about it. To be honest, I didn't plan it out very well at all - I sort of had a vague list of ingredients in my head which I assumed could be brought together to make it tart-worthy.
This is not what actually failed me however.
You know how you have those trustworthy store-cupboard/fridge ingredients? Well, lemons have always been part of this list for me. They always do a cheap deal at t'market, so I tend to buy them in bulk alot.
Of course, when it came to making this lemon tart, I got to the fridge...and there was only one lemon. What?! Ok, so making a lemon tart with only one lemon, when I had planned to use about four? Hm.
Incidentally, I forgot to double-check whether I had cheese, which I planned to use as a sort of binder with double cream and egg for the filling. As luck would have it, there was of course, no cheese in the fridge, so I was left to do without.
I ignored the alarm bells in my head of baking a tart minus two key ingredients, and carried on regardless. Big mistake.
It tasted as bland as I feared. Edible, sure, but it quite literally tasted of nothing. What. A. Waste.
