It’s been a good month plus since I’ve participated in a Sunday Supper event with my fellow food bloggers. The theme this week is Mother’s Day. I had the perfect recipe picked out after asking my wife what she wanted me to make for her this weekend. She had her eye, or is it stomach, on a vegetable tart she found on Pinterest placed on her aptly named “Cook (or things Chris needs to make because I don’t cook)” board. I gathered the ingredients and was going to make it Saturday so we could enjoy Sunday spending time throughout southern California.

Saturday came and went pretty quickly. We spent the day at the Long Beach Queen Mary Barbecue Festival and ended a long day enjoying some taco truck tacos in Pasadena.  The vegetable tart had to wait until Sunday lunch.  Fortunately this is a fairly quick recipe, helped by my already having a finished pie crust in the freeze that was thawed out for this weekend.

I added some asparagus to the recipe and the pie crust is Martha Stewart’s Pate Brisee recipe. The pie crust makes for buttery, flaky “tart.”  It’s good, but I think I prefer a basic tart recipe or perhaps some filo dough. That said, this is still a great recipe with the pie crust and makes for a great way to use some leftover pie dough.

While I didn’t get to do Sunday Supper this weekend, I definitely will make my return next weekend with the group’s Slow Cooking theme. For now, be sure to checkout all of the excellent Mother’s Day recipes from the other food bloggers.

Mother’s Day: Guest Blog for Family Foodie

I participate in some fun on twitter every Sunday evening where @FamilyFoodie started a twitter chat called #SundaySupper. It simply is a way of sharing what everyone is eating or cooking Sunday night.  What a great simple thought that generates some inspiration for my own home cooking and also is an opportunity to share what I love with fellow home cooks.

This past week I wrote a guest blog post on the Family Foodie blog showcasing one of my wife’s favorite meals – Mediterranean Turkey Burgers.

Please checkout my guest post and do have a look at the other great Mother’s Day posts from other dad’s this past week featuring my friend Ted Rubin, @fsutoby, and Jim Joseph.
