     Ratatouille can take many forms. 안전놀이터 There's fancy: eggplant, tomatoes and zucchini artfully cut and arranged in a dish before baking - the kind of thing you don't mind getting the china down for. And there's simple: a potentially sloppy mix of long-stewed vegetables, liable to collapse in an oily heap on your everyday plates before being devoured. The same can be said for ratatouille baked in a crust. It can be an elegant tart, a dainty quiche or, as in this case, a rustic pie that's homely, but impossible to resist. Its golden crust shatters messily when you cut it. The custard filling could leak, escaping the pastry. The cheese may brown; the tomatoes on top may shrivel. None of that matters when you taste it, each buttery, creamy, vegetable-filled bite flavoured with herbs and olives, and covered in cheese. This recipe is very loosely based on a Southern tomato pie. There's a parbaked pie crust anchoring the vegetables, and a custard imbued with mayonnaise and cheese to bind them. But that's where the similarities end. Here, I skipped the raw tomatoes, substituting a mix of summer vegetables cooked in plenty of olive oil until velvety soft. I particularly like to roast them so they caramelise and release much of their moisture, which keeps the pastry from turning soggy. If you have leftover ratatouille or any kind of cooked vegetables - roasted, grilled, sautéed - in your fridge, you could use those instead. You'll need about three to four cups of cooked vegetables, enough to fill the crust by two-thirds.   If you are using your own cooked vegetables instead of roasting them as in the recipe, be sure to stir in plenty of herbs: basil, rosemary and thyme. These add a lot in terms of complexity, and keep the olives from taking over. 카지노사이트주소 Now, about the mayonnaise. While it may seem like an odd match with ratatouille, it has an inherent tanginess that works well with the richness of the vegetables. I did try baking a version using crème fraîche to make it a little more French-seeming. But, to me, the result was insipid. Purists can make their own mayonnaise if anyone objects to using the stuff from the jar. No matter how else you tweak it, make sure to bake the pie on the day of serving. This hot mess is its best, stunning self when it's just that: just baked, a little warm from the oven and delightfully gooey.

    Most fruit tarts flaunt their bright fillings. Whether their fruit is added to pastry before or after baking, they are vivid confections - conspicuously appealing and hard to resist. 안전놀이터 This plum tart is a dessert of a shyer order, less ostentatious than its flashy friends. On the surface, it's subtle, looking like a giant shortbread cookie. But once it's cut, the tart reveals a magenta stripe of simmered plums in each slice - fragrant with cinnamon and glistening with honey. The recipe is based on a gâteau Breton, a traditional flat cake from Brittany consisting of an egg yolk-enriched, butter-based dough that sometimes sandwiches jam or dried fruit purée. Older recipes often call for using all- or part-buckwheat flour, once the region's principal grain (and used in its famous crepes). Now, you are more likely to see gâteaux Breton made with regular wheat flour, which, in combination with the butter, gives it a particularly rich, crumbly texture. I have made the recipe with puréed dried apricots or prunes in the centre, homemade or spooned from jars of lekvar (also known as prune or apricot butter). But when fresh plums are plentiful, it makes sense to use those instead. And, if you find red or purple ones, they will make for an extremely pretty slice. You will need to cook the plums down, but that takes only about 15 minutes. While they simmer, you can add aromatics to the pot. I threw in a cinnamon stick and a rosemary sprig, along with some honey. But feel free to play around with other herbs and spices. A few slices of ginger root and some lemon thyme could also be nice. 바카라사이트   You could also skip the compote and substitute jam in a layer as thick or thin as you like. A thin one will be elegant and restrained; a thick spread, sweeter and more extravagantly messy. Just be sure to choose a jam with good acidity, so that it is tangy next to the buttery dough. Raspberry and orange marmalade fare better than strawberry and peach, but the possibilities for variation are many. Or stick with the plum compote, and consider serving this as dessert for your Rosh Hashana dinner. Rich and honeyed, it is a sweetly appropriate treat to usher in the New Year. Yield: 12 servings Time: 1 ½ hours Ingredients1 cup plus 1 to 3 Tbs granulated sugar2⅓ cups all-purpose flour¾ tsp ground cinnamon¼ tsp fine sea salt225 g unsalted butter (2 sticks), diced, plus more for greasing pan1 large egg5 large egg yolks4 large plums, halved, pitted, and sliced 6cm thick (about 2¼ cups)2 Tbs full-flavoured honey such as wildflower1 cinnamon stick1 small sprig rosemary (optional) Method 인터넷카지노1. In a food processor, process 1 cup sugar until powdery and fine, about 1 minute. Add flour, cinnamon and salt; pulse to combine. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add egg and 4 egg yolks, and pulse until mixture comes together. Divide dough in half, form into disks, and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill at least 2 hours or until firm. 2. In a small saucepan, combine plums, 1 to 3 Tbs sugar (this depends on how sweet your plums are), cinnamon, honey and rosemary sprig, if using. Simmer until jammy and thick, 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer plum mixture to a bowl to cool, and remove cinnamon stick and rosemary sprig. Taste and stir in more sugar if mixture seems very tart. 3. Heat oven to 170 deg C. Grease an 20-cm springform pan and place it on a rimmed baking sheet to catch any butter leaks. 4. Between two sheets of parchment paper or plastic wrap, roll one of the dough halves into an 20cm circle. Transfer dough to prepared cake pan, pressing into edges. Spoon plum compote on top of dough, leaving 2cm border around edge. 5. Roll second piece of dough into an 20cm circle, transfer to pan, press around outside edge to stick the pieces together and seal in fruit. 6. In a small bowl, combine remaining egg yolk with 1 tsp water and beat lightly. Brush over top of cake, then use a fork to score a crisscross pattern into the dough. Bake until golden brown, 1 hour (cover with foil if cake is browning too quickly). Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then run a butter knife around the inside edge of the pan and unmold from ring. Cool completely and serve.

    I would like to know, is it possible to remove or report my own questions that I have? I have asked some questions on Yahoo Answers that have some personal details in them and I would like to have them removed. I asked the website there but they so far the answers that I got was not that helpful. 안전놀이터   So far when I ask there they just give me 1. Click on the pencil icon and delete your questions 2. Once you have a best answer you cannot delete it. 바카라사이트 I know that you can report questions so I have other accounts on YA and I have been reporting my questions and so far that works. But I want to know what more effective measures that I can use to delete my questions?

    As a father of three, I can imagine the anger and frustration felt by his parents, in particular his mother who rightfully pointed out that the punishment should serve as a deterrent for the sake of future full-time national servicemen (NSFs) who may be subject to similar treatment. 온라인카지노 What confounds me is the lack of common sense on the part of the commanders who chose to conduct a run a day before the fast march in the belief that it would "enhance fitness and foster cohesion". In order to perform well in physically strenuous activities, we need sufficient rest. In this case, not only did they conduct a run the day before but they also chose to spot check the soldiers after lights out. Based on a few soldiers using their phones, the whole platoon was punished. 온라인카지노   If the commander felt the need to punish them, couldn't the punishment have been meted out after the fast march? Again, common sense was lacking. The next question is, was the punishment in proportion to the so-called offence. Push-ups, crunches, sprints, bear crawls and leopard crawls done in the middle of the night are cruel and unnecessary punishment. This punishment, carried out the night before the fast march, would have added to the physical, mental and emotional stress of the soldiers. Although the Committee of Inquiry (COI) reports that the soldiers had six hours and 15 minutes of sleep, this is based on the time they went to bed after the punishment. No one knows how long they took to fall asleep and how many of them actually had restful sleep after undergoing such punishment. 카지노사이트 Although the COI seems to focus on other factors, including measures to prevent heat injuries and reduce the delay in getting medical attention, the fact remains that CFC Lee's death was mostly caused by the irresponsible and unprofessional behaviour of his commanders. We need to send a strong message to those who would perpetrate such offences that the law will come down very hard on them.

    Taking a step back, we might find that beyond setting boundaries, it is the parent-child relationship that remains foundational to this conversation on screen time. 바카라사이트  By nurturing a closer relationship with our children in everyday life, we can raise them to be disciplined and discerning users of online media. When we are sincere about sharing our children's online activities without judgment and criticism, they will reciprocate and want to know what we think. In ScreenEd, Focus on the Family Singapore's workshop on media usage, we first encourage parents and children to share and understand each other's perspectives on online media. 안전놀이터 This enables two-way communication, where parents can naturally teach principles of discipline and discernment to their children, instead of being perceived as enforcing rules and boundaries without reason.   Moreover, enjoying everyday conversations builds love and trust between parents and children, making it easier for parents to later address inappropriate content and behaviour where necessary. Our children learn to recognise that we speak to them about rules and boundaries out of wholehearted concern and a hope to protect them, instead of a desire to punish. The discussion on managing screen time ultimately presents an old issue under a new guise. 인터넷카지노 Before smartphones and online media became widely accessible, parents and experts were concerned about the excessive use of television and inappropriate programmes. Likewise, the importance of a strong parent-child relationship remains unchanged. It is the foundation for us to teach our children wisdom and independence in making life choices.

    Mr Seah Yam Meng claims that society should offer euthanasia as an alternative to reduce the high rate of elderly suicide.  However, euthanasia should not be legalised because it is just a glorified form of suicide. 카지노사이트주소 Just because it involves an official document and a doctor does not change the fact that someone is in such a dark and lonely place that he has decided his life is not worth living. We have to work on creating a community that will help people find a reason to keep living, not give them a quick "solution" to end all their problems. By legalising euthanasia, the responsibility is pushed on to the person in question, not the people around who could make a change. 바카라사이트주소 This would make euthanasia seem ideal to the uninvolved because this places them on a moral high ground.   It is an easier way to deal with illness and suffering. Last, it is illogical to compare putting down animals with euthanasia for humans. Animals do not have a say in ending their lives, their owners do. Often, we focus on our pain instead of how we can come out of it stronger. 안전놀이터 I cannot imagine the pain that terminally ill people go through, but I believe that if they put up a good fight, they would be an inspiration to others who are battling the same illness to keep fighting. To fight is to take a gamble on your life, but to not do so is to guarantee death.
