Baking again ...
But this time, its for lunch and its not a cake. Lunch on weekends is a headache for me. I dont really like to cook full meals and its difficult to cook for 2 as well. So before we end up with another plate of chicken rice, I decided to use up the puff pastry that's been sitting in my freezer for a good 3 mths!!! But dont worry lah, its not expired yet.
I opened up a can of tuna in oil (I dont fancy the one with water cos it does not taste as good) and marinated it with some lemon juice. Then I chopped up the onion and chillies to be mixed in. Be generous with your mayonnaise if you want it to taste real good. So, if you are on a diet, dont eat this at all. And if you want to eat this, do it the right way .. muahahahahaha. Salt and pepper to be added according to your liking.
Before putting it into your oven, brush some egg white over the pastry. Then bake until its nicely puffed and color is golden brown.
I am surprised with how easy it is handling puff pastry. And oh boy, after baking it, it sure does smell and taste really good! Even hubby said it was nice, which is rare cos he would prefer the "cina" food normally.
