For the past 4 years or so I have tried very hard to avoid fat in my diet, due to a high cholesterol level caused by a thyroid deficiency. However, with my various health issues currently being controlled by my thyroid medication and my recent increased level of exercise I have been tempted by some of the delicacies on offer at the Ramsey Saturday Farmer's Market.
Last week we were "obliged" to buy some tarts from the local Goat Farm stall in the market - just to be polite of course. I had the goat cheese and spinach and P had the goat cheese with caramelised onion. They were on offer at two packs of two tarts for £10 so I duly bought one of each. We had the first pack last week and finished off the second this evening, (we had frozen the remaining tarts and they were still great).
When we visited the market this weekend the tarts had already sold out but there were a few curried lamb and lentil pasties still available. Dear reader, I could not resist. One pasty came home with me and I divided it into two portions for our lunch. The wonderful "goat lady" makes absolutely heavenly pastry. Light, crisp and melt in the mouth.
I hope that my waistline can cope with all this "Buy Local " fervour.
