I wanted to write how happy I was about the sunny, summery days I enjoyed this week, but it obviously started to rain as I was writing this post up! Sydney’s weather has been this bad for the past, what, maybe 3 weeks? And it’s supposed to be summer…
So anyway, while I was still in the mood for celebrating summer and my new job, I decided I wanted to make some mini fruit tarts, and, peach being my “craving of the week”, I whipped up these as soon as I got back from my job trial.
They are Shortcrust Pastry shells, filled with Crème Patisserie and topped with fresh Peach slices. I had also planned a gelatin layer, but I couldn’t get my favourite Italian brand of gelatin (having no car truly sucks!), so I just left it. They wouldn’t be around long enough to actually need gelatin, anyway!
Want to know the role I applied for? Waitress at an Indian restaurant down the road, the only position that can accommodate both my future student routine and Student Visa restrictions. And it’s literally a short stroll from where I live, which is good for exercising, too!
Do I sound too ecstatic? But I am! I can’t wait to drop something (hot, on myself, considering my luck), slip and fall, break a few glasses, …
Nothing bad has happened in the first 2 days, but, if I were you, I’d be wary of pale Indian waitresses the next time you crave some curry. Just saying.
Any terrible waitressing experiences you’d like to share to lift my spirits up?
P.S. Please, don’t be offended if I don’t share the recipe with you just yet, however I want to improve it and try again soon since it was a bit too delicate for my tastes. I will follow up on this, pinky promise!
