Peaches Tart

I fancied the idea to make a Peach tart, but I had only three peaches and no cream. So, no Peach Clafutis... Looking better in the back of the fridge I found half a bottle of Peach jam, that's the result:
For the tart follow the crostata 's recipe

Borlotti beans' dip

Yesterday I had some boiled Borlotti beans, they weren't enough to make a salad or something else. I had a look at my fridge and found some Ricotta, remembering a dip my Aunt uses to prepare as antipasto I tried the mix and it was pretty good! 
In a mixer add beans, ricotta and olive oil in this proportion 3 tbsp : 1 tbsp : 1 tbsp. Adjust with salt and pepper and add some more olive oil if you want.

Baked Chicken Nuggets ;P

Kid1 likes burgers and chicken nuggets, but he never asks for BigM or similar fast food restaurants (He tried a couple of time the Happy Meal and that was enough) he looks for mum's dishes, because they taste better :P

My personal Chicken Nuggets' recipe (BAKED not FRIED!!!):

300 gr sliced Chicken breast 
1 egg
5 tbsp Breadcrumbs
2 tbsp grated Parmigiano Reggiano
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil

Cut the chicken breast in small pieces. Beat the egg in a little bowl and adjust with salt. In a plate mix crumbles and cheese, than prepare the crust. Dip the chicken pieces in the egg, roll the pieces in the crumbles-cheese mix, than put them on a baking plate covered with a sheet of baking paper. When all pieces have their crust sprinkle the olive oil on top. Cook the chicken in the oven at 180°C for 30 minutes. 

Kid1 love them dipped in Ketchup ;P

Bueno, this is just home made bread and one of the most fabulous Spanish Jamon...
But my husband assured me he can live eating nothing else ;P

Many thanks to my In-laws for bringing us this delicatessen :D

Go Reds!

This afternoon we'll meet with Kid1's schoolmates (The Reds) at a playground. It's an after-school party, so we'll bring snacks and cookies to eat in the meantime...

Kid1 this morning was looking for Chocolate Chunk Cookies to bring

But I was oriented to something funnier like Sugar Cookies. So, at the end I prepared both :P
