Recipe: Sundried Tomato & Feta Tarts

To commiserate the end of our little break over the Christmas/New Year period, B and I decided to make the most of Melbourne finally turning on some sunshine and headed out for a picnic. I love everything about picnics – preparing the food, packing the picnic basket (probably because B bought me an awesome old fashioned basket for my birthday a few years back!), lying in the sunshine and of course, eating the food. I generally waaaay over cater, and this was no exception, but I prefer to have lots of different things to eat even if that means bringing a lot back home again!

I generally keep my picnic food heavy on the savoury items, with a few sweet treats to enjoy at the end. This time I made both my simple potato salad and roast cauliflower & chickpea salad, as well as some cheeses (mandatory at a picnic with B and I!), strawberries, chocolate & walnut cookies (recipe to come soon, I promise!) and these sundried tomato & feta tarts!

This is how happy picnics make us!

      Thanks Lila! I think waiting until this crazy weather cools down until you picnic is a good idea – it’s far too hot out there for my liking at the moment!

    Yum, these look great, and very easy to make, bookmarking them for my planned Australia Day weekend baking session.
    I love picnics but don’t go on them as much as I would like to. Though hubby did pick me up for lunch last week (I was back at work, he was still on holidays) and instead of going to a restaurant liked we planned, he surprised me with a picnic! 🙂

      That’s so lovely of him! I don’t go on picnics as much as I’d like either, but it’s better than not at all!
